ISLAND PARK, N.Y.—A customer of Northfield Precision Instrument Corporation needed a way to carefully hold delicate ceramic rings on the OD so they could grind on the ID.

The customer requested that no metal touch the parts. Northfield adapted its 6-inch Diaphragm Chuck with custom top tooling made from the most abrasion-resistant plastic available (without a filler). These items can be quickly changed for new ones should a future need arise.

Northfield Precision Instrument Corporation, specializing in the design and manufacture of precision workholding chucks, develops custom solutions for difficult problems, according to company representatives.

Northfield Precision Instrument (www. northfield.com) designs and manufactures air chucks for any lathe, boring machine, grinder, or VMC. Models include through-hole, high-speed, and quick-change. Chucks are available in SAE or metric, in sizes from 3 inches (76mm) to 18 inches (457mm). Accuracies of 0.001inch to 0.00001 inch (0.254m) are guaranteed.

Custom workholding chucks and jaws are available and free engineering assistance is offered.
