A New Face To Parts Chucking
Mechanical face drivers offer an alternative to other types of traditional chucking methods. Using mechanical face drivers for turning applications often provides increased flexibility and lower cycle times. Face drivers turn both very small and very large workpieces, and they also allow interrupted and heavy cuts. The major benefit of a face driver is that it allows the workpiece to be completely turned from one end to the other in one operation.
