Lathe setups and changeovers
- July 28, 2021
There are several enhancements made to the THW3 including:
Fully sealed, this patented design results in lower lubricant consumption that reduces grease cost, eliminates coolant contamination, and reduces chuck maintenance costs.
The THW3 has a lower profile for less tool interference. Material has been removed from the chuck, which results in a lightened load without impeding integrity. Due to the lighter weight of the THW3, quicker acceleration and deceleration speeds equate to faster cycle times.
The double-guided piston of the THW3 is more robust, holding higher tolerance, resulting in the repeat accuracy for jaw change and part changes.
VersaFlex quick jaw change technology is ideal for small to mid-size batch production. No re-boring of the chuck jaws ensures maximum versatility and flexibility while minimizing set up time.
