In a speed comparison with four chuck technologies, using a 20 mm end mill in the same material, the Emuge FPC Chuck enabled the feed rate to be increased by 30% with no loss in performance.

Emuge Corp. has expanded its line of FPC Milling/ Drilling Chucks products to include Slim Line models that are designed to enhance 5-Axis machining productivity and versatility. Available in the 1/8" to 9/16" (2 mm - 14 mm) size range (FPC14), the compact, slim design with tapered shape enables easier access to the work, especially in confined areas and for challenging angles. 

“As workpiece complexity grows and 5-Axis machining prevalence increases, innovative solutions in tool holding such as our new FPC Slim Line Chucks, help maximize machining productivity while reducing cycle times, downtime and allowing for improved holder clearance conditions,” said Dan Doiron, manager, milling products. 

Featuring the world's only chuck with a 1:16 worm gear, the Emuge FPC Chuck's patented design delivers three tons of traction force. The unique design and body provide 100% holding power for maximum rigidity, and the collet-cone assembly absorbs virtually all vibration for maximum dampening. 

Emuge FPC Chucks are available in five shank styles (CAT, HSK-A, SK, BT and PSC) in 68 different skus for a wide range of applications. A full range of high precision collets and accessories are also available for the FPC line. Emuge FPC Collets are available in three size ranges (FPC 14, FPC 20 and FPC 25) in over 110 different skus, from 1/8" to 1-1/4" and in metric from 2 mm - 32 mm.
