Speedgrip’s multi-grip collet is capable of gripping multiple bores simultaneously for parts that are turned, faced or bored. The collet provides a 360-degree grip and a strong pullback action, as an alternative to a three-jaw chuck with three-point contact. The double-taper collet is ground for one bore size on one end and the other bore size on the other. As each end of the tapered collet expands, it grips its respective bore and continues to move until both bores are gripped simultaneously, with equal pressure, with a strong pullback action. The tolerance of the bores can vary. The collet is said to provide greater part engagement, rigidity and operation feasibility. It eliminates chatter and enables more aggressive machining, reducing cycle times and machining more parts per shift.

Cutting Tools Resist Heat, Hold Size

With so much happening in a busy show year between NPE2018, Amerimold 2018 and IMTS 2018, MoldMaking Technology is revisiting some of the technology that was on display. In case you missed it: At IMTS 2018, Crystallume had its Demon line of cutting tools, which is designed for extended cuts in difficult materials.
