Through Lexair, you will find “Made in the USA” environmentally friendly collet chucks to your specifications with greater rigidity and durability, 15% faster, no necessary adjustment of Teflon elements, 45% more gripping force and cycling in one half the time. Lexair offers precision collet chucks ranging from self-contained mechanical grip fixed-length versions to wrench operated units for applications where no drawtube is available. Our collet chucks can accommodate parts up to 5 ½ inches in diameter. We offer a range of chucks:

  • Full Bore® - featuring a fully self-contained collet chuck that does not require an external actuator. This eliminates the use of a drawtube, allowing the full spindle inner diameter to be utilized with larger bar stock than can be used with typical hydraulic 3 jaw chucks. Our Full Bore® chucks offer you the opportunity to dramatically increase machining throughput in your facility. The Lexair Full Bore chuck is equally suited for lathe main and/or sub spindle operation. The Full Bore is also used for rotary table and indexer applications where power chuck clamp and unclamping is advantageous. The Full Bore clamping pressure is adjustable from very light clamp force for thin wall delicate parts to heavy clamp force for aggressive machining. The unique design of this chuck allows very fast, less than one second clamp and unclamp times, even when low clamp forces are required. This capability is a great time saver for high volume automotive type applications. The Full Bore collet chuck design is not affected by centrifugal forces produced by high spindle RPM’s. Full Bore offers direct spindle mount in A2-5,6,8 and 11. The Full Bore is a time proven design made 100% in Lexington, Kentucky where applications assistance is always available.
    • Wrench Operated – featuring a design that requires no drawtube cylinder or collet closer as they are manually operated via a standard chuck key. These chucks feature a flat back and can be used in any application on lathes, mills and grinders as well as rotary, fourth and fifth axis applications for all your machining needs.
    • A complete line of collets is available in all sizes and types to fit our entire line of collet closers and chucks.
