Manual lathe chuck


SCHUNK has developed the highly flexible manual chuck ROTA-S flex particularly for users, who want to machine a possibly wide workpiece range on milling/turning machines. Compared to conventional lathe chucks used for large clamping diameters, the weight with ROTA-S flex drops down to 60%. At an identical table load, much heavier workpieces can be machined, and due to the low height enough space remains for the workpiece and the tools. For machining smaller workpieces the extended guideways can be easily disassem-bled, so that the workpiece accessibility is considerably improved compared to a clamping application with conventional large chucks. A special lubrication system ensures permanently high clamping forces of both variants. The ROTA-S flex can be easily assembled on a machine table, and by using the optimised jaw quick-change system, retrofitting can be done within seconds.
