Kurt’s SeraLock Towers, along with its WedgeLock and MoveLock workholding modules, provide density, accuracy and flexibility to accommodate different part sizes and multiple parts.

SeraLock Towers make it possible to machine a group of dissimilar workpieces or a high density of a single part all in the same setup. The system employs reusable clamping components that can be mixed and matched to hold the required part sizes. This system of self-aligning modules enables the creation of the equivalent of a custom fixture with the ability to be reconfigured for changing part sizes.

Interlocking serrations on the tower base and the clamping device enable the SeraLock system’s serrated mounting surfaces to align and clamp accurately and quickly. WedgeLock and MoveLock modules have quick, repeatable accuracy and small strokes to minimize clamping time.

SeraLock Towers are available in four- and two-sided towers with a base that mounts to a horizontal machining center or an indexer for vertical machining center applications. An additional option for vertical machining centers is the SeraLock pallet, which mounts directly to the machine table or a subplate.
