Emuge Slim Line chucks with FPC

Emuge has expanded its line of FPC milling and drilling chucks to include Slim Line models that are designed to enhance five-axis machining productivity and versatility. Available in the 1/8" to 9/16" (2 to 14 mm) size range (FPC14), the slim design with tapered shape enables easier access to the work, especially in confined areas and for challenging angles, the company says.

The FPC is said to be the only chuck with a 1:16 worm gear, providing some three tons of traction force. The collet-cone assembly is designed to absorb virtually all vibration.

High transferable torque provides maximum process reliability, according to the company. Transferred torque on a tool shank diameter of 20 mm, for example, is 400 Nm. The 3×D tool length provides increased accuracy. Concentricity of ≤3 microns lengthens tool life and contributes to workpiece surface finish. The chuck is actuated with a mechanical drive using a hex wrench. The company says that the tool’s simple design enables tool changes in seconds.
