Chucks for Oil/Gas Components

In booth 1315 at HOUSTEX 2017, RÖHM Products of America will showcase two chucks designed to optimize part clamping for applications within the oil and gas industry.

On display will be the HSFZ swivel chucks that permit machining of bushings, connectors and adaptors from both sides. RÖHM will also display the LVE-V-AZ pneumatic six-jaw front-end chucks that are designed to enable precise and productive turning of large, long pipe ends. The LVE chuck is designed to provide safe complete threading operations without the need for shimming the pipe to center.

The swivel chucks feature an axis that is orientated 90° relative to the rotary axis and swivels to automatically bring the workpiece into machining position to maximize both radial and axial accuracies and minimize set-up time. In the LVE-V-AZ chuck, a combination of three concentric clamping jaws with three compensating clamping jaws provides low-deformation clamping.

Visitors will experience firsthand how RÖHM's pneumatic six-jaw front-end LVE-V-AZ chucks are suited for machining the end of pipes used for extracting crude oil or natural gas. For those part applications, the chucks can be mounted to the front and rear sides of the machine spindle to allow for heavy-duty chip cutting performance with enhanced turning precision.

RÖHM offers the chucks in a variety of configurations to handle a wide range of machining situations, such as machining of bent pipe. The configurations include ES versions with rapid stroke and clamping stroke, versions featuring retracting clamping arms for precentering the workpiece, and versions with spring clamping and pneumatic release.
