Hardinge has been producing capsule collets for the leading capsule manufacturers in sizes of #00, 0, 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5. The company’s precision hardened and ground collets assure reliability and long life for the medical and pharmaceutical industries. A polished radius nose on the collet reduces friction and eliminates marking, while allowing you to take advantage of production capabilities with reduced downtime. Collets are four-split or three-split, depending on size and are stocked in its distribution center. Hardinge also designs and manufactures custom gripping devices for turning, milling, grinding, process and assembly applications.
