Quick Change Tapping Chucks

Quick change tapping chucks are the collet chucks for tapping machining that can be changed in a quick pace. Tapping is a type of industrial machining process that can deal with many detailed cutting procedures, so that the milling and turning can be processed with even more convenient procedures. 


Automatic Tapping and Drilling Integrated.

Tapping as an important machining procedure and cannot be listed alone in the ordinary machine tool functionalities, since today people tend to use versatile machinery to complete their working orders with high variety but low volume. 

As a result, in the development of machine tool history, there are two main aspects that are both highly appraised and widely accepted. The first is customization, that is, the specific types of machines aiming for some specific machining tasks, granting the optimal and fastest production. The other is the versatility, which allows a single machine to have more than two kinds of machining capabilities, which would increase the added value of the machine model so that business owners need not to buy new machine tools for the new requests. 

Regarding the machine tools that can also proceed drilling and tapping tasks, there are turning centers, milling machines, machining centers, tapping centers, and some types of drilling machines. 

For tapping and drilling to be switched more quickly during the machining process, a well developed quick change tapping chucks is very crucial to finish the entire process. Users and onsite workers prefer such features to be deployed in a profound way that they can coordinate to complete the whole drilling and tapping process. On the other hand, many turning lathe machines and milling based machine tools are also designed with the tapping functionality so that the added tapping functions would grant added values on the existing turning machines or milling machines. 


Turning centers and Tapping

Based on the added functionality, a turning and tapping machine is also known as CNC turning center, which is a machine that is capable of both turning and tapping functions and rotates a workpiece on an axis of rotation to perform various machining operations such as cutting, tapping, and turning; such machining are conducted with tools that are applied to the workpiece and to create an object with symmetry with the axis which is driven by the primary spindle set. 

For usual circumstances, turning machines with tapping functionalities are categorized into two main types according to the way that clamps the workpieces. Those are vertical lathe and the horizontal counterparts. For the former, the workpiece is clamped vertically and the cutting tool is thus installed the same direction so that the machining is conducted vertically. In this way, the clamping is much more stern and fixed due to the gravity effect compared to the horizontal methodology. 

The manufacturers of vertical turning machines usually made their vertical turning machines into great manufacturing facilities for users in a variety of industrial sectors that pursue for high precision, such as automotive industry, aerospace sector, sport equipment application, and other fields with larger size work pieces.


Vertical Clamping and Tapping Works

Based on the vertical clamping mechanism, the spindles of vertical turning lathes are also located behind the chuck, while some may be belt-driven, and others may be different types of driving mechanisms. The work of the spindles affects the working capacity as well as the future maintenance. 

Like other milling machines and machining centers, turning lathes can also be equipped with power tools as well as tool magazines to boost its functionality and versatility such as the added tapping feature, granting wider processing possibility to users. 

Power turret is a modern and standard accessory of many CNC turning machines, and as one of the most important accessories to the users of CNC lathes, Taiwanese suppliers aim at this business and have developed many well known power turret and power tool companies that supports the demands from lathe users all over the world market. 

Many of these power turrets are driven by a single motor with servo features, which can assure the best machining effects of turning and tapping, and save the energy consumption, which are all important and constant variables to be calculated in the industrial usages in the working sites.
