Ultrasonic Tooling Vise for CJ-20/CR-20/CH-20/CS-20

$410.00

This stainless steel stack vise is designed specifically to clamp 20KHz converter front slugs and booster spanner “collars” during assembly or disassembly to reduce damage to expensive ultrasonic stack components.

The vise features two clamping chambers, one for tooling 1.625″ (41.3 mm) dia. and one for tooling 1.8″ (45.7 mm) dia. The two-pin hinge design allows the upper jaw to “float” and seek the best clamp position on the tool for maximum contact. The securing bolt has a long lever handle that can be re-positioned out of the way once secured. The securing bolt can be completely removed so the upper vise jaw can be fully opened. The steel spanner-hole pins are set in stepped holes such that they can be driven out from the bottom of the vise should they ever need replacement.

Description

This stainless steel stack vise is designed specifically to clamp 20KHz converter front slugs and booster spanner “collars” during assembly or disassembly to reduce damage to expensive ultrasonic stack components.

The vise features two clamping chambers, one for tooling 1.625″ (41.3 mm) dia. and one for tooling 1.8″ (45.7 mm) dia. The two-pin hinge design allows the upper jaw to “float” and seek the best clamp position on the tool for maximum contact. The securing bolt has a long lever handle that can be re-positioned out of the way once secured. The securing bolt can be completely removed so the upper vise jaw can be fully opened. The steel spanner-hole pins are set in stepped holes such that they can be driven out from the bottom of the vise should they ever need replacement.

The footprint of the vise is 5.25″ (133.4 mm) by 4.0″ (101.6mm). Mounted on the edge of a workbench or tool cart, it is easy to rotate large horns in space when the booster is clamped, and the converter is kept safe over the top of the bench or cart.

The usual stack assembly procedure is to clamp the converter and add the booster, then clamp the booster and add the horn. Disassembly occurs in reverse order. This ensures that the converter front slug is best protected from spanner hole damage which could result in premature converter failure. This also frees up both hands so the component being assembled or disassembled can be supported as it is being rotated.

Note: 1.5″ (38.1 mm) dia is the standard size of 900 series and most other 20KHz converter front slugs and many 20KHz booster and horn spanner collars and will not fit this vise. Front slugs for 2000, 2000X and DCX series converters (CJ-20, CR-20, CH-20 and AM44C20 models) are 1.625″ (41.3 mm) diameter and will fit this tooling vise.  If you have both vises, the vise that fits 800/900 series converters and most other tooling will be stamped with the number 9 on top of the upper jaw near the hinge pin.  The vise that fits CJ-20 family converters will be stamped with a number 2 on top of the upper jaw near the hinge pin.

High Pressure Silicone Ultrasonic Stack Grease
The function of grease in the joint is to: 1. Fill the microscopic valleys in the surface of the tooling to improve acoustic transfer from one component to the next. 2. Remain in the joint so the metal of the two pieces of tooling do not become "clad" together by the action of the ultrasound and thus impossible to disassemble. Never use grease and a polymer washer in the same joint.

Polymer (Mylar) Washers for Stack Joints (35 pack)
These washers made of heat-resistant Mylar(TM) can be used instead of high pressure silicone grease in ultrasonic stack joints. IMPORTANT: Use a new washer each time the tooling is reassembled. Do not use both grease and a washer in the same joint. Washers come 35 to a pack. Order the number of packs you want, not the number of washers.
