Magnetic Workholding since 1896

Magnetic workholding chucks have been a cornerstone of Walker Magnetics ever since Oakley S. Walker invented the first magnetic chuck back in 1896. The benefits are obvious: Magnetic chucks offer a reliable solution for fabricators who want to grind or mill steel workpieces without damage that can come from mechanical clamping and chuck devices.

 

A Commitment to Precision and Quality

Walker engineers and manufactures the highest quality electromagnetic, electro-permanent, and permanent magnetic chucks for grinding, machining, milling, turning, EDM, and molding applications. We also offer special chuck designs to meet our customers’ unique application needs.

neomicro

NEOMICRO

Permanent magnetic micro pitch design chucks that are ideal for reliable clamping of very thin and small components for precision grinding. It holds large workpieces as well.
TBP

TBP

Transverse bar pole chucks specially designed for smaller, thinner workpieces and tool steel.

Rotary Chucks

 

NeoStar

NEOSTAR

Permanent rotary magnetic chucks that have a radial pole design with neodymium (rare earth) magnet for holding rings and bearing races, as well as solid rounds.
Mulitpole

MULTI-POLE ROTARY CHUCK

Rotary electromagnetic and electro-permanent chucks are made in radial pole multi-coil design for use in hard turning and free state grinding. The radial pole design is recommended for holding circular workpieces such as rings and discs.
