Northfield Precision Instrument offers the model 450 custom-designed air chucks to improve machine efficiency. A set of four chucks with special top tooling can be mounted on a pallet that installs on a machine bed. The machine’s pick-and-place arm picks up the parts after they are finished in the front two chucks and transfers them to the rear two chucks for finishing. All hosing is routed under the plate for actuation of the chuck’s jaws.
 

The company offers air chucks for lathes, boring machines, grinders and VMCs. Models include through-hole, high-speed and quick-change. Chucks are available in SAE or metric, in sizes ranging from 3" to 18" (76 to 457 mm). Accuracy ranges from 0.001" to 0.00001" (0.254 m).
