Vise is commonly used industrial machine tor gripping work. It plays a major part in fabrication work and is frequently used. We propose a motor operated bench vise which can tighten up to hold the work piece (as well as loosen up) by just pressing the switch. It is a motorized vice which reduces our time and effort in its operation.The power screw mechanism is employed in this design to lower the efforts required. The Motor is coupled to lead screw of bench vise via universal joint. A control switch is used to control the direction of rotation of motor shaft as per the workers requirement.
