QUICK CHANGE

How many times do you change Chuck Jaws each day?
2, 3, more? If so you are wasting valuable production time by changing and re-boring jaws.

Our research shows that the average time to change a set of chuck jaws on a conventional power chuck is 23 minutes – 3 changes a day and that is over 1 hour machining time wasted!

The Pratt Burnerd High Speed Quick Change Chuck
reduces your change time to under 1 minute. We can also deliver and install the chuck to your turning centre ready to accept all your existing Jaws! Beleive it or not this chuck doubles as a Collet Chuck with a range of quick change pads. Click above for more data, and call for an onsite demonstration and justification.
