Northfield Precision Instrument Corp. introduces their Model 1000 10-inch diameter, 3-jaw air chuck. The standard chuck normally weighs about 60 lbs. Northfield custom-designed this chuck for a customer by milling the face of the chuck, reducing its weight by 15 lbs. This lighter weight helps maintain the accuracy of the machine.

  • milling

    milling

    Machining operation in which metal or other material is removed by applying power to a rotating cutter. In vertical milling, the cutting tool is mounted vertically on the spindle. In horizontal milling, the cutting tool is mounted horizontally, either directly on the spindle or on an arbor. Horizontal milling is further broken down into conventional milling, where the cutter rotates opposite the direction of feed, or “up” into the workpiece; and climb milling, where the cutter rotates in the direction of feed, or “down” into the workpiece. Milling operations include plane or surface milling, endmilling, facemilling, angle milling, form milling and profiling.
