o Jaw strokes are 4mm, 5mm and 10mm across the four variants and the low height (from 25mm to 40mm across the range) maximizes the machine's Z axis.
o MultiChuck MMY can be provided as standard in a range of chuck sizes (80, 100, 125, 150mm) and in a range of base dimensions that fit all slotted machine tables.
o Available for external or internal clamping - satisfies both first and second operations in the same machining cycle. Provides continuous output of finished components.
