A Swiss clamp system is used with machine tools in the manufacture of orthopedic instruments and components, including bone screws and implants. The EZR Swiss Clamp System ensures increased torque by achieving proper settings and enables fast, positive ER collet clamping. It eliminates wrench slippage and prevents the loss of clamping nuts in the machine sump-chin bin. Operators’ hands are kept clear of the sharp tools in the tooling zone. The system also prevents accidental breakage of ID microtooling. The Swiss clamp nuts can be tightened using standard box wrenches or a 3/8 -in. drive ratchet wrench with the EZR wrench adaptor or the EZR torque adaptor. Both adaptors engage and lock to the clamping nut with a specialized cam system on the face, delivering positive torque to the nut.
