Find the definition, types and advantages of both CNC collets and chucks for workholding as well as the best applications for each, in this article.
SMW Autoblok’s 3-jaw pull-down chucks are fully sealed, featuring high accuracy and heavy-duty gripping for metal cutting applications.
Mini clamping device changeover system requires less tightening torque to speed up assembly and reduce changeover times.
ZeroAct can simultaneously clamp three units in place, thereby giving users tremendous flexibility in machining operations, while also saving time and increasing operator safety.
Whipple Superchargers uses unique form tools and dead-length-collet workholding for its B-axis turn-mill enabling it to create more accurate rotors for its brand of engine power-adders.
Clamping discs for its flange chucks and flange mandrels feature true running accuracies of just 10 microns, and offer greater loading clearance and longer operating life.
Pressure-Lok air chuck is charged with air by a special handle and holds air pressure for over two weeks.
Chuck jaw has a very long compensation stroke, giving it increased flexibility for clampable workpiece geometries and a wide variety of applications.
The pyramids feature a 30-degree mounting surface to ensure maximum clearance for spindle and cutting tool paths, resulting in more machining per setup.
Each jaw is independently controlled and monitored by an individual electromechanical drive, which enables many clamping functions — all within one fully automated chuck.
SMW’s HFKS-2G Power Chuck delivers twice the grip force than standard 3-Jaw chucks.
Workholding for milling operations commonly involves vises that clamp with movable jaws. This technology has continued to progress to match the requirements of five-axis workholding.
Automation can bring speed and consistency to many different manufacturing operations. When it can be added with relatively minimal expense, the move seems even more compelling.
Increasingly, new machine tools are being developed that defy existing classification code by virtue of their multi-tasking capabilities.
From accounting and order tracking to scheduling and inventory management, this workholding equipment supplier is only beginning to realize the full benefits of its ERP system.
The 2-Jaw module delivers small alternative to large centric vice.
Big Kaiser’s UniLock Stabilizer 50 system can easily adjust to new parts – making machining more efficient and cost-effective.
Nuts convert standard chucks into quick-change chucks, reducing jaw change time.
Two models enable efficient changes in spindle machines.
Centco4 self-centering and compensating chuck can clamp virtually any type or shape of geometric part.
Garant Xtric centering vice is provided with center jaw, gripper mounting holes and Endutec automation interface.
