Power chucks and cylinders

Power chucks can be mounted on the CNC as well as multifunction turning-milling centres. The main advantage of these chucks is a significantly shorter time of clamping and unclamping of the workpiece, while maintaining constant clamping parameters and high gripping forces obtained with minimum effort. The chucks are especially applicable in processes, where frequent clamping and unclamping of the workpiece is required. The chucks can work either with pneumatic, hydraulic and electric actuators.
