Sandvik Coromant's Corochuck 930 hydraulic chuck is available for Big Plus spindles
Sandvik Coromantcontact supplier
The Corochuck 930 — Sandvik Coromant’s high-precision hydraulic chuck — is now available for Big Plus spindle system users, providing a secure tooling performance in milling and drilling operations. The chuck is said to be ideal for meeting the demands for high run-out precision.
The design of the Corochuck 930 is said to ensure excellent torque transmission to improve the performance of solid-carbide endmills, drills and reaming tools.
When used with milling tools, low run-out of the cutter will also ensure consistent feed per tooth, resulting in predictable tool life and allowing component tolerances to be maintained more easily.
Furthermore, the performance of the Corochuck 930 can be repeated over multiple clamping cycles to retain high-quality component surfaces — the product is also designed with dampening features that serve to minimise vibration during the machining process.
The Corochuck 930 can be quickly tightened or released with a dedicated torque wrench, improving efficiency through fast and easy setups and changes. No other external equipment is required to clamp or unclamp the system.

Key features and benefits
- Optimised design of the brazed clamping membrane promotes ultra-secure clamping with two supports on each side (fulcrums)
- The chuck provides significantly less risk of tool pull-out
- It ensures excellent torque transmission to improve performance of solid-carbide endmills, drills and reaming tools
- When used with milling tools, low run-out of the cutter will also ensure consistent feed per tooth
- Its performance can be repeated over multiple clamping cycles to retain high-quality component surfaces
- It can be quickly tightened or released with a dedicated torque wrench, improving efficiency through fast and easy setups and changes
- Chuck holds tolerances within microns to improve tool precision, surface finish and productivity; precision run-out can be measured at less than 4μm at 2.5 x DC.
- It is suitable for machine tools including lathes, machining centres, multi-task machines and driven tools in turning centres and VTLs
- It is available in pencil, slender and heavy-duty design and is balanced according to DIN 69888
Sandvik Coromant has introduced a vibration damper that helps to maintain stable production during deep-hole machining (DHM) operations and to support increased machine tool utilisation.
Sandvik Coromant is offering an online tool recommendation service for production engineers looking to improve efficiency and agility in parting and grooving machining operations. Known as First Choice, the free e-service is part of the company’s strategy of combining the latest technologies with improved levels of support in order to deliver advanced parting and grooving solutions.
On 16–19 March in Sandviken, Sweden, Sandvik Coromant successfully hosted the first-ever Gear Summit. Twenty-five of the world-leading decision-makers and experts from the gear industry were invited to discuss the common challenges and the future of gear manufacturing.
SpiroGrooving — a method for seal ring grooves developed by Sandvik Coromant — is designed to ensure the high output of quality components and to meet tough security demands. Used with the CoroBore XL system, it utilises a spirograph toolpath to create close-tolerance seal ring grooves in a secure and productive way.
Sandvik Coromant is planning to highlight recent innovations developed with its technology partner Mitis at JEC Europe, which is due to take place on 10–12 March 2015. In addition, visitors to the show on 10 March are invited to attend a free presentation on the subject of vibration-assisted drilling in the Agora area at 11:00.
