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.

    A tooling system consisting of interchangeable cutting units and standardized locking units has a lot to offer users of CNC machines, whether for turning, milling, or both on a turn mill. These guidelines will help you think clearly about how modular, quick-change tooling can benefit your shop.

  • 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.
