Emuge Corp. has expanded its line of FPC milling and drilling chucks to include Slim Line models that are designed to improve five-axis machining productivity and versatility. Available in the 1/8" to 9/16" (2 mm–14 mm) size range (FPC14), the compact, slim design with tapered shape enables easier access to the work, especially in confined areas and for challenging angles, the company says.

Emuge says its chucks provide improved rigidity, vibration dampening, concentricity, machining speed and tool life versus conventional chuck technologies for milling and drilling applications.

Features include:

  • High transferable torque. Transferred torque on a tool shank diameter of 20 mm is 400 Nm
  • Increased accuracy with a 3 × D tool length. Concentricity is 3 microns, which is said to provide long tool life and quality workpiece surface finishes.   
  • Chuck is mechanical drive-actuated with a hex wrench
  • Strong clamping-force to prevent the possibility of pull-out

FPC chucks can enable feed rates to increase by 30% with no loss in performance, according to Emuge. FPC chucks are available in five shank styles (CAT, HSK-A, SK, BT and PSC) in 68 different SKUs for a variety of applications.
