Microcentric's Alloy Collet Chuck is a Low-Maintenance Machining Option

The collet chuck features a pullback design with a floating collet seat and incorporates a mounting in the ID of the chuck body for centers or other types of locators. The floating collet seat design, with the vulcanized quick-change collets, enables the collet to compensate up to 1.5 mm.

Microcentric’s quick change compensating collet chuck is suited for applications where shafts are machined between centers. It features a pullback design with a floating collet seat and incorporates a mounting in the ID of the chuck body for centers or other types of locators. The floating collet seat design, with the vulcanized quick-change collets, enables the collet to compensate up to 1.5 mm.

The floating collet seat is sealed and the chuck is lubricated for life, reducing maintenance requirements. The chuck’s compact OD and short overall length compared with conventional compensating chucks provides greater rigidity and tool clearance, Microcentric says.

All components are made from hardened, precision-ground alloy steel. The chuck generates a maximum clamping force of 84 kN (18,884 lbs) and is rated for spindle speeds up to 6,000 rpm.
