Autogrip’s large through hole self contained air chuck range

Represented exclusively in the UK and Eire by Tamworth-based workholding specialist, Leader Chuck Systems, Autogrip’s extensive range high precision power chucks and rotary cylinders are available in four through-hole diameters, 52, 66, 86 and 115 mm, the AP range features an integrated pneumatic cylinder which powers the opening and closing of the chuck jaws. This design negates the need for a draw bar to provide the jaw clamping force, resulting in a larger through bore capacity for bar feeding raw material.

Although the AP chucks have been extensively tested and proven by Autogrip to maintain internal air pressure for more than two weeks, a pressure detection device is built into the chuck to guarantee safe operation up to maximum speeds that extend from 4,200 rpm for the AP-52 to 3,000 rpm for the AP-115.

Leader Chuck’s Managing Director, Mark Jones, explained: “Autogrip has an established reputation for producing high quality workholding products, manufacturing power chucks and hydraulic rotary cylinders for a number of world class OEM machine tool builders. The Patented new air supplied chuck is even further proof of the company’s technical capability, offering a complete range of cost-effective workholding solutions.”

Based in Changhua County, Taiwan, Autogrip Machinery has been producing its extensive range of precision chucks for over two decades. Today, the ISO 9001 accredited company employs around 600 people and produces a wide range of standard and special high rigidity, high precision power chucks and rotary cylinders.
