Hemly Tool Supply carries a range of vises from Kurt Manufacturing that are suitable for precision manufacturing and assembly. Popular with customers in semiconductor, aerospace, automotive, oil, and defense industries, Kurt is a manufacturer of advanced workholding technology solutions. For whatever project you’re working on, Kurt vises offer reliability, variety and precision.


A Minneapolis-based, employee-owned company founded in 1946, Kurt Manufacturing has always been committed to customer satisfaction through continuous improvement. The company introduced its vises to market in the 1950s and it has been the gold standard ever since.


If your Kurt vises are accidentally damaged, Kurt supplies a full range of replacement parts, including vise jaw replacement kits. In addition, Kurt offers a Lifetime Iron Clad Warranty on all products. Authorized Kurt workholding repair centers are located across the U.S., with two conveniently located in Ohio (Cuyahoga Falls and Blanchester).


When selecting which vise to buy, it’s important to know what your specific needs are. Things to consider when shopping for vises are size, clamping force, jaw width, and the vise type best suited for your projects.


Hemly Tool Supply offers a wide variety of Kurt Manufacturing vises including:


High-density: Kurt’s high-density vises are compact to allow for maximum workholding across a full range of machining centers. They are designed to provide maximum work piece immobility and damp clutter-induced vibration.


High precision single station: Kurt offers high precision vises that reduce jaw stationary deflection by 80 percent. These single station vises offer high precision, repeatability, and up to 12,000 lbs of clamping force. Horizontally or vertically mountable, vises are available in manual, air or hydraulic options.  


Modular: Kurt’s modular vise parts are included in the SeraLock, WedgeLock, MoveLock and MiniLock workholding systems. Components may be mixed and matched, often creating custom fixtures.


Hydraulic vises: Kurt’s hydraulic vises are ideal for larger machining centers or any machine shop that manufactures large runs of the same product. Hydraulic vises enable consistent, repeatable clamping pressures, allowing machining centers to efficiently run long jobs where the same part is repeatedly run.


Specialty vises: Kurt’s specialty vises include the Self-Centering vise, the XL Extra Capacity Vise, and the VB 5AX100 Schenke Clamping System. These vises are designed for unique situations and vary in sizes and uses.
