Press Release Summary:
Optimized for concentricity (≤3 Âµm), machining speed, and tool life in milling and drilling applications, FPC Mill/ Drill Chucks feature 1:16 worm gear and deliver 3 tons of traction force. Design and body provide 100% holding power for maximum rigidity, while collet-cone assembly absorbs nearly all vibration for maximum dampening. While 3xD tool length promotes accuracy, transferable torque maximizes process reliability. Clamping force prevents possibility of pull-out for optimal safety.

Emuge Introduces High Precision Milling/ Drilling Chucks
New FPC Mill/ Drill Chucks significantly increase machining speed and tool life.
WEST BOYLSTON, MA U.S.A. – Emuge Corp. (www.emuge.com), a leading manufacturer of taps, thread mills, drills, toolholders, clamping devices and other rotary cutting tools, in partnership with Albrecht Precision Chucks, has introduced high precision/ performance Emuge FPC Mill/ Drill Chucks that provide unprecedented rigidity, vibration dampening, concentricity, machining speed and tool life versus conventional chuck technologies for milling and drilling applications.
Featuring the world's only chuck with a 1:16 worm gear, Emuge FPC Chuck's patented design delivers three tons of traction force. The unique design and body provide 100% holding power for maximum rigidity, and the collet-cone assembly absorbs virtually all vibration for maximum dampening.
Unique features and advantages include:
• Extremely high transferable torque that provides maximum process reliability. Transferred torque on a tool shank diameter of 20mm is 400 Nm.
• Increased accuracy with a 3 x D tool length, concentricity is ≤ 3 µm to guarantee long tool life and quality work piece surface finishes.
• Chuck is mechanical drive-actuated with a hex wrench; a simple design that enables quick tool change in seconds.
• Special holder design reduces vibration that dramatically improves work piece surface finishes and provides exceptionally long tool life.
• For maximum safety, the strongest clamping force to prevent the possibility of pull-out.
FPC Chucks are the fastest on the market today. In a speed comparison with four chuck technologies, using a 20 mm end mill in the same material, the Emuge FPC Chuck enabled the feed rate to be increased by 30% with no loss in performance.
Emuge FPC Chucks are available in four shank styles (CAT, HSK-A, SK and BT) in 47 different sku's for a wide range of applications. A full range of high precision collets and accessories are also available for the FPC line. Emuge FPC Collets are available in three size ranges (FPC 14, FPC 20 and FPC 25) in over 35 different sku's, from 1/8" to 1/1/4" and in metric from 2 mm - 32 mm.
