3+3 Air Chuck Designed for Secure OCTG Pipe Threading

SMW Autoblok, a manufacturer of rotational chucks, stationary workholding, tooling and custom engineered solutions for the machine tool industry, has introduced the BB-FZA2G pneumatic 3+3 sequencing air chuck featuring an extended stroke clamping range and three self-centering jaws with axial adjustment.

Designed to handle the harsh demands of the Oil and Gas industry, BB-FZA2G allows for quick and easy setup of odd shaped pipe for threading and re-threading. Because of incorporating three jaws with axial adjustment of the centering position while also using three compensating jaws with extra-long rapid and clamping stroke of 1.5", there is no need to re-shim the part. "This enhances operator safety and greatly increases overall productivity," said an SMW Autoblok spokesperson.

Engineered for machining straight and bent pipe, BB-FZA2G is available in 740, 800 and 920 mm to cover an extensive range of pipe diameter sizes, and features a large through-hole of 275, 330 and 390 mm. "This state-of-the-art sequence chuck with pressure control safety system greatly increases production output without re-shimming of jaws," said the spokesperson.
