Kurt Workholding is rolling out the new DX8 CrossOver® vise to bring the same benchmark DX-series vise features to the 8-inch vise platform
The Kurt DX8 CrossOver® vise is the newest and largest vise in the DX CrossOver® vise family. We’ve combined the best features of the Kurt D810 and Kurt 3800V vises into a single vise with state-of-the-art features that set a new standard in precision flatness, parallelism and repeatability.
DX8 CrossOver features new body design
The premium, one-piece body design, now standard on all our general-purpose vises was designed using Finite Element Analysis and has 30% Less horizontal (push back) deflection than previous DX models. Less vise-body deflection means more stability than a bolt-on design allows and a lifetime of dimensional precision. It’s the same design we’ve used successfully on 3600V and 3800V models for years.
The DX8 CrossOver® vise features the same bed height and keyway to the stationary jaw face as the D810 and a redesigned nut with lighter weight, a new brush seal design and a larger, stronger bearing pack that’s more durable than previous vise designs.
