New workholding systems for horizontal machining

New towers have been introduced by Roemheld UK for clamping multiple workpieces on the table or pallet of horizontal machining centres.
 TS towers feature four vertical faces for holding 4, 8 or 16 parts, while TS TriStar versions have three faces for securing 3, 6 or 12 parts. The latter models have the advantage of allowing improved spindle access for machining components from the sides. All employ a patented guidance and sealing system without the need for sheet metal covers or plastic wipers and the monobloc design provides high stability and accuracy.
