Lightweight Balance Chucks

Northfield is the world’s premier manufacturer of ultra-precision balance chucks, with chucks that weigh less than half of the competition. Northfield is also the only chuck supplier recommended by major balance manufacturers. Northfield’s mission is to provide manufacturing companies with the most accurate work holding solutions in the world through custom-manufactured, high quality solutions. Northfield Balancing Chucks feature the highest accuracy; highest RPM; shortest hung mass; and the fastest and most accurate change over.

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.

The trademark accuracy and repeatability of Northfield chucks allow customers to take their designs to the next level.
