Jergens, Inc. is Honored to be a Two-Time Recipient of the NorthCoast 99 Award

Jergens, Inc. is proud to be recognized by ERC as one of 99 great Northeast Ohio workplaces for top talent in 2021. This is the second time our organization has received the NorthCoast 99 Award.
Adding Speed to Dovetail Workholding Setups

Dovetail workholding is unique and ideal for holding workpieces that require larger metal removal, and multiple machining passes and operations. The puzzle-piece connectivity provides maximum holding strength with minimum material contact. That means that more of the part is accessible, which is even more advantageous when addressing complex components within limited machining envelopes. All that’s required are a few simple passes with minimal metal removal and your workpiece is ready to grip for a multitude of operations.
The Incredible, Versatile Toggle Clamp

Toggle clamps have been in use for decades. Providing basic workholding functions, and untold numbers of unique applications, for manufacturers across virtually every industry, including science and medicine. These clever clamps have seen some upgrades along the way as well. Increases in holding forces, different sizes and styles, additional accessories and features – all to keep pace with growing demands for configurable workholding.

Jergens is AS9100 Rev D Certified. What Does This Mean?

The AS9100 series is the industry-recognized set of standards for quality assurance and risk management for organizations that work within the ASD sectors. These standards provide suppliers with requirements for creating and maintaining a comprehensive quality management system for providing safe and reliable products to the aerospace, space, and defense industries.
Repeatability Made Easy with Jergens 130mm Double-Acting Hydraulic Vise

Achieving consistent workholding pressure is an art form for the skilled operator, and it’s an important step to ensuring that parts are locked down securely and positioned exactly for the next operation. Mechanical vises leave the door open for a higher degree of variation, whereas hydraulic vises repeat with very high accuracy. Additionally, they are fast and easy to operate – both of which contribute to faster overall cycle times. Take for example Jergens 130mm double-acting hydraulic vise – it provides high holding forces, quick clamping and repeatability to improve speed and part tolerance. To handle the many options of CNC machining, this vise comes standard with multiple mounting patterns, different jaw options and easy access to plumbing and maintenance ports. 
New Positioning and Clamping Additions Expand Jergens OK-Vise® Multi-Rail System Capability

Many machining operations benefit from multiple part setups, right? Maximize machine uptime, capacity and capability. Size, shape and complexity of surfaces to be machined usually dictate what’s possible. So does the total machining envelope that the CNC will allow. Jergens has an answer to how to best position and clamp the highest number of parts while staying clear of tool paths and spindle movements – sound OK?
Jergens Inc. is Honored at The 2021 Evolution of Manufacturing Conference and Awards

We are very excited to be honored at this year’s 2021 Evolution of Manufacturing Conference and Awards!
Jergens Expands it's Zero Point Systems with New Pneumatic Subplates and Multi-Pull Stud Fixture Plates

If you’re machining multiple parts simultaneously on your CNCs with frequent changeover, you well know the importance of quick and accurate location. Shortened overall cycle times can mean the difference between profit and loss. Jergens Zero Point System provides this key advantage and has now been expanded to include new pneumatic subplates and multi-pull stud fixture plates to further optimize the choice for workholding.
