Low Profile, Quick Change Collet Chucks

Kitagawa-NorthTech, Inc. has introduced its new DKF Series of low profile, collet chucks. The DKF low profile collet chuck features a compact nose, which is required when additional tool clearance is needed in tight workpiece and machining environments.

Designed with a fixed actuation system, the DKF Quick-Change compact collet chucks are engineered for first and second operation machining. The fixed length collet chuck from Kitagawa-NorthTech is designed for bar machining applications and is suitable for DC Varibore collet types with gripping ranges from 4 mm to 65 mm.

The DKF Series low profile quick change 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. The precision fit of the Kitagawa-NorthTech's DKF collet chuck enhances the rigidity of the overall system. The need for adjustment is minimal. All the collet chuck bodies are case hardened, optimizing the rigidity, strength and durability.

Shawn Luschei, VP of Sales, stated, "As an engineered Kitagawa branded workholding product, customers will get the same superior performance, reliability and longevity they have come to rely on and expect from our power chucks, with our new DKF Series of low profile collet chucks for applications with small workpiece envelopes and congested machining environments."
