Recently at Northfield we produced a custom internal grip collet chuck for balancing drive shafts.
The collet on this chuck grips the pitch diameter of splined C.V. joints of a driveshaft assembly.
- The ‘cone’ has multiple stop pads for axial location.
- Tapped holes balance the chuck assembly prior to production.
- The chuck repeats to less than 0.005mm total indicator reading (T.I.R.).
Northfield is the world’s premier manufacturer of ultra-precision balance chucks for prop shafts, with chucks that weigh less than half of our competitors. We are also the only chuck supplier recommended by major balance manufacturers.
