LBP Electromagnetic Grinding Chuck
The Walker LBP fine division electromagnetic chuck is extremely versatile suitable for both grinding and EDM operations. Its variable holding power allows you to hold the workpiece accurately, so that there is just enough force to hold the workpiece in place. The magnetic surface pattern allows for simple and inexpensive tooling designs to hold intricately shaped workpieces. It simplifies complicated set ups with accurate repeatability. Sizes range from 4″x8″ to 16″x32″. Contact factory for detailed specs and pricing. Commonly used in grinding and suitable for sinker EDM applications.
C-2 Permanent Magnetic Grinding Chuck
The Walker C-2 is the most widely accepted permanent magnetic chuck in the machine tool industry. In addition to its ease of installation and operation, this Walker design offers the highest holding power available on the market. It simplifies complicated set-ups with accurate repeatability. Common uses are Tool room grinding and suitable for light milling EDM applications.
Interloc – Electromagnetic Grinding Chuck
This universal workholding chuck offers maximum effective holding on the widest range of workpiece shapes and sizes. Its effectiveness is considerably enhanced by the new low-profile feature, which adds more head room under the wheel. Only 3 1/2″ in height, this low profile Interloc is a full 1 1/2″ less than competitive units of the same type. This savings in height permits greater flexibility with added head room under the wheel to position the work or handle bulkier pieces. This results in savings in set up time and added productivity. It also reduces the chuck weight by 30% or more. The low profile is achieved with no loss of strength, precision or holding power. With the unique Walker Interloc design, more than 75% of the chuck’s surface is major north or south poles, making it easier to locate workpieces without concern for locating poles. There is no wear loss due to the shallower polarity pattern in the replaceable top plate. Common Uses grinding and light milling applications.
Neomicro2 – Permanent Magnetic Grinding Chuck
The Neomicro², is new and improved, replacing the Neomicro. This type of chuck is designed to reliably hold a large range of workpiece sizes, from very small and thin up to larger workpiece sizes, for precision grinding jobs. Common uses are for ideally clamping very thin and small components. It will also hold larger workpieces as well.
TBP – Electromagnetic Grinding Chuck
These transverse bar pole chucks are specially designed for smaller, thinner workpieces and tool steel. The magnetic poles and coils run across the chuck, creating more pole area. This chuck, being special in design, offers superb holding power, but because they are custom made, we would only recommend them when careful investigation has shown that one of our standard chucks will not fit the application. Selection of this design should only be made with the assistance of our Engineering Department. Model Smart Controls are recommended for all Walker Electromagnetic Chucks.
