Range of holding options for automated to manual clamping

Range of holding options for automated to manual clamping
The HDL CarvLock Towers from Kurt HDL decrease cycle time by maximising the machine work envelope with eight stations to 12 stations within each tower. This provides a high-density workholding platform for ganging dozens of parts depending on size. Eight station tower configurations can be selected from Kurt’s standard four inch and six inch base models.
