Extended Life Chuck meets pipe threading demands.

January 23, 2015

Available in sizes from 470–1,000 mm with bore diameters from 185–560 mm, TB2 minimizes cycle times via exhaust system with max venting rate. Product life is extended via wear- and corrosion-resistant coating as well as sealed base jaws that eliminate chance of contamination. To reduce maintenance, lubrication system allows for accelerated and even lubrication of entire chuck through intelligent lubrication channel system. Several pressure and stroke monitoring features are standard. Read More

Intelligent Chucks enable part loading automation.

January 15, 2015

With table integration that lets robots pick and place fixtured workpieces into machine, ESA 120/70 automation chuck allows intelligent interface and communication with controller using standard Unilock knobs. Product checks for workpiece presence, proper orientation, and clamping and communicates back to controller when workpiece is in place and ready to be machined. Conversely, machine does no allow new cycle to start until new component is properly in place. Read More

Collet Chuck holds near-perfect runout.

January 12, 2015

Suitable for milling, drilling, reaming, and tapping, High-Precision Collet Chuck maintains runout accuracies of 0.0001 in. at 3 x D. Thick chuck walls and strong outer form add rigidity and minimize vibration, while sealed-by-design precision collets, ranging from 6–20 mm or 0.24–0.79 in., optimize coolant delivery. Chuck is available with Safe-Lock™ pull-out protection from Haimer, which prevents tool from spinning or being pulled out of holder altogether under extreme machining conditions. Read More

Flexible Manual Chuck maximizes milling/turning application field.

July 25, 2014

Expanding workpiece machining range on milling/turning machines, ROTA-S flex can be assembled on machine table and by using optimized jaw quick-change system; retrofitting can be accomplished within seconds. Extended guideways can be disassembled to promote workpiece accessibility, and height leaves enough space for workpiece and tools. While lubrication system ensures permanently high clamping forces, dirt seals prevent chips and dust from entering chuck. Read More
