Applications

“ This is a text book example of high quality product that offers a dynamic approach to both prototype and production batch work. The Lang Makro Grip System has played a pivotal role in the production of rapid – prototype parts for successful CE Marking of our Image-Guided Radio Therapy System.

Using the modular functionality that Lang Zero Point offers has allowed rapid transfer of workholding devices and saved us a considerable amount of time. With only 3mm of clamping depth required, stock material can be vastly reduced and large components located with impressive rigidity.”

Ryan Wightwick (ENG Tech MIMechE) – Industrial Engineer – Elekta LTD

You would think that gripping a component at 500mm long with only 1 Makro Grip 125 vice in the center would be an application which lends itself to vibration. The patented stamping technology allows Lang users to grip on 3mm with confidence that vibration is kept down to a minimum and finished part can be achieved in one operation.
