Power chuck offers stable, precise machining

Power chucks have to mount parts in just a few seconds, clamp them reliably, accurately and stably, and then release them again reliably after machining.

It does not matter whether the task is machining rods and tubes, or flange-like workpieces, high clamping forces are usually required. According to Röhm, these objectives have been achieved with the company’s KFD-HS power chucks.
“We know the high demands that are placed on the work material in machining operations,” says Fabian Baur, product manager at Röhm. “Our power chucks are designed to meet these needs. The centrifugal forces that occur during machining are absorbed in such a way that they only have a minor effect on the clamping force.”
Indeed, the drop in clamping force is said to be very low even at extremely high speeds, which is assured by Röhm’s particular type of wedge-hook connection.
Especially when machining rod material, the KFD-HS is characterised not only by its high flexibility (due to the large passageway), but it also boosts efficiency thanks to high cycle rates, says the company.
“Economical manufacturing means automated manufacturing,” says Baur.
According to Röhm, there is great potential in the KFD-HS. Thanks to high clamping forces and high resilience, even the fiddliest clamping tasks can be solved economically.
“Precision machining, process stability when changing the workpiece, as well as the highest resilience in 24/7 operation are simply part of it,” says Baur.
Specifically, high rigidity is achieved through the screw connection of the chuck body and chuck flange. In such a way, chucks of this type offer optimum conditions for the precise machining of both shaft and flange-type workpieces.
