Albrecht Catalog 2020

TEL: 1-800-645-4174 122 ALBRECHT The World's Most Consistently Accurate Drill Chucks Collar Knurled steel collar gives good gripping surface when opening & closing chuck. Shell Heat-treated alloy steel. After heat treatment, shell threads are ground to exact size of mating threads in each hood. This assembly then stays together through rest of manufacturing process. Internal taper ground concentric to outside ground surfaces. Body Heat-treated alloy steel. O.D. and shoulder ground square and concentric to internal taper. Drive Pin Jaw Guide Angle ground to match hood. Jaws Made from heat-treated high-carbon alloy steel. Each jaw undergoes 20–22 separate machining operations during manufacture. Internal hood angle ground square to face. Two I.D.s and shoulder ground in the same chucking for accuracy. Shoulder and face ground square to both inside diameters and shoulder. Bearings Precision ground hardened balI bearings. O.D. and shoulder ground square and concentric internal taper. Spindle Heat-treated alloy steel. Threads are lapped together at assembly to ensure maximum clamping power. Critical surfaces ground to exacting tolerances. Hood Heat-treated alloy steel. Knurled for positive grip. Surfaces ground for appearance. For the past 100 years, Albrecht’s line of precision drill chucks has consistently earned the highest praise for outstanding quality and accuracy. At the Albrecht factory, located outside of Stuttgart, Germany, in-process air gages and custom test fixtures are used to inspect all components throughout each step of the manufacturing process. Upon assembly, each chuck is qualified with 4–6 different diameter test pins at two distinct locations on each pin, and then a quality control inspector repeats the process with 4–6 different pins before approving the chuck for packaging. Drill chuck accuracy is critical to producing accurate hole sizing and promoting longer drill life. In today’s competitive environment of short lead times and slim margins, a few scrapped parts can quickly kill a job’s profits. Can you afford to take a chance on anything less than an Albrecht?
