Work Holding Devices in Fitting:

1.Work Bench:

  • It is used to hold various components on its surface.
  • It is also gives the support to human while performing various operations.

2.Bench Vice:

  • Bench Vice is a holding tool which is used to hold the specimen or the work piece between the two jaws.
  • The Parts of Bench Vice are

a.Jaws

      – Fixed Jaw

      – Movable Jaw

b.Body

c.Handle

Parts of Bench Vice-Explanation:

1.Jaws:

The Jaws are used to hold the work piece by rotating the handle.In that,one jaw is fixed and the other is movable.

2.Body:

All the parts like handle,jaws etc.are connected to the body of bench vice.

3.Handle:

  If the handle is rotated in CW direction,then the work piece is fixed between two jaws.

  If the handle is rotated in CCW direction,then the work piece is loosened from the jaws.
