Romeo High School Question - CNC CAT 40 ER Collet chucks for new CNC MILL

Hello all,

We were able to get a grant to allow our High School Machine Shop purchase a CNC Lathe and a CNC Mill.  The Mill uses CAT 40 ER.  Is there a certain brand I should be looking at or certain ones I should be staying away from?  There is quite a variety of pricing difference in brands.  We are just a High School shop and will not be running heavy production.  I hope to get good quality durable quality that doesn't break the bank.

I would reach out to PTSolutions.  They have very knowledgeable staff and might be able to offer an educational discount.

Hi Daniel,

We use a brand called Techniks which work very well in our CNC mills.
