With IMTS 2012 slowly shifting into the rear view mirror, we will continue our quarterly focus on Positrol's standard product lines. While Positrol does offer complete, custom workholding solutions, they also have the best selection of standard components in the industry with over 20 standard product lines.
A great example of Positrol's standard product capabilities would be their Swivel Grip Chuck. Designed and built to last, this chuck will withstand the most demanding of production environments.
Completely sealed against chips, the Swivel Grip Chuck
has jaws that individually compensate. This makes the chuck ideal for OP10 work on castings/forgings or for out-of-round parts that most chucks will round-up when they are clamped.
Much more accurate than conventional chucks , the minimal pullback action controls length and parallelism.
All components are hardened and ground to extend the life of the system and part confirmation and/or thru spindle coolant are popular options.
Positrol maintains the highest level of quality with their workholding. Their engineering expertise is top in the industry and they have a solution for you that will increase your throughput and quality.
