Schaumburg, Illinois – Kitagawa NorthTech Inc., global manufacturer of custom engineered chucks and workholding, introduces the DKF Series of low-profile collet chucks. They feature a compact nose which is required when additional tool clearance is needed in tight workpiece and machining environments.

Designed with a fixed actuation system, the DKF Quick-Change Compact Collet Chucks are engineered for first and second operation machining. The fixed-length collet chuck from Kitagawa NorthTech is for bar machining applications and suitable for DC Varibore Collet types with gripping ranges from 4mm to 65mm. With its Quick-Change Collet Chuck tool, the DKF Series Collect Chuck promise easy changes within 10 seconds.

The DKF Series low profile, fixed actuation, collet chucks feature problem free installation, easy mounting, and long service life and are provided with mounting bolts and a custom-machined drawtube connector to use it straight out of the box. Collet chucks mount directly to the lathe spindle or use a precision adaptor plate to ensure a consistent mounting without the need for correction. The precision fit of the Kitagawa NorthTech’s DKF collet chuck enhances the rigidity of the overall system. The need for adjustment is minimal, meaning less machine down-time. All the collet chuck bodies are case hardened, optimizing rigidity, strength, and durability.
