MANUAL COLLET CHUCKS, POWER COLLET CHUCKS, AND
MULTIPLE POSITION COLLET CHUCKS
Standard Pull Back Collet
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, Controlled Length
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.
Multiple Position Collet
These collet chucks offer multiple clamping positions in
one fixture. They are available in most standard collet
configurations in pull back or push type actuating
features. Available in most standard collet
configurations in manual or 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
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 the choices below
