The Centrotec chuck is a unique component of the Festool drilling system. This quick release chuck provides two points of contact for Centrotec bits, allowing them to extend directly into the drill spindle so they serve as an extension of the motor, improving controllability and torque for true running precision that is ten times more accurate than a standard chuck. It's compact design significantly decreases the necessary drilling/driving clearance.
The greatest benefit of the Centrotec system is the substantial time savings it provides. Change between drill, countersink and screwdriver bits in seconds with its straight forward pull back, quick release mechanism.
The Centrotec chuck can be used with all Festool drills fitted with a FastFix interface. Centrotec bits are also compatible with standard chucks.
