Carr Lock System

September 13,2012

The new Carr Lock System from Carr Lane Mfg. Co. allows accurately locating and clamping at the same time, with just the twist of a hex wrench, for mounting quick-change tooling on a subplate.

The new system, which consists of a clamp, a liner bushing and a receiver bushing, is exclusively made in the USA. Carr Lock offers complete interchangeability with all components of the Ball Lock Mounting System previously offered by Carr Lane, but at a lower price.

Available from stock, Carr Lock can be ordered alone or in kits combined with mounting plates.

    Cylindrical sleeve, typically made from high-grade tool steel, inserted into a jig fixture to guide cutting tools. There are three main types: renewable, used in liners that in turn are installed in the jig; press-fit, installed directly in the jig for short production runs; and liner (or master), installed permanently in a jig to receive renewable bushing.
