Precision Arbors and Chucks
Hydra-Lock has developed three classes of hydraulic arbors and chucks that are designed hold tools, parts and other work, whether they are the most simple or the most complex. We have been designing innovative work-holding solutions since 1947, and have continually led the industry in reliability and accuracy.

Our most recent innovations in hydraulic work-holding technology are Hydra-Lock’s Conform-A-Chuck® and Conform-A-Arbor®. These revolutionary new work-holding products utilize Hydra Fibre®, a special plastic material that has the ability to hold an out-of-round part effectively averaging the center line for the part without rounding it up.

Custom Tool Holders
Hydra-Lock produces a wide range of standard and adjustable tool holders to mount just about any type of tool.
Custom Work Supports (Jacks)
Zero Deflection - Unique hydraulic locking action prevents all axial movement
These custom work supports (jacks) have these common features:
- Ported for single or multiple operation
- Series or parallel circuits from single hydraulic line
- Replaceable plungers can be designed for your part
- Protected from coolant and chips
- Very high support values depending on hydraulic input
- Instantaneous action from a single valve
If you’re in a business that produces parts too big for standard machines (i.e. nuclear closures), bring a machine to the part! Satellite Tools can eliminate the need to bring a 700-ton closure to a super-sized boring mill, which saves your company precious time and money.
