According to Northfield (Island Park, NY), its Balancing Chucks feature the highest accuracy; highest RPM; shortest hung mass; and the fastest and most accurate changeover.
When parts rotate without calibration, increased or insufficient pressure occurs, causing errors with the end-product. In a high precision environment, even the smallest difference can have a huge impact on the final product. When the fine tolerances have been exceeded, the result can be expensive and time-consuming repairs. With ever increasing speeds used on rotating machinery, balancing is more important than ever. The trademark accuracy and repeatability of Northfield chucks allow customers to take their designs to the next level.
