Introducing the CB-NX Collet Chuck

The CB-NX series collet chuck features a low profile dead length design with a reduced diameter nose for maximum tool clearance. The design of this collet is coupled to the chuck body and remains stationary as the tapered seat moves forward when the chuck is actuated. This design keeps the collet in a fixed Z-axis position during clamping and does not create a pull back effect on the bar stock or workpiece.

Additional CB-NX features include:

  • Reduced diameter
  • Dead Length design produces no pull back on the workpiece
  • Draw tube stroke from .160 in to 4 mm
  • Clamping range from +/- .020 in to 0.5 mm
  • Maximum speed up to 6,000 rpm
