The company introduces its two-jaw power chuck, the Rota 2B, which is designed for turning centers and stationary applications.
According to the company, noteworthy features include a reduced weight and a low profile. The base jaw guides ensure clamping forces, while the stroke secures the workpiece during aggressive machining. The chuck comes standard with mounting features that accommodate irregular workpieces. Additionally, when combined with the Opus-B pancake cylinder, it is useful for stationary applications.
Of special interest are the seals and wipers, which assist in reducing contamination of the chuck body, aiding in grease retention. Clamping force ranges from 26 kN to 500 kN, with jaw strokes ranging from 10 mm to 18 mm per jaw.
