That is the large pin bar and punch which was used extensively in graphic arts work for all sorts of things. Pretty much not done these days.
For small vacuum frame work Kodak made the far better LP (Low Pin) register pin bar and punch system.
The LP miniature pin bar register is the set to have for vacuum frame use.
I have a set of these Cat 302 6994
Designed to work with film as small as 4x5".
