Precision power chucks

Description

With Triton®, SwissChuck AG has introduced a new, modular power chuck range, which specifically caters to the needs of high-end applications such as turning, hard turning and grinding. Precision manufacturing, together with components of high-quality materials, guarantee a radial run-out of less than 5 µm. The precision interfaces between base jaws and the top jaws ensure a fast changeover of the accessory parts and guarantee constant chucking repeatability, which eliminates subsequent turning or regrinding of the top jaws. The extended Version, Triton® PLUS, additionally features centrifugal force compensation, and thus guarantees constant chucking force at high RPM, specifically when dealing with hard turning.

Decisive advantages of Triton® in comparison with conventional chucking system are its hermetical sealing and that it offers a reliable precision within a few microns (µm). This precision in terms of chucking repeatability and the low run-out is the pre­requisite for using this chuck for grinding processes. The hermetic seal not only protects against the ingress of dirt and cutting fluids but also guarantees a long service life.
