Model DPH1000W - Two Is Better Than One!

Press release date: Apr 22, 2014

Island Park, NY - Picture illustrates one Northfield DPH1000W, 10-inch diaphragm chuck capable of locating and clamping two work pieces with different location datum. Due to production requirements, end user requested quick and accurate change over between the work piece numbers. The chuck was manufactured with special stepped top jaws that could locate and clamp both work pieces without changeover. For end to end location difference between the work pieces, the chuck was manufactured with a master axial locator incorporating a "button" style stop (illustrated in orange) used for changeover. With replacement of only the button stop, the changeover was quick, accurate and repeatable.
