Our rim clamp chucks function identically to our flange-style chucks, but fasten to the shaft by use of a split flange rather than with a set screw.

How does it work

Red Divider

Like our dependable flange-style chucks, Tilt-Lock’s rim clamp chucks feature spring-activated teeth to assure instant, automatic lock-up in a wider range of core I.D. variations. The only difference between the two designs is the method of fastening the chuck to the shaft; rim clamp chucks use split flanges rather than set screws.

The steel springs, located under each tooth, “tilt” the tool steel teeth forward and out from the chuck chassis when in the relaxed position. The tooth circle reduces to the size of the core I.D. when entering the core. Steel bands hold the teeth in the tooth cavities, yet allow free movement in the core. Bands also provide easy tooth removal when changing roll directions.
