We offer outstanding tool grinding chucks, collets, sleeves, and related gear from GDS, a German firm with a well deserved reputation for precision. But forget what you’ve experienced in terms of pricing and delivery on other high quality, high tech products from Europe! We stock key items, pass on the power of the US dollar against the Euro, and tack on a modest markup. You will love what we can do for you!
The star attraction is the amazing μGrind “super chuck” from GDS. Designed by tool grinders for tool grinding, it’s simply the best tool grinding chuck in the industry by far. And it’s now available for all WALTER CNC tool grinders (including the Helitronic Micro and Helitronic Mini Automation), the ANCA FX, MX, and TX machines, the Star NXT, the Reinecker WZS 700, WZS 60 and RS 700 machines, and the Saacke UW ID, IF, and IIF tool grinders.
For clamping bigger tools and/or a bigger diameter range, check out the GDS Viper.
For highly variable regrinding, or other applications where a 5-jaw chuck is helpful, we offer the new SHARK.
WALTER users looking for an economical automatic tool grinding chuck should check out the Cobra.
For manual clamping, we offer the GDS xGrind series. The xGrind Hydro has a hydraulic clamping mechanism and uses Schunk sleeves to clamp intermediate diameters. The xGrind HPS uses the same amazing HPS collets as the μGrind super chuck.
Finally, the Clamp Stick expanding mandrel is for ID clamping applications.
