CarvLock® CTHD Manual Cluster Towers

Kurt® Workholding’s CarvLock® CTHD manual cluster towers are ideal for use with horizontal CNC machining centers and vertical CNC machining center with indexable tables. These eight-station vise towers provide reliable workpiece immobility, delivering up to 5,556 lbs. of clamping force at just 70 ft-lbs. of torque, and are specially designed to minimize cutter-induced vibration.
CarvLock® manual cluster towers are most compact, high density vise tower systems in the industry. The small footprint reduces CNC spindle travel, part to part, which maximizes throughout without sacrificing holding accuracy. Ductile iron construction ensures strength, rigidity, and long working life.
Sixteen CTHD models are available, with multiple jaw options, making it easy to find a manual cluster tower that fits your workholding requirements. Order the CarvLock® CTHD cluster tower you need, or contact Kurt Workholding for more information.
