Using a three jaw chuck appears to be the simplest of procedures, but as the adage goes, looks can be deceiving.

Three jaw chucks have become one of the most fundamental lathe accessories, specifically when there is a large production run of cylindrical parts.

With the introduction of CNC machining, three jaw chucks became even more technically advanced, with the addition of hydraulic and pneumatic chucking systems. Because three jaw chucks can be automatically controlled, their place in the modern manufacturing environment is essential.
