Chandox SE Series Super Thin Chucks are available from LMC Workholding. These chucks are well suited for holding work pieces for gaging and metrology applications. The chuck knob is rotated directly for gripping and loosening without the need for a handle. The SE Series chuck bodies are made of durable steel. Jaws are reversible to grip various sizes more conveniently; small sizes of 0.8mm can be gripped with 2" chucks.
