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 CoroTurn 107 cutting units with high-pressure, high-precision nozzles to meet the challenges posed by the turning of slender components, including long chips, vibration and deflection. CoroTurn 107 with HP coolant will minimise the risk of insert breakages, chip jamming and machine stoppages.
Sandvik Coromant has introduced CoroMill 5B90, a high-performance tool for finishing aluminium components. The tool is suitable for typical automotive industry applications such as machining cylinder heads, gearboxes, valve blocks and motor block crankshaft and deck faces.
Sandvik Coromant has updated its CoroCut 1-2 system for rigid and rapid parting and grooving to feature spring clamp technology. This not only provides increased stability but eliminates the operator judgement required when using a torque wrench on conventional screw clamps.
Despite the significant investment that a new machine represents, the fact that around 70 per cent of machines are purchased un-tooled means that many manufacturers are still missing opportunities to reduce payback times and improve the return on investment (ROI) from their capital outlay. According to Sandvik Coromant, getting machine investment right from the start is the key to reducing payback times.
Sandvik Coromant has announced that its CoroTurn SL cutting heads now feature CoroTurn HP (high-precision) nozzles that direct cutting fluid precisely where it is needed — at the exact interface between the tool and the workpiece. This is said to ensure CoroTurn SL users can be assured of reliable chip breaking, which facilitates both good chip evacuation and extended tool life in back-boring operations.
