Our 6 jaw chucks offer the ability to hold thin wall parts with minimal distortion. These chucks operate on a 2+2+2 clamping system meaning that the grip surface will be chucked in its naturally out of round condition. This results in minimal distortion to the machined area. If you machine an internal diameter it will remain round after it is un-chucked.
These chucks are also offered in a counter balanced configuration, resulting in higher speeds and less clamp force needed. Kitagawa-NorthTech also provides full engineering support, design and build mounting hardware, jaws and locators.

With the use of advanced engineering software we can design, in 3D, all of the tooling components (jaws, locators and centers) for any chuck. To ensure quality, our on-staff engineers utilize deformation analysis software to predict how your part will perform under the proposed cutting conditions. Our goal is to provide you with the highest performance workholding solution at the best price.
