    Issue with chuck/Workholding lead screws breaking threads.

    Seeming like to me the jaws themselves are worn causing the stress on the lead screw. All the screws but 1 have normally 2-4 threads that break and not all of them are at the root. Have noticed on a lot of these that before where the thread is broken, I am seeing galling on about every other...

    Issue with chuck/Workholding lead screws breaking threads.

    it may be, but its only 1 of 8 machines that has this issue all have the same jaw types so if that were the case shouldn't I see this on all machines not 1 specific one?

    issue with lead screw in chuck/Workholding

    Alright so looked at the bolts they started to save once they thought it was a problem updating those pics as well here shortly. Some snap at the root some show signs of galling or scraping right before it breaks at the root from what I saw. I think 1 may have been due to over tightening since...

    issue with lead screw in chuck/Workholding

    Defiantly not striking them with a cutter. Will go out onto the shop floor and look into the galling and let you know what I see.

    issue with lead screw in chuck/Workholding

    I agree. Maybe we will replace the screws and get new jaws and then do some sheet metal covers for this one machine and see where that lands me

    issue with lead screw in chuck/Workholding

    In the process of finding out from the manufacturers. But if that was the case it would be on all 8 machines not just one, more so since machinists switch machines regularly. We are a 3-shift shop and it's not 1 operator that it happens to. Seems to have no consistency at least found yet I'm...

    issue with lead screw in chuck/Workholding

    Was eyeballing the jaws thinking that maybe they are just worn out. The chips under the part is because this one was done machining so I snagged a photo once the pallet changer swapped parts. I'll look into that they do seem to break around the same spot on all the bolts i have been shown so far

    issue with lead screw in chuck/Workholding

    they are all the same for the jaws on all the machines making it more perplexing to say the least. I am guessing the material is defiantly harder than the screws trying to get an answer from the manufacturer as to the material/standers its heat treated too. But were machining hardened chromium...

    probe coupled with hydraulic chucks and support

    Looking into really getting the shop I came to into the next generation of machining parts. I have a design for a hydraulic clamping system, that also uses hydraulic swing clamps and hydraulic support systems. Our parts are large, heavy and hard (chromium mixture). We currently load them into...
