Hydraulically Expanded Hub Cutters/Knife Holders

Hydraulic Hub

Machine Concepts designs and manufactures a full line of hydraulically expanded, self-clamping slitter and side trimmer hub cutters/knife holders. These hubs are high precision, have excellent holding power, are easy to use, and are ideal for quick tooling setups or changes. Because of the self-clamping functionality, these hubs can achieve very low tooling runouts. This is very important to customers that use ultra-high precision or carbide tooling. We also provide hydraulic systems used to expand the hubs and position measurement systems for accurate hub placement.
