The RotoVise

The RotoVise maximizes 4th axis machining with multi-part, multi-sided workholding. Holding four parts with access to multiple faces is a 12x production boost over a traditional vise. The jaws are 3 inches wide with a maximum part length of 7.85 inches long using the outboard jaw positions.

RotoVise Features:
- Body made from thru-hardened ductile cast iron
2 - Nickel plated body and carriers for maximum corrosion resistance
3 - Sealed lead screws eliminate chip jamming
4 - Hardened steel jaws feature serrated, step and flat sides
5 - Adapter plate bolts to 4 or 6 slot platters

6. Where can I purchase a RotoVise?

1. When will the RotoVise be available?
The new RotoVise is currently finishing production with shipments begining October 9th on a first-order-first-ship basis. Orders ship in the order they are placed. Until full inventory is established, please limit 1 RotoVise per customer.

2. Do I need a tailstock?
Simply put, a tailstock is NOT needed. Because of the compact length, rigid materials and parts held closely to the rotary table face, tailstocks have no effect on performance. We've rigorously tested and perfected the RotoVise for over two years by cutting aluminum, steel, stainless, cast iron and hardened alloys with excellent results and surface finishes at aggressive feed rates (250-600 ipm depending on material and finish) without the need for a tailstock.

3. What materials can I machine?
As previously mentioned, we've machined aluminum, steel, stainless, cast iron and hardened steels during the two year development of the RotoVise. In fact, most components of the RotoVise are made on the RotoVise! For comparison, we machine the ductile cast iron sliding jaw carriers at 300 ipm, .750" doc and .050" woc with a 4 flute 1/2 inch diameter carbide endmill with amazing results.

4. What types of rotary tables can it adapt to?
The RotoVise is designed to bolt to all brands of rotary tables that use 4 or 6 t-slots platters. For best results, only use rotary tables that have integrated pneumatic brakes that provide a minimum of 100 ft-lbs (136 Nm) of brake torque. Manual rotary tables also work well as long as they have a manual locking brake.

5. What is the clamping force of the RotoVise?
Each jaw station grips with up to 5,000 lbs of clamping force. Let's break this down... a good conventional 6 inch vise clamps with about 8,000 lbs. With only 3 inch wide jaws, the RotoVise has an equivalent clamping force of over 10,000 lbs compared to the surface area of 6 inch vises.

6. Where can I purchase a RotoVise?
All of our products can be purchased directly through us. This allows us to establish a close relationship with our customers and provide the best applicaton advice possible.
