The lucky winner received a new Piranha Clamp Centring Vice package worth over £1100!
Phase 3 CNC Ltd are pleased to announce the winner of their Piranha Clamp Centring Vice prize draw which they ran while exhibiting at Mach18. The lucky winner was Mr Richard Lawrence, Production Manager from MGS Precision Engineering.
The prize was presented at the premises of MGS Precision Engineering in Stone, Staffordshire on Friday 11th May. Richard and the engineers were impressed with the Snapper 170 centring vice and base plate, and particularly so as Piranha vices eliminate the need for pre-clamping. They will be trialling the vice on one of their Mikron machines.
Piranha-Clamp is 100% manufactured in Switzerland and offers numerous performance advantages for the user. Featuring specially hardened and coated twin cylindrical jaw guiding system, the Piranha-Clamp centring vices ensure high repetition accuracy and extreme clamping power.
Material loss and billet size are kept to a minimum by using 3mm serrated clamping jaws, which, due to the tremendous clamping forces employed on the vices mean no pre-clamping of the component is necessary. Tests have shown a significant reduction in billet vibration during heavy machining. Additionally, the patented quick-change system enables super-fast changeovers with the wide variety of jaws available from Piranha Clamp.
