5C Collet Chucks

Add versatility and quick part changing capability to your VH-6 or VH-8 rotary table by mounting a 5C collet chuck and draw bar. Fast, precise work holding is achieved using either a manual handle or simply flip a switch on our pneumatic collet closer.


Air Collet Closers

For faster, easier and more reliable collet closing, upgrade your VH-5C or multi-head 5C with our superior designed air collet closer. Our unique springless closers use a multiplier for both the clamping and releasing of the collet so parts never get stuck. Just connect an air supply, adjust your collet and flip a switch on the two-way valve to easily clamp and unclamp your parts.


Air Over Hydraulic Brake Amplifier   

Greatly increases brake holding power for those tougher metals, or if you simply want take on some heavier cutting.  Also includes a stronger backplate, which is a must for this added power.  Compatible with the VH7, VH8, VH8-XL, VH11, VH15, and the TR8 (B-Axis only).
