HDL CarvLock Towers Provide Precision Clamping of Multiple Parts

Kurt Workholding offers a complete line of high-density CarvLock workholding towers for precision machining with 8 or 12 clamping stations in both manual and hydraulic models. "Equipped with easily changeable jaws, these towers provide maximum set-up flexibility and fast changeover between jobs," said a company spokesperson.

Kurt's complete line of CarvLock tower system options allows manufacturers to configure one that fits their exact needs. They are ideal for use on mid-size and larger horizontal machining centers. Each tower station has either a 3" or 4" jaw opening and provides repeatable clamping to 0.0002" with a maximum clamping force of 5,870 to 7,460 lbs., depending on model.

Kurt's CarvLock towers feature self-adjusting holding blocks for clamping the same or dissimilar sized parts. Fast manual operation is enhanced with the adjustable pre-load feature that reduces handle turns for opening and closing clamping stations. "The Hydraulic CarvLock towers achieve the fastest part clamping by eliminating the need to manually clamp the piece part," said the spokesperson.

The towers are precision manufactured of ductile iron ensuring maximum strength, rigidity and long-term accuracy. The elevated column design makes clearing chips and coolant from the clamping area fast and easy. Additional features include jaw options for specific applications including: hard jaws, machinable aluminum and machinable ductile iron jaws plus aluminum fixture plates. For maximum flexibility, jaws are indexable 180°.
