Lexair Direct Mount Collet Chucks offer a simple and
economical way of holding material for turning when
using "C" or "J" style collets.
Our small body helps to increase tool
clearance and lower the weight of rotating mass. This
feature both relieves stress on the spindle bearings and
lowers the time needed for acceleration or deceleration
which means more time for production of parts. The rigid
360° clamping action allows for increases in spindle
RPM's. These units are an excellent choice for clamping
small diameter parts, for bar feed applications, and for
heavy "roughing" and drilling operations. The "5C"
chucks feature a standard threaded nose providing step
chuck capability. Installation is effortless and employs
the machine's standard drawtube plus one of our unique
adapter nuts. These nuts are custom designed for your
application via information supplied on a datasheet
which must be filled out prior to ordering.
