Keyless Chucks Receive Design Upgrade

The German clamping specialist Witte Barskamp is giving its keyless chucks a significant upgrade. Keyless chucks are used for gripping complex, rotationally symmetrical or elliptical parts when testing with 3D coordinate or roundness measuring equipment.

In addition to an ergonomically optimized slew ring, the 2022 generation of Witte chucks come with two other innovations – Jaw bores for the additional
insertion of stepped positioning pins as well as threaded holes for screwing in spacers and stops.

The newly designed slew ring now enables an even simpler, more comfortable and sensitive adjustment of the three- and six-jaw chucks. The additional pin holes in the jaws are used to accommodate stepped positioning pins that are included as standard. This makes a feature that was previously available as an extra part of the basic equipment of the entire Witte jaw chuck series.

Three additional threaded holes in the chuck base now also allow spacers to be screwed in, or the application of a torsional stop that is independent of
the movement of the jaws. All upgrades of the black anodized new jaw chuck generation from Witte are included at no additional cost compared to the previous versions.

The three- and six-jaw manual chucks from Witte also come to the user as a basic set of up to 37 parts consisting of base jaws, reversible jaws and top
jaws. The combination of base jaws and top jaws alone allows for an enormous number of workpiece-specific clamping options.
