Northfield Precision Instrument January 17, 2013

Officials for Northfield Precision Instrument Corp., a leader in the design and manufacture of precision workholding chucks, introduces their Model 1000, 10" diameter, 3-jaw air chuck. The standard chuck normally weighs about 60 lb. Northfield custom-designed this chuck for a customer by milling the face of the chuck, reducing its weight by 15 lb. This lighter weight helps maintain the accuracy of the machine.
