Toolholder Segments (CAT40 20Tool)


HAAS VF Series CNC parts – Selling here is the individual unit replacement Tool Holder “SEGMENT” for the CMI “Segmented” CAT40 Tool Holder Carousel Disk.

The Tool Holder “SEGMENT” part is designed and manufactured to be the heart of the CMI “Segmented” CAT40 Tool Holder Carousel Disk. This product fully retrofits and upgrades the CMI “Segmented” CAT40 Tool Holder Carousel Disk.

Constructed by Clarklake Machine, Inc. a 40 year old Michigan family machine shop out of 6061-T6-6511 solid aluminum for the material's flexibility, strength and optimal weight requirements to survive a shock-impact machine crash. We manufacture several models of replacement Tool holder Carousels that are innovation products for the HAAS VF Series an Min Mill machines including the CAT40, 20 Tool Holder Carousel, the BT40, 20 Tool Holder Carousel and the CAT40, 10 Tool Holder Umbrella Carousel, all found on separate Ebay sites.

On the one hand, the OEM’s Tool Changer Carousels made from cast aluminum is fine on its own one single piece design, excepts it is known to develop micro-fractures and web like cracks after an initial shock-impact crash turning it into instant scrap, the OEM’s only alternative is for the customer to purchase another, and await the next crash.

On the other hand the CMI “Segmented” CAT40, 20 Tool Holder Changer Carousel Disk is fully repairable after a shock-impact machine crash. Depending on the type of machine, our design configures the required number of tool holder segments side by side attached to a base plate. After a subsequent machine crash, merely replace the damaged bent or distorted individual tool holder segment. Our customer’s report that because our Segments do not break but instead become bent the Tool Holder Carousel Disk continues to fully function. Our customer’s tell us they remedied the damaged tool holder by simply and quickly re-programming to another unused tool holder and went back immediately to making parts as if a crash never took place. Then in a time of their choosing, shut the machine down and remove the damaged tool holder installing a new SEGMENT to take its place.

Since mid-2009 we have sold the segmented design Tool Holder Carousel 144 times to satisfied and happy customers in 33 States, Mexico, Canada and the State of Israel. During this same period, we have sold 31 segments to support those initial sales. This means that those customers saved themselves thousands of dollars in not having to purchase the OEM’s product again, but instead purchased a replacement segment for $39.99. These customers were able to keep their existing CMI “Segmented” Tool Holder Carousel Disk and use those maintenance & labor dollars to make profit and not expense.

Clarklake Machine, Inc. feels a real sense of civic pride in being honored to help other machine shops control their costs by doing our part to grow our nation's economy and create jobs!
