Royal Products will exhibit its new Quick-Grip CNC collet chucks for workholding applications at IMTS on 13-18 September.

According to the company, which will be found in Booth W-1622, its new CNC collet chucks offer a number of advantages over traditional collet chuck designs.

A special installation tool compresses the rear end of the collet so that it can be inserted.

Upon expansion, the collet locks into place via a hook-and-groove arrangement.

Another major advantage offered by the Quick-Grip system is the 1/16in gripping range of the collets.

This wide range is possible because each segment of a Quick-Grip collet is completely separated from the other segments by a vulcanised rubber spacer.

This design enables the parallel gripping of the workpiece over the entire closing range, providing an advantage over spring-type collets.

The installation tool incorporates steel pins that align with drilled holes on the collet face.

When these pins engage the face holes and when the trigger on the tool is actuated, the collet becomes temporarily compressed.

In its compressed state, the collet can then be inserted into the collet chuck, where the hooks on the rear of the collet segments become axially aligned with a retaining groove in the chuck.

Releasing the installation tool allows the collet to spring open, seating the hooks in the groove and drawing the matching ID/OD tapers into full, positive contact.

At this point, the 10-second collet change is complete.

Quick-Grip collet chucks have a full collapse range of 0.062in (1.6mm).

In addition, these collet chucks tend to be shorter than their spring-type counterparts.

Quick-Grip collet chucks are available in capacities from 1-5/8in up to 3-1/8in and are in stock for immediate delivery.
