Hardinge Collet Blocks grip round, hex, square or odd-shaped parts and can be used horizontally or vertically on mill tables, flat or angled fixture plates, tombstones or rotary trunnions. Sizes are available from the 1C micro medical machining industry up to the 35J mid-range automotive and aerospace industries. Modular collets blocks are compact with a low profile for increased axis travel and for maximum layout of the workspace. A collet can provide certain advantages over a jaw chuck, vise and other clamping methods. There are some advantages of using Collet Blocks instead of a standard vise or 3-jaw chuck. A collet automatically centers the workpiece for reduced setup time. Centers remain fixed when the fixture is removed from the machine table. A collet provides equal gripping pressure around the circumference of the part unlike a standard vise or a 3-point contact jaw chuck. Thin-wall parts or delicate materials may crush or distort in a standard vise or jaw chuck. Collets ordered with serrations can add additional gripping power to prevent push-back and radial slipping. Extended-nose collets can provide additional tool clearance. Some collet blocks accept expanding collets to grip a part at the internal diameter. Collet blocks are modular for arranging on a pallet for multiple part processing and quick pallet changeover. Collet blocks and rotary trunnions can be ordered online at www.hardingetooling.com.
Need collet capability on your jaw chuck lathe? Hardinge HCAC® Collet Chucks offer collet capability for higher precision and accuracy when you need it. Increase productivity, capability and control when compared to 3-Jaw chucks: • Faster job changeover using collets • Higher spindle speeds - reduced cycle times • Larger work envelope • Achieve higher precision • Improved concentricity for optimum part roundness • Exact part length control • Interchangeable Style "S" master pads accommodate a wide range of workpiece sizes and configurations Order Hardinge collet chucks online at www.hardingetooling.com
