ITW Workholding introduces the New Advanced Ball Lok (ABL) chuck. The ABL is not just a step forward in workholding technology, but truly a leap. In today's "green" environment, ITW Workholding has leapt ahead of the competition in providing energy efficient workholding.
It all starts with the composite core body. Utilizing years of research, ITW Workholding has developed a patented process by which the body has a steel shell that encompasses a composite core. This provides up to 30% reduction in weight as compared to a similar sized UBL. There are additional advantages to this technology:
The composite body provides a dampening effect, which can improve harmonics in turning operations .
Easier handling when mounting.
