COLLET CHUCKS TYPES
Standard Pull Back Collet Chucks
These collet chucks actuate the collet by pulling the collet back
into a tapered spindle.
As the collet is pulled back, the tapered spindle causes the collet
to close down to clamp the work part. In this type of collet chuck there is no work part
length control. If the workpart size changes, the linear location of the part will change.
Available most popular collet
configurations in manual and power actuated models.
Push type, True Length Collet Chucks
These collet chucks maintain an accurate non-changing collet
position. If the work part outside diameter varies, there will be
no linear variation in the work part. A diameter size variation
adaptation feature automatically controls the work part length even
if work part diameter varies. The collet is actuated by moving the
collet or a sleeve forward to actuate the collet. Available in most
standard collet configurations in manual and power actuated models.
These precision collet chucks may
be mounted directly to American Standard (A4, A5, A6, A8) and
Camlock (D4, D5, D6, D8) style spindles or special fixtures. Collet
chucks are also frequently used on cylindrical grinders, rotary
tables, and many other machines.
Some collet chucks are available for other types of machines where a
stationary non-moving situation is required. There are manually
actuated, air actuated, and hydraulic actuated models. Just browse
