  • Publication number: 20040169342
    Abstract: The invention has been developed to solve the drawbacks of the conventional chuck construction, and it is an object of the invention to provide a compact chuck construction, by omitting the axial movement parts, which are inevitable in the conventional chuck construction. A chuck body 10 comprising an axially movable plunger 30 and a jaw 20, in which said jaw 20 having master jaw body 24 obliquely arranged with respect to the axis, said plunger 30 having a bush 41 which act as a wedge, and a driving means 50 at the rear end of the master jaw body 24, said wedge means 40 having a structure of canceling a moment applied to the jaw 20 as a result of clamping and the driving means 50 providing a reactant force to the master jaw body 24 for canceling drawing force applied to the plunger 30.

  • Patent number: 5848795
    Abstract: Even though the shape and size of an aluminum wheel to be chucked for machining is changed, it is possible to easily deal with this situation and to simply chuck the same. In a finger chuck which finger levers 5 are swingably mounted in the radius direction via fulcrum point parts 8 installed at adequately spaced positions in the circumferential direction of the outer circumference of a chuck body, the front end face part of the chuck body front part, which constitutes the front portion of said fulcrum point parts, is eliminated, a plurality of front end face parts 12 which are intended to be selectively replaced and mounted at said eliminated portion are formed integral with each other, and at this time said plurality of front end face parts are provided with a clamp seat 14 and a centering member 23 so that each of said front end face parts can be applied to specified kinds of different workpieces w.
