Clamp Virtually Any Workpiece Geometry

SMW Autoblok’s versatile four-in-one Centco4 2+2 self-centering and compensating chuck minimizes downtime by reducing changeouts and minimizes waste by reducing part deformation.

SMW Autoblok’s Centco4 2+2 self-centering and compensating chuck is perfect for aerospace and automotive companies looking for one standard chuck to clamp any part geometry.

The versatile four-in-one Centco4 2+2 self-centering and compensating chuck from SMW Autoblok (Wheeling, IL) securely and efficiently clamps virtually any part shape, whether it’s round, cubic, angular, and irregular.

The 4-jaw chuck provides four times less deformation compared to 3-jaw clamping and can be used on all industry-specific machine tools. The ability to handle virtually any part shape means fewer chuck changeouts and vastly reduced downtime. Diverse manual and hydraulic applications include turning, milling, inspection, and finishing operations.

Two independent self-centering and compensating jaws and single-wedge actuation eliminate the need for a dual-piston cylinder. The chuck’s drive moves toward or apart on two parallel axes and needs only one standard-stroke single-piston cylinder for actuation. This allows for independent, self-centering clamping via both axes.

Centrifugal force compensation allows for maximum rotational speeds with up to 210 kn of gripping force. Optimized lubrication system saves time and money on maintenance and repairs.

Available in manual and power models. Three sizes are available in the power version, including 210-52, 260-72, 315-92, and 400-112. A variety of Synchron Machine Tools high-precision jaws are offered with a 1/16th x 90° interface.
