Pneumatic Chucks Feature Patented Air-Feed System



Global Tooling Solution's AP pneumatic chuck series features a unique and patented air-feed system that utilizes a built-in cylinder for air delivery providing high gripping force and clamping capacity.

"This patented built-in cylinder eliminates the traditional sealed (distributor) ring that is featured on other manufacturers' models," said a company spokesperson. "AUTOGRIP'S new patented system greatly reduces the need for maintenance, eliminates down time and it makes these chucks very easy to install. AP Series chucks are produced with a safety `air detection' feature that automatically stops the chuck if there is a loss of air pressure. AP Series chucks are available in 10 inches to 28 inches diameters, with through-holes as large as 14.8 inches."

"AUTOGRIP air chucks can be used as an alternative and easy replacement for manual or hydraulic chucks," the spokesperson added. "Air chucks are used in a variety of applications, such as milling, turning, rotary tables, welding applications and more," the spokesperson added. "It can be installed in both vertical and horizontal operations. `A' style short taper adapters are available from stock, and we can produce any adapter or baseplate configuration required to support any application. Large diameter AP chucks with extra-large through-holes are an excellent choice for heavy duty applications requiring a large through-hole."

These chucks are suitable for the oil field and pipe threading applications where use of the full spindle bore is required.
