A machine vise
is necessary to clamp in a workpiece. This is the case for all types of machine tools, no matter if it is a drilling or milling machine
. Machines, where the workpieces rotate, use a clamping device with a rotating chuck. The machine vise
is generally much more precisely produced than a normal vise. Thereby, it has a stronger clamping force.
- Clamping in of a workpiece for processing
- Various forms depending on the workpiece
- Used in machining processes, workpiece and fixture construction

An important criteria of a vise is its clamping jaws. These can be switched and adjusted. A stable body supports the fixed clamping jaw. The movable clamping jaw travels along tracks, which is moved using a threaded spindle. On machine vises
, this is a trapezoidal screw. Various forms like the normal parallel vise, swivel vise, revolving vise and the folding vise are common. A machine vise
is accurately clamped onto the machining table using slots and sliding blocks. These sliding blocks ensure the precise alignment of the vise. Clamping jaws of various sizes are available.
