Diamond grippers feature an abrasive surface that is permanently fused to a stainless steel pad. The surface texture is comparable to a 100 grit abrasive. These grippers are ideal for holding smooth or slippery workpieces with minimum clamping pressure. Individual diamond particles transfer holding pressure to a very small and well distributed area, providing superior holding with minimal surface marking. The diamond surface also provides unparalleled wear resistance. The pad is made from 17-4 stainless steel which provides high strength as well as protection against chemical and environmental corrosion. Heat treated to Rc 43/46. Blind-hole tap for back side mounting and C'Bore styles available.
Sof-Top, urethane grippers have a rubber surface that is permanently bonded to a 300 series stainless steel pad. The non-marking, non-staining urethane provides excellent protection against damage on delicate work surfaces. The “bubbled” texture of the urethane pad offers firm holding and allows air to escape so no suction is created between the contact surface and the top of the rest pad as it is compressed. Because the top is made of urethane, they offer superior abrasion and wear resistance. They are available in three durometers to meet a wide variety of application needs. Blind-hole tap for back side mounting.
