Rigid, Accurate, and Dependable Workholding
Greater accuracies, faster cycle times, and better surface finishes are all byproducts of choosing the right workholding solution for gear production.
As I sit down to write this article, I realize that in one week I will have spent 35 years of my life manufacturing and designing chucks. I began working here at Speedgrip Chuck, Inc. in March 1979, shortly after leaving the military. My first position here was as a machinist, working nights while attending college classes during the day.
Several years later I was asked to come into the engineering department as a detailer—later my responsibilities changed to being a designer, and now to my present position of chief designer for Speedgrip, Cameron, and Madison Face Driver.
I have seen great changes in my various positions here: from running numerous machines throughout the manufacturing process; to drawing on the board for several years; to the transition of 2D CAD use. Today we have very powerful 3D CAD, FEA, and simulation software used to design our chucks. Click here to read the full article.
Can you share with me a datasheet with specifications and 3D model of actuator: C-8360-R ?
