The Überchuck precision CNC milling chuck (formerly the Albrecht Power Chuck) from Albrecht uses a two-stage clamping mechanism to increase gripping torque, rigidity and damping. According to the company, these characteristics enable more efficient and aggressive cutting, increase tool life, offer easier and faster tool changes, and reduce downtime.

 
The milling chucks are available in three gripping ranges: 1/8" to 9/16", 1/8" to 3/4", and 3/4", to 1 1/4". All are coolant-ready and pressure rated to 1,400 psi. Each chuck is dynamically balanced for high-speed operation and said to run within 0.00012" TIR or better at 2.5 × diameter.

  • The Real Cost Of Runout

    A seemingly small amount of runout can still be too large for the tool. Reduce this runout, and tool life or productivity may dramatically increase.

  • The Humble Pull Stud

    I’ve said that the toolholder is the least appreciated element in many milling processes, but the pull stud (or retention knob) is perhaps the least appreciated component of the toolholder.

    Collet toolholders are too important to the machining process to use them incorrectly. Follow this simple advice.
