Gripper inserts and assemblies increase workholding force and decrease fixture wear. Installed in a fixture's locating surfaces, serrated grippers slightly penetrate workpieces for greater resistance to workpiece movement than friction alone. Flat-tip grippers extend fixture life by protecting contact surfacers. Grippers are available in hardened tool steel or durable carbide, as individual inserts, or integrated locating assemblies.
