Quick Change Collet Chuck Series

DHP pull-back quick change collet chucks

DHF fixed length quick change collet chucks

Kitagawa-NorthTech, Inc. will introduce its quick change collet chucks series. The DHP series is designed for first operation machining and the DHF is more suited for first and second machining operations.

The DHP pull back series is suitable for collets that have a +/- 0.5 mm gripping range. This allows the DHP collet chuck to handle rough and unfinished bar, preparing it for a high accuracy second operation. The DHP collet pulls into the chuck to close and pushes out to open. This action means that back stops cannot be provided and must be used where accurate axial positioning is not important. A variety of smooth, serrated, hex or square collets are available in inch or metric.

With the DHF fixed length series power collet, the workpiece remains in a fixed position during actuation, allowing for precise Z-axis positioning. A tapered sleeve is pushed forward, compressing the collet and gripping the workpiece. Designed with a fixed length actuation system that ensures the collet is held stationary, the DHF series allows the collet chuck to be used in bar feeding operations and accurate second operations in single spindle, main and sub spindle and 2SP/left, right spindle machines. Like the DHP, the DHF collet chucks are suitable for collets that have a +/-0.5 mm gripping range.

The DHP and DFF series collet chucks are provided with mounting bolts and a custom-machined drawtube connector, allowing the user to start using it straight out of the box. Collet chucks mount directly to the lathe spindle or use a precision adaptor plate to ensure a consistent mounting without the need for correction. All collet chuck bodies are case hardened.
