Pratt Burnerd further simplifies one-hit machining with the new 3+1 Gripfast Combination Power Chuck
In keeping with their reputation for developing innovative workholding systems, Pratt Burnerd International have launched an all NEW 3+1 version of their highly successful Gripfast Combination Power Chuck.
Following on from the recent launch of the 5 jaw system at MACH 2016, developed for handling thin walled components, the NEW 3+1 Gripfast combination power chuck now allows for the standard 3 jaw chuck configuration to effortlessly convert to a 2 jaw system in a matter of seconds, accommodating the handling of square or irregular shaped components instantly – giving customers even more levels of flexibility in one chucking system than ever before.
Pratt Burnerd not only supply standard chucking products and accessories, but with their vast product knowledge and unrivalled manufacturing expertise, gained over 150 years – Pratt Burnerd come into their own through their highly specialised chucking solutions and the NEW 3+1 Gripfast Chuck is yet another great example of this experience.
The 3+1 Gripfast combination power chuck can be supplied in sizes from 300mm to 500mm, but larger versions with special modifications to suit the application can be made on request.
This 3+1 Gripfast chuck is already installed successfully on machines at existing Pratt Burnerd customer facilities and is already proving essential for carrying out three operations in one hit, cutting down massively on production set-up times on highly complex components.
The well proven 3 Jaw Gripfast combination power chuck is unique in providing CNC lathe customers with a chuck, a collet chuck and a mandrel chuck, all combined in the one unit. It’s versatility comes into its own when integrated onto production CNC turning centres for small and medium batch production, enabling CNC lathe operators to increase productivity by minimising non-machining time, whilst still maintaining market leading levels of repeatability.
All these chucks carry the world famous Pratt Burnerd brand name, which remains synonymous with high quality, value for money, productive and highly innovative workholding products.
