Albrecht Inc. (Hauppauge, NY) has renamed the Albrecht Power Chuck (APC) line of CNC milling tool holders as the Albrecht Überchuck. The new name acknowledges both the product’s German heritage and the patented technology that permits this innovative tool holder to outperform its shrink-fit and hydraulic competitors, according to the company. The design of the Überchuck takes advantage of a patented, two-stage clamping mechanism that provides high gripping torque. This results in the extreme rigidity and excellent dampening characteristics that allow more efficient and aggressive cutting, and provide longer cutting-tool life. A further benefit is easier, faster tool changes that save both labor and reduce downtime.
