Acugrip hydraulic chucks have proved invaluable
for locating parts securely and with consistent accuracy for many
These include turning, boring and grinding as well as delicate inspection
Gripping pressures can range from just a few pounds, for use on
a fragile thin walled component, to several thousand pounds for more
Their ability to hold component diameters with geometric errors
such as ‘taper’ and ‘out of round’ make them
far superior to conventional jaw type chucks.

split sleeves for accurately gripping a rotor assembly during turning.
