Accraline’s precision face plates provide more surface area and fixturing capability than a standard lathe chuck. Usually used on vertical lathes and indexable tables, a face plate uses clamps and/or movable jaws instead of standard keyed chucks or collets. This allows for more flexibility on the size and shape of the work to be turned. We offer aluminum face plates, which can be used to reduce total weight on your equipment. Or, steel face plates, which can be used to provide extra rigidity for your project. Cast iron is also available.
