MANUAL CHUCKS

Manual Chucks are used for many applications. Essentially a Manual Chuck is used for basic turning operations on Centre and Turret Lathes, however it is not uncommon for this type of chuck to be used on CNC Machines where the application allows.application allows.

It is also quite common for a Manual Chuck to be used in a Milling application, either fixed to the bed of the machine via an adaptor, or to a fourth or fifth axis unit.

We are able to supply Manual Chucks in several derivatives; 2 Jaw Self Centering, 3 Jaw Self Centering, 4 Jaw Self Centering, 6 Jaw Self Centering; Also with Independent Jaw Adjustment (4 Jaws) and a Combination Chuck with both Self Centering and Independent Adjustment, in 3 and 4 Jaw options.

Our range also includes high precision Wedge Bar Chucks which offer high gripping forces and quick change jaws, and are particularly suited to CNC applications.

Manual Chucks are available from the worlds leading manufacturers including Forkardt, Omap, TdeG, Pratt Burnerd and our own Rocksteady Brand.

A full range of spare parts can be sourced for all manufacturers of Manual Chuck – even if obsolete or spurious, we have the facility to reverse engineer.

OMAP

John Walton are proud to be the UK Technical Partner for OMAP, Italy – Manufacturer of fine Lathe Chucks and accessories

O.M.A.P OFFICINE MECCANICHE ALTA PRECISIONE WAS FOUNDED IN 1963 IN PONTE NELLE ALPI.

Specialising in construction and manufacturing of machine tools and equipment for special processing, the  development of cutting-edge technologies and the use of qualified and skilled staff have enabled the Company to propose, in the Italian and international market, quality products, patented, certificated and manufactured entirely in Italy: Self-centering Tribloc chucks for lathes, Self-centering Tribloc chucks for grinding machines, Self-centering Tribloc chucks for milling machines since inception.

FOR OVER 10 YEARS, THE COMPANY HAS ADDED TO ITS HISTORICAL PRODUCTION OF SELF-CENTRING CHUCKS FOR LATHES

This last task involved the investments made in recent years in terms of machinery and equipment and specialists.
Omap is able to provide machined parts working them, at all stages, within its facility. The pieces can be subjected to all the required machining: milling, turning, plunge and wire spark cutting, internal, external, tangential and planetary grinding before being subjected to final testing with the most modern means of control.
The policy of Omap and technical features of the workshop allow the customer to request small batches (1 to 100 pieces). The urgency is an important parameter and that is why Omap is always ready to change its processing to meet customer needs. It also has a large stock of steels to meet all your needs quickly.

FORKARDT

FORKARDT F+

The Forkardt F+ is a manual 3-jaw chuck based on the wedge block principle pioneered by Forkardt. The F+ manual chuck features a true quick change jaw feature and standard mounting features. Internal components are easily changed by the user, making the F+ robust with a long service life.

The F+ manual chuck shares the same jaw style as the FNC power chuck, so there are many jaw options available. The jaws are DIN standard and top tooling is interchangeable with other DIN style manual and power chucks. The F+ manual chuck has a large thru-hole and is excellent in grinding applications. Higher Gripping Force can be obtained thanks to the Wedge Block and this makes it highly suited to CNC Turning applications.

ROCKSTEADY NT SERRATED JAW MANUAL CHUCK

Brand New! The ROCKSTEADY NT Steel Bodied Scroll Chuck features a wide Serrated Base Jaw and Tee Nut that accepts top tooling from most Japanese style Power Chucks – the obvious advantages of this being that Jaws can be used across manual and CNC machines.

Also a reduction in set up times for small batch production can be made by using common chuck jaws. The standard Serration for this chuck i9s 1,5mm x 60 degree – however we can provide 1/16” x 90 if required – who remembers the “TUDOR” Chuck? Click here for more – or watch the UNBOXED VIDEO below
