A new, hand operated Pneumatic/Hydraulic Pump has been introduced by Kurt Workholding for use with its hydraulic vises, cluster towers and swing clamps. Machinists now have a choice of foot or hand operated pumps to provide constant pressure to their hydraulic workholding setups. Compact, portable and lightweight, this new hand-operated 5000 PSI Air Hydraulic Pump provides constant hydraulic pressure and holding power for a wide range of precision clamping applications. The new pump model is driven by a high efficiency, one horsepower pneumatic motor and operated with a convenient, easy-to-use hand operated switch lever. The pump maintains constant pressure when the lever is actuated regardless of system pressure, ensuring accurate and repeatable clamping pressure with every clamping cycle.
Designed for single acting systems, both hand and foot operated pump models give Kurt Hydraulic workholding users a pump design that operates effectively and efficiently with all of its Hydraulic products. Weighing just 22 lbs., both model pumps can be easily moved and reconnected from one clamping station to another. Also available from Kurt is an electric operated pump with 5000 PSI when shop air is not available. This pump has a dump feature that allows you to shuttle pallets in and out of a CNC without the pressure lines attached. It has an adjustable pressure range of 580-5000psi. The pump is self-contained with easy to read features including the fill level and pressure gauge.
Manufactured to ISO 9001:2008 quality standards, the Model KHP5000PH and KHP5000PF have these additional features:
- Can be used with all Kurt single acting 4, 6, and 8 inch vises.
- Internal load limiting valve protects against overload.
- Air exhaust muffler provides extra quiet operation.
- Air and oil filters protect system from environmental contaminants.
- Operates with ordinary shop air at 20-90 PSI input pressure.
