30 April 2020
Wheeling, IL – SMW Autoblok, a world leader in the design and manufacture of rotating chucks, stationary workholding, tooling and custom engineered solutions for the machine tool industry, introduces the innovative CCS (chuck switching system).
Providing excellent repeatability that is guaranteed within 10 microns, the CCS allows chucks and other workholding to be changed in under three minutes on new or existing lathes–saving time and increasing operator productivity. A standard adapter system, with a patented jacking system provides automatic push off and easy mounting to all types of traditional or custom workholding including 2-jaw chucks, 3-jaw chucks, collet chucks, mandrels, and fixtures, among others.
With an easy turn of a key, quickly connect workholding devices to the machine spindle and draw tube of the actuating cylinder. This guarantees operator safety in addition to minimizing machine downtime. A large through hole and a visual safety control of the locking status completes the versatility of the CCS chuck switching system.
