Quickly load your workpiece

Use EZ-Lift lifting magnets together with the MagVISE magnetic workholding system to significantly reduce your load/unload and workpiece set-up times.

Machine all 5-sides

It’s easy to perform complex 5-sided machining using the MagVISE. You can even machine on 5 sides while holding a large number of workpieces using an array of MagVISE blocks.

The machinable soft jaws permit workpiece nesting for improved accuracy over other workholding systems. Also, you can machine right through the part without affecting the workholding.

Custom workholding fast

Use a MagVISE array to easily create custom magnetic workholding for large jobs and/or multiple workpieces. You can even hold a variety of different size and shaped workpieces all with one set-up.
