Hydraulic Chuck for Lathes

Dec. 3, 2018
Kaiser's hydraulic chuck only requires only 2 to 3 turns for both clamping and unclamping.

Hydraulic Chucks for Swiss Lathes use a single wrench to make for a quick and easy change of the cutting tools on a gang slide. To minimize machine downtime and provide operator safety, the Hydraulic Chucks use a simple hex wrench that requires only 2-3 turns for both clamping and unclamping. 


To help maintain good repeatability and ease of operability, once a hydro-chuck is centered, the runout will not vary, even if a cutting tool is changed repeatedly. Runout of fewer than 3 microns at 4 times diameter can be achieved.


High-precision cutting with Hydraulic Chucks is achieved on the automatic lathe with a clamping range of ø4-8 mm. They are long lasting, maintenance free and the rigidity is greatly improved by the short projection length and dual pressure points.


Hydraulic Chucks have a standard pipe thread for coolant through connection and are available for most Citizen and Star machines with 3/4 in or 22 mm straight shank.
