Quick-Grip CNC collet chucks from Royal Products are said to boost productivity by reducing collet change-over time to 10 sec. These chucks feature collets that have a gripping range of 1/16", enabling them to accommodate large variations in workpiece diameters.

A parallel grip keeps the full length of each collet segment in constant contact with the workpiece, producing maximum holding force. Their short lengths maximize a lathe’s Z-axis capacity and contribute to accuracies of 0.0002" TIR.

Available in both Pullback and Accu-Length styles, these chucks are designed to be easy to install. They incorporate Royal Products’ Bolt & Go Mounting Advantage, which ensures a consistent, near-perfect fit without the need for any adjustment, the company says.

  • A Study Of The Steady Rest

    When the length and stiffness of a workpiece make it difficult to machine without distorting or deflecting the part, many manufacturers turn to the steady rest as a workpiece support device. This is especially true for long axles, shafts and similar parts used in automotive or heavy equipment applications, and in oil drilling components. The most common application is to support a workpiece during turning or milling and, increasingly, during secondary operations such as ID drilling, boring and producing end face bolthole patterns.

  • Pins: The Alternative To Parallels

    These vise jaws use protruding, mechanical pins to repeatedly support workpieces either horizontally or at angles. They are said to allow quicker setups than conventional parallels.
