For years, the GRS® BenchMate® work-holding system for jewelers has streamlined bench operations. With the BenchMate Encore QCX, GRS raises the bar again. The Encore QCX systems are designed to help jewelers work even more quickly and effectively!
First question, what is the 'X' all about? The 'X' is for 'extra'; the QCX features a support arm that offers extra accessibility and extra adjustability.
The Encore QCX basic system includes:
• A sturdy work holder with quick-change capabilities that fits into an improved rotating system. The holder comes with the quick-change standard ring clamp insert.
- Double holder rings, one above and one below the support arm, allow you to fine-adjust the height of the holder in the support arm.
- Two adjustment knobs enable you to quickly and easily maneuver your work three-dimensionally to position it precisely where you need it.
- The quick-change mechanism inside the holder allows you to quickly remove the BenchMate® QC standard ring clamp fixture (included) and replace it with another (not included) in seconds.
- The new shape is contoured for a better grip and ergonomic comfort while working.
• An extra-robust support arm with a 90-degree bend that creates incredible clearance and access to the workpiece. The adjustment knobs are designed away from the holder to provide all the adjustment with nothing to impede full access to the work.
• The hand rest is designed to slide onto the back plate, not the support arm, so that you can position it either to the right or the left of the work holder, depending on the task you're doing.
The GRS® Encore QCX BenchMate® system stabilizes any jewelry work, speeds soldering and simplifies even the most detailed tasks. All-steel construction and Teflon® bearings provide lasting service. As always, you can:
• Work at the best height ergonomically; you’ll be more comfortable throughout the day.
• Securely hold even the most delicate parts.
• Move the BenchMate easily out of the way when you’re finished; it takes just three seconds and requires no tools!
