The self-contained, pneumatic B80 power collet chuck does not require a lathe, grinder or rotary table to have a hydraulic system, rear actuator, restrictive draw-tube or air-feed tubes. Instead, the collet chuck is operated by an air cylinder integrated into the collet chuck body.
The device is especially useful for common toolroom lathes or flat-bed lathes, which typically don’t have hydraulic systems or other means to accommodate power chucks. The company’s integrated pneumatic cylinder power collet chuck can save money by converting the machine to a power collet chuck simply and easily, the company says.
Other models include 5C, 16C, B42 and B60 collets, which feature with high accuracy and a maximum speed of 5,000 rpm, the company says.
