European Manual Lathe Chucks Deliver Precision and Quality

TMX Manual Chucks by Toolmex are designed and manufactured in Europe, and are available in sizes from 3"-100". "Our European TMX lathe chucks are manufactured for excellence and production consistency. We are committed to achieving absolute confidence in quality and dependability," said Lukas Kielb, Toolmex Industrial Solutions Vice President.

All TMX manual chucks made in Europe are produced with hardened steel bodies manufactured from high quality forged steel. "All-forged steel body chucks run at higher speeds and are more durable and rigid compared to chucks with semi-steel cast iron bodies," said a company spokesperson. American Standard Tongue and Groove jaw system allows for use of multiple jaw types to provide a greater selection of clamping applications and capabilities. "Performance steel bodies combined with American Standard 2-piece hardened and ground alloy steel jaws leads to exceptional gripping power," added the spokesperson. The high gripping power and the rigidity of the body contribute to enhanced accuracy and repeatability, providing higher tolerances on workpieces, greater RPMs and extend life of cutting tools and machine spindles.

Additionally, all adapter back plates for TMX manual chucks come fully finished. Back plates are precision machined to fit chuck bodies maintaining accuracy of the product without the need for additional machining. Fully machined TMX adapter plates allow for a speedy set-up, decreasing machine downtime and maximizing productivity.

"The quality and precision of our European TMX manual chucks means that they can handle most rough, medium and finishing machining demands," said Hugh Barnes, Regional Sales Manager. TMX chucks are available in 2, 3, 4 and 6-jaw self-centering scroll chucks, Set-Tru scroll chucks, 4-jaw independent chucks and 5C and 16C collet chucks as well as 3, 4 and 6-jaw heavy-duty VTL chucks.

The offering includes plain back and direct mount chucks in the most popular spindle sizes. Adapter plates, spare parts and jaws are readily available. All items are stocked in Toolmex's new, state-of-the-art U.S. facility.
