Chucks with 6 jaws are used to reduce distortion in thin walled components, or to spread the gripping force more evenly, giving a better finish in grinding operations. These chucks allow the operator to re-align the front body of the chuck and therefore the workpiece in relation to the spindle nose, thus giving increased accuracy of within 0.005mm. The chuck will then grip subsequent workpieces of the same diameter within 0.013mm. Griptru chucks can be used as normal chucks, simply by leaving the front body in the central position. Adaptor plates are available on request following minor modification from the standard design.
