Kurt/NEMI has announced an automated vacuum work holding system for wood product manufacturing applications.
This system includes a full line of modular components for holding, positioning and repositioning unfinished wood parts in the automated CNC production of doors, cabinets, fine wood furniture and similar wood products.
The product features grid system tables in standard and custom made sizes that form the mounting system for a flexible work holding system.
Suitable for use on CNC routers, the product together with an integrated robot provides 3-axis capability in a moving gantry CNC router system. It is designed to work with a variety of single and multi-spindle setups for high volume part production.
Setups can be configured to handle any wood design and dimension on the grid system table. Using positioning pods, chucks and locating pins, these setups have the advantages of a dedicated fixture with flexibility for reconfiguring the components to handle various size parts and for use on other jobs.
