Boschert, Loerrach, Germany, offers a round/square seat geometry for its safety chucks called the VT-7 style. This new style separates the load of the roll from its torque, resulting in extended life for the roll shaft journal and for the seat of the safety chuck. The bar rides on the seat during operation because the load of the roll is on its round segment. This translates into a smoother, vibration-free run every time.

The chucks are easily retrofitted by simply removing the existing Boschert VT insert and installing the VT-7. Turnaround time for the change is less than five minutes.

Boschert has also introduced the fourth generation of positive locks for its safety chucks, the Type IV. It is also more robust than any other Boschert lock. This feature can be ordered on the new safety chucks and is not intended to retrofit existing ones. Website:
