Röhm Products of America’s Duro-A RC power chuck reduces setup times because of its quick jaw-change system that enables the jaws to be adjusted, reversed or swapped out in 50 seconds. According to the company, traditional power chucks cannot keep up with the latest spindle rotational speeds and acceleration/deceleration rates because of the heavy weight and loss of dynamic clamping force. Thus, this power chuck’s billet steel body has a lightweight design and an overall height that is reduced by 14 percent, according to the company. This is said to boast centrifugal force compensation that enables fast speeds and feeds, as well as power consumption savings of as much as 17 percent. The chuck’s interchangeable back plate is said to further ensure convenient adaptability to fit a range of lathe spindles.
