Chucks

Chucks comprise a category of universal holding devices used in turning applications, capable of interior diameter or outer diameter (ID or OD) clamping. Chucks feature two to eight jaws, catered to fit the shape of the workpiece. Lathe chucks can be mounted vertically, horizontally, or inverted, and are operated either manually, electrically, hydraulically, or pneumatically. Along with standard jawed chucks, magnetic, electrostatic, and vacuum chucks also exist for custom applications.
