Emuge Corp., in partnership with Albrecht Precision Chucks, has introduced high precision/performance FPC mill/drill chucks that provide unprecedented rigidity, vibration dampening, concentricity, machining speed and tool life versus conventional chuck technologies for milling and drilling applications, the company says.

Featuring a chuck with a 1:16 worm gear, the FPC chuck's design delivers three tons of traction force. The unique design and body provide 100-percent holding power for maximum rigidity, and the collet-cone assembly absorbs virtually all vibration for maximum dampening.

Unique features and advantages include high transferable torque that provides maximum process reliability (transferred torque on a tool shank diameter of 20 mm is 400 Nm); increased accuracy with a 3 x D tool length, concentricity is ≤ 3 microns to guarantee long tool life and quality workpiece surface finishes; chuck is mechanical drive-actuated with a hex wrench; a simple design that enables quick tool change in seconds; special holder design reduces vibration that improves workpiece surface finishes and provides exceptionally long tool life; and for maximum safety, the strongest clamping force to prevent the possibility of pull-out.

In a speed comparison with four chuck technologies, using a 20-mm end mill in the same material, the FPC chuck enabled the feed rate to be increased by 30 percent with no loss in performance.

The chucks are available in four shank styles (CAT, HSK-A, SK and BT) in 47 different skus for a range of applications. A range of high precision collets and accessories are also available for the FPC line.

FPC collets are available in three size ranges (FPC 14, FPC 20 and FPC 25) in more than 35 different SKUs, from 1/8" to 1/1/4" and in metric from 2 mm to 32 mm.
