The ROTA-S flex chuck is a flexible manual chuck for machining myriad workpieces on milling and turning machines. The ROTA-S flex has all the same beneficial features as the ROTA-S plus in addition to extended guideways — transforming it into a large, versatile, lightweight chuck.
More specifically, the weight of the ROTA-S flex is approximately 60% less than that of a conventional chuck with the same capacity. It has an identical table load, so that much heavier workpieces can be machined. Due to its low profile the chuck allows plenty of space for the workpiece and tools. For machining smaller workpieces, the extended guideways can easily be disassembled, improving workpiece accessibility compared to conventional large chucks. A special lubrication system ensures permanently high clamping forces for both versions. The chuck also boasts seals that prevent chips and dust from entering.
The ROTA-S flex can be assembled on a machine table, and by using the optimized quick-change jaw system, retrofitting can be quickly done. The chuck clamps small parts as reliably as large ones, ensuring operator safety. The Rota-S flex can also combine with numerous chuck jaws from 1,200 types from SCHUNK.
