The Manok is, according to the company, a small but powerful new stationary chuck. It is a manually actuated stationary chuck that is said to offer holding power while eliminating time-consuming setups and changeover, characteristics unusual in a manual clamping device.
The company says the chuck rigid and precise, and that it eliminates cumbersome changeovers by allowing the use of standard clamping heads. At least 12 head designs are available. According to the company, all offer quick changeover using either the company's EasyGrip manual changing device or the pneumatic version. An optional front endstop is available. The lengthstop is fastened directly onto the machine tool table.
