Above is our standard Model 350THS (thru-hole, stationary) Precision Air Chuck. This model extends the functionality of our 3”, thru hole, stationary chuck by adding a spring-closing feature to it.
It has been converted to a spring-closing mechanism allowing the part to remain clamped even if line pressure is lost.
Air is supplied to one port (steel fitting), while the other (brass fitting) acts to exhaust the other side of the chuck’s piston. The part will stay gripped even if there is a loss of line pressure. Also, the part can be chucked by applying line pressure, temporarily, to open it and then removing all lines to the chuck, allowing it to be gripped by spring force.
Do you have a specific custom job that Northfield can help with?
This design can be mounted on a spindle without a thru-hole, or air cannot be continuously ‘fed’ to the chuck.
