Vektek: Spring Advance Work Supports


  • Available in four capacities from 1,000 to 12,500 lbs, these units adapt to support fragile parts, heavy parts or “hog out” applications.
  • When using the 3-2-1 locating principles, you often need additional support for a 4th, 5th or even more areas on your part. A work support will give you “floating” locators which won’t interfere with your 3, 2 or 1 locators. Clamp over your locators then lock the supports.
  • Spring extended plungers maintain contact with the part during loading, exerting only spring force against the part. When hydraulic pressure is applied the plunger freezes without exerting any additional force on the part.

Proprietary wiper and seal designs reduce con­tam­i­na­tion and drag for longer lasting, better performing Work Supports.  Stainless steel plunger and sleeve assemblies help guard against corrosion in most machining environments.  Precision fit plunger/sleeve assemblies allow VektorFlo® Work Supports to begin to lock at lower pressures and build support faster.

If spring advance supports are to be used in flood coolant environments (consider air advance) attach tubing to the vent port and route to clean, dry air to keep coolant from being drawn in and becoming sticky on internal surfaces.

Standard SAE porting and alternate O-Ring manifold face seal is located in the base of the support for bolt down installation. The base can be removed for direct cartridge mounting.
