Coventry-based Hyfore Workholding
has introduced its latest line of high-quality collet chucks which caters for all machine types and applications and complements its extensive workholding and clamping portfolio.
In the collet chuck range is the NR, NR-WD, C-H, C, HC, HEC and NR line of precision collet chucks, high-speed precision collet chucks, power milling chucks and hydraulic chucks. The NR and NR-WD Series of high-precision collet chucks are available for tool shanks from 3 to 16mm diameter with BT30, BT40 and BT50 variants available with a length from the spindle taper to the tool that ranges from 60 to 200mm depending upon the size and variant selected. The NR is also available with a high-speed HSK variant that can work on machine tools with a HSK40A, HSK50A or a HSK63A spindle taper.
Alongside the NR range is the C and C-H Series of power milling chucks. The C-Type precision power milling chuck and the C-H high-speed variant are available in BT30, BT40 and BT50 variants that can clamp tool shanks up to 20mm diameter with an external chuck diameter from 50 to 69mm depending upon the chosen variant.
This compact chuck design is further enhanced by a distance from the spindle taper to the tool of 85 to 165mm depending upon the chosen variant. This compact design extends accessibility to the component while the special dust-proof design can extend tool life and longevity by more than 50%. Both the C and C-H variants are also available for HSK40A, HSK50A or a HSK63A spindle taper machine tools. Extended reach, stability and clearance
For high-speed precision machining with light-duty cutting, Hyfore is introducing the HC high-speed precision collet chucks. Suitable for clamping tool shanks from 3 to 16mm diameter and available in BT30, BT40 and BT50 variants, the HC Series is offered with five different styles that demonstrate a range of capabilities from extended reach, stability and clearance – giving your high-speed machining requirements all the tool holding options to cater for your components.
The HSK40A, HSK50A and HSK63A spindle taper variants can support tool shanks from 3 to 10mm. Complementing the HC is the HEC range of hydraulic collet chucks. The BT30 variant is available in a complete range of diameters from 6 to 20mm with the BT40 and BT50 variants catering for shank diameters up to 32mm. While the HC range is available with HSK40A, HSK50A and HSK63A spindle taper variants, the HEC hydraulic variant is currently only available in HSK63A format.
