Self Aligning stationary seat makes easier conversion of gland packed pumps to mechanical seal as there is no need to machine the pump casing perpendicular to the shaft. It can replace most of the existing stationary seats without any modifications. It has uniform face load regardless of the degree of misalignment of the gland with respect to the shaft. Even face wear regardless of the type or make of mechanical seal used against it. It is free from distortions due to over-tighting of gland.
Self-centering vice allows the workpiece to be set at any desired compound angle, with all degrees of freedom. The low height of the vice makes it an ideal clamping tool for even the most complicated grinding job. The vice has a fixed horizontal axis, which allows the work-piece to be rotated at any angle along it. The swivel base allows the rotation of the work-piece along the vertical axis and the third angular slide allows any setting in the 3D plane. Vice body is made from close-grained high tensile cast iron.
