MNG mini – small zero point clamping system that delivers maxi performance
Workpiece clamping in the smaller dimension range​

Machine reference points are indispensable when it comes to highly precise machining. Zero point clamping systems, which are used both to clamp as well as to position the workpiece, are established solutions for this. With the MNG mini, CERATIZIT is launching the little brother of the tried-and-tested MNG mechanical zero point clamping system – a stand-out product thanks to its weight-optimised consoles, pyramids and clamping towers with an integrated zero point clamping system for small clamping devices. These vices can be quickly and easily clamped manually using the four clamping bolts to increase machine runtimes while also reducing setup times.


Efficient and precise machining of small workpieces with our MNG mini zero point clamping system: it reduces non-productive time to a minimum, because changing vices is much quicker and easier.

Advantages / benefits of the MNG mini zero point clamping system

  1. Integrated zero point clamping system

Modular system for unlimited expansion possibilities

Our zero point clamping system is extremely versatile and can be adapted to different machine types and applications. The MNG mini offers you the flexibility to meet all your specific requirements for small workpieces. ​

At the same time, it is compatible with the other MNG and PNG systems from CERATIZIT, and thanks to the 52 mm clamping bolt spacing, also with those from other manufacturers.

Clamping technology as an effective boost to your productivity

The requirements placed on state-of-the-art workpiece clamping technology read a bit like a wish list! The clamping device should clamp the workpiece in place as vibration-free as possible without deforming it. The setup should allow for high repeatability, be quick and easy to use, versatile, easy to replace and ideally reasonably priced.

Although these features may sound incompatible at first, comprehensive mechanical and pneumatic zero point clamping systems like the MNG and PNG systems from CERATIZIT bring them together in one easy-to-use device. The extensive clamping device portfolio has something to offer to meet every need, allowing you to maintain maximum flexibility and process a wide variety of orders in no time at all!

Faster setup thanks to fixed zero point

Mechanical zero point clamping systems such as the MNG mini deliver the perfect assistance where otherwise tedious set-up processes would jeopardise efficiency. Non-productive time is reduced to a minimum, because the zero point clamping system makes it much quicker and easier to change vices: simply release the screw, tighten the screw and you're ready to go! This guarantees enhanced repeatability and minimises error sources.  

Time savings of +30%

The benefits of considering workpiece handling at an early stage will be felt immediately: productivity can be increased by at least 30 percent when clamping and retooling the vices.

Optimising machine utilisation

A half-full machine is less economical than a full one, so why not clamp several workpieces at the same time? This is one of the easiest tasks with our zero point clamping systems! Plus, it helps you to increase your productivity and maximise the utilisation of your machines by seamlessly moving from one workpiece to the next. This rationalises your workflow and minimises bottlenecks. Reduced setup times and fewer rejects mean optimised use of your resources and ultimately a reduction in overall operating costs.
