Chick Workholding

Accurate and secure workholding is the key to increased productivity and quality

Chick Workholding Solutions was founded in 1984 and introduced the concept of two station clamping and has continued pursuing quality, innovation and productivity solutions; working in partnership with customers to solve machining challenges and improve operations.

Chick’s goal is to increase productivity by reducing the inefficiencies of CNC machining centres by:

  • Improving efficiency.
  • Amortizing tool change time.
  • Increase accuracy.
  • Increase flexibility.
  • Maximise the quantity of parts presented to the spindle.


Chick System 5 provides totally integrated systems – jaws, faceplates, jaw carriers and more are all designed with a QwikChange Interface, so workholding can be moved from machine to machine, vertical to horizontal, fixture to fixture and be set up again with maximum efficiency.

Chick can help save time and money through workholding excellence.
