Brief & Challenge:
Our customer manufactures delicate ceramic rings. They needed a way to carefully hold them on the outer diameter so they could grind the inner diameter. In order to protect the parts, they requested the chuck had no metal contact points.
We produced a 6” Diaphragm Chuck with non-metallic top tooling in contact with the customer’s part. The top tooling, made from the most abrasion-resistant plastic available can be quickly changed, for new ones, should a future need arise.
