The company will showcase its FlexC vulcanized collet systems, which are designed as a substitute for three-jaw chucks for use with CNC lathes. The flexible collet heads can be changed with a manual compression wrench in less than 10 sec., the company says. The collet head has a gripping range of ±0.020" (0.5 mm) of its nominal size to accommodate variations in barstock without the need to change the collet.
The company also will display its Sure-Grip expanding collet systems, rotary tables and indexers.
