The Witte Ice-Vice Freeze Chuck is an ideal technology for clamping small or intricate workpieces accurately, but without inducing stresses in the parts. Parts are clamped by freezing a thin film of water to provide the bond between the part materials and chuck surface. Accuracy of +/- 3 microns is possible, with rapid clamping times. Materials that are very small and delicate can be milled, drilled or polished.
 
Witte Ice-Vice Freeze systems are suited for R&D laboratories, as well as the production of large quantities of parts. Systems include small, compressed air operated freeze chucks and Freon based chilling units for large production systems. To improve production time, pallet systems are also possible. Witte Ice-Vice Freeze chuck systems are used for electronics, medical, ceramics, optics and glass.
