Vacuum Slot Chuck Configurable in Two Directions
Ibag North America offers the Witte modular vacuum slot chucks designed to provide expanded clamping surfaces to meet a wide range of application requirements.
Ibag North America offers the Witte modular vacuum slot chucks designed to provide expanded clamping surfaces to meet a wide range of application requirements. These modular slot chucks are available in sizes of 200 × 300, 300 × 400 and 400 × 600 mm. Connection elements that function as quick couplings simplify and speed up expansion, allowing users to configure the clamping surface or work area in two directions as needed. For example, one 200 × 300-mm chuck may be extended to 200 × 600 or 300 × 400 mm to suit more efficient surface usage for higher production capability.
Designed for small parts, these slot chucks are ideal for light milling and drilling applications, including engraving for parts larger than 25 × 25 mm.
Holding metal parts with magnets is migrating from surface grinding to broader application in general metalworking processes, especially milling. Advances in magnetic technology are causing many shops to re-evaluate how they hang on to workpieces. Here’s a look at how magnets may be a viable workholding solution for your shop.
Don't assume the standard chuck is the right workholding for every lathe application.
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.
