Kigumi vice series
What is “Kigumi”?
“Kigumi” is a Japanese word meaning wooden framework and a traditional construction technique used for the “Horyuji temple” which is the oldest existing wooden building in the world built in the 7th century. The key idea of Kigumi vice derives from the Kigumi technique which has been supporting the roof of the Horyuji temple for more than 1,400 years, so we realized the extreme precise clamping accuracy with this technique.
Spring Structure as Key Concept
Chucking depth 0.3 mm but accuracy ± 1 μm
Elastic deformation by its spring structure and hight adjust enables everybody to achieve the perfect chucking accuracy easily.
- fit workpiece perfectly by elastic deformation.
- best clamping force by spring structure is available to even brittle materials like glass, crystal, resin or aluminium
- easy operation requires no experience
- hight adjust for the best potitioning to give chucking force correctly
- angled slit structure on jaw plate keeps workpiece against both of lifting and bending
- available to cylindrical workpieces by elastic deformation
- chucking 2 workpieces is possible
