Recently at Northfield we produced a custom internal grip collet chuck for balancing drive shafts.
The collet on this chuck is ground to grip the pitch diameter of splined C.V. joints of a driveshaft assembly.
The ‘cone’ has multiple stop pads for axial location. The chuck assembly is balanced prior to production using the tapped holes. The chuck repeats to less than 0.005mm total indicator reading (T.I.R.).
