Platinum Tooling Technologies distributes products from Tecnicrafts Industries, a manufacturer of collets and guide bushings for Swiss-type CNC lathes.

Tecnicrafts, located in India, manufactures collets and guide bushings for use on Marubeni Citizen-Cincom, Tsugami, Star, Tornos, Hanwha, Traub, Hardinge, Manurhin-Kmx, Miyano, Nomura and other Swiss-type machine brands.

The collets are offered in steel- and carbide-lined versions with grooved, smooth and serrated bores in standard and long-nose types. Special collets such as V-line, U-line and over-grip collets are designed for positive gripping on delicate parts without leaving marks. Ultra precision (XP) W-type collets are available for tool grinding applications on machines from such brands as Rollomatic, Anca and Ewag. Other collets offered include 5C and 16C types. 

Tecnicrafts’ guide bushings have a carbide lining, providing afinish bore with a roughness value of less than 0.4 micron. These guide bushings include U-line, extended-nose and long carbide bores (Max Land) for special turning applications.

All collets and guide bushings are offered in standard and ultra-precision grades. The bore profile includes round, square, hexagon, rectangular and profile bores, as per user drawings.

  • A Study Of The Steady Rest

    When the length and stiffness of a workpiece make it difficult to machine without distorting or deflecting the part, many manufacturers turn to the steady rest as a workpiece support device. This is especially true for long axles, shafts and similar parts used in automotive or heavy equipment applications, and in oil drilling components. The most common application is to support a workpiece during turning or milling and, increasingly, during secondary operations such as ID drilling, boring and producing end face bolthole patterns.
