Milling MaGNETIC CHUCKS - TOP 2 TECHNOLOGIES
ELECTRO-PERMANENT MAGNETIC MILLING CHUCKS
Electropermanent magnet milling chucks are a great options that for 5 axis machining. They last many years, great ROI. There is no moving parts inside these chuck. Power is only needed when turning the magnet on or off
PERMANENT MAGNETIC MILLING CHUCKS
Permanent milling chucks are an excellent option for customers seeking an option that is not electrical. These milling magnets are usually turned on and off mechanically with a lever or Allen key.
machine all 5 sides
Electro-Permanent or Permanent magnetic chucks for milling can both be great options if you work with a 5 axis cnc mill. You don't have to worry about any wires or cables being attached to the magnet during your manufacturing process. Face mill without a hitch. Screw on some raiser blocks and you can edge mill all sides even drill through parts!
PERMANENT MILLING MAGNETIC CHUCKS
The FM magnetic milling chuck has a Twin magnetic system. It has a silver brazed top plate, heavy duty construction with inserted Ferrite magnets.
The TF2 is a customer favorite. A very powerful magnetic chuck for milling. It is filled with the strongest rare earth (neodymium) magnets.
ELECTRO-PERMANENT MILLING MAGNETIC CHUCKS
TYPE TM50 SQ3
This electro-permanent chuck has robust stainless steel airgaps. It can withstand a long term beating in the shop. A great 5 year warranty comes with this milling chuck.
The TM40 is the best magnetic chuck for plate milling. Extremely robust body and poles. Completely water proof. This electro-permanent chuck will last years and years to come. 40mm pole pitch!
Similar concept to the TM40. This Electro-Permanent magnetic chuck has an 18mm pole pitch . Great for milling medium to small sized parts. Add some pole risers made of mild steel and customize your nesting.
TYPE TM50 SQ1
Similar to the TM50SQ3, this milling chuck also has a 50x50mm square pole airgap. The airgap to this magnetic chuck is made of a high impact resistant resin epoxy. A great standard option.
MAGNETIC TESTING & SERVICES
They are most often used as a magnetic workholding device and installed on a mill or surface grinder. A permanent magnetic chuck is simply activated and deactivated mechanically. The permanent magnets (usually rare earth, Alnico or ferrite) are always active inside the chuck. The magnetic field stays locked inside the chuck when it is not activated.
When activated, the magnetic field is released and now able to lock into the part that is to be surface ground or milled.
Unlike other types of workholding devices that require clamping, a permanent magnetic chuck provides a secure hold without the need for mechanical clamps or fixtures, allowing for faster and more efficient machining operations. Permanent magnetic chucks are commonly used in grinding, milling, and drilling applications.
An electro-permanent magnet for milling is a type of workholding device used in milling operations to hold ferromagnetic workpieces securely in place during the manufacturing process. It has the advantage a permanent chuck that does not rely on constant electricity to hold parts. Which means greater safety for the operator and you save on your electric bill! It has no moving parts, which means a very slow wear and tear. Since there is no constant electricity going through a coil, it provides the advantage of working with a cold surface and avoiding heat and the potential deformation to the steel part, a great advantage vs. an electromagnet.
A magnetic chuck for milling machine can be easily installed on most 5 axis CNC machines and:
