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.

How to Pull Off Tough Machining Jobs Without Pulling Out

By using special drive keys in the tool holder that perfectly match the spiral-shaped grooves on the cutting tool shank to create frictional clamping forces and a positive locking form-fit, the Safe-Lock system from Haimer effectively prevents the cutting tool from pulling out of the tool holder, increases the productivity through faster permissible speeds, and increases tool life.
