Leader Announces New Partner
Leader Chuck International is delighted to announce the details of its new partnership with Tecnologie FRB.
Tecnologie FRB, a highly regarded Italian company based in Bologna, has built a global reputation for the design and manufacture of live centres and face drivers for turning, grinding and hobbing machines.
Mark Jones says: “From the mid-1960s, Tecnologie FRB has been developing a full range of face drivers for turning, grinding, and gear cutting operations, aiming at meeting the needs of all industry customers.”
Its face drivers can fit any workpiece holder, ranging from 5 to over 300 mm diameter, with the classic spring-operated system to the most advanced hydraulically operated system.
Manufacturing high quality face drivers for over 50 years, only one thing has never changed: the FRB patented balancing and holding system. Being completely mechanical and technologically advanced it still ensures absolute reliability, constant repeatability of the results and unparalleled holding capacity.
Over the same time period, the FRB live centres have been considered one of the best options for all mechanical processes using machine tools. Starting with the timeless FRB patented 65, 80 and 85 live centre series with axial load distribution, the company’s ongoing research and development has produced the latest 2000, 2006 and 2008 series. Today, a wide variety of revolving centres equipped with Morse tapers ranging in size are available, with standard or special features to fit any requirement.
