Machine vises are mechanical devices used to hold workpieces stationary during high-speed machining operations. They offer excellent stability and dampening to compensate for excessive vibrations brought about by milling, drilling, shaping, and grinding. Furthermore, machine vises are commonly made from cast iron steel and have jaws that can be adjusted by a screw mechanism to grip workpieces in place. Machine vises are available in different types to meet the precision requirements of various machining applications.
