Share Article

Zagar, Inc., a manufacturer and distributor of products to the metalcutting industry, has expanded its product offering with the addition of Arnold Workholding through an exclusive NAFTA importing agreement with Fresmark S.A., Spain.

Zagar Inc. has announced a new partnership with Fresmak, S.A. of Zarautz, Spain that establishes Zagar Inc. as the exclusive importer of Arnold Workholding High Pressure Vises in North America. The agreement will move Arnold Workholding from its existing operation in Morgan, Pennsylvania to Zagar Inc. in Cleveland.

According to Jim McGaffin, Director, Sales and Marketing for Zagar Inc., “These vises are precision tools, holding parts with a consistently higher gripping force and maximizing machine productivity by allowing for deeper cuts at higher feed rates without fear of part slippage or distortion.” With the Arnold Vise product line, Zagar sees potential for continued growth of its workholding business, comprised of products that hold and locate parts for machining on vertical and horizontal milling machines.

Compared to conventional vises, Arnold Vises are investment grade quality products that feature safe and easy clamping, repeatability, zero wear and maximum machine productivity. The Arnold Vises product line will be stocked and serviced at Zagar Inc, Cleveland and Dapra Corporation, Bloomfield, CT.

The Arnold Vise products will be part of the Zagar Workholding Group that manufactures collet fixtures, special collets and distributes indexers and locating systems. Mike Tolmer, The National Sales Manager for the Zagar Workholding Group, will be integrating the Arnold Vise products into existing Zagar distribution and assisting existing Arnold Vise distributors to grow their solutions-based sales. Also, Tolmer will be seeking new distribution to focus on workholding products. As Tolmer points out, “The Arnold vise products are ideal for part fixturing configurations as their air and hydraulic units offer repeatable clamping pressure and are designed to fit close to one another to maximize part capacity per setup.”

The Zagar Workholding Group is a member of the AMT Advanced Workholding Technology Group and will be displaying its full line at IMTS this September.

Improving American productivity for seventy-five years, Zagar Inc. manufactures and distributes a range of workholding solutions, multi-spindle drill and tap heads, feed units and robotic end effectors. The company’s expertise is machining both ferrous and non-ferrous materials for industries such as automotive, aerospace, electrical, medical, off-road construction equipment, hydraulic, pneumatic and high-production drilling and tapping.
