Collets for single- and multi-spindle Automatics
Hardinge manufactures workholding solutions for Acme-Gridley, Brown & Sharpe, Davenport, Gildemeister, Index, New Britain, Schutte, Tornos Bechler and most other brands of automatic lathes. Solid collets, burring collets, feed fingers, bushings, master collets and pads are available from stock.
HQC Quick-Change Collet Systems
Change from one size collet to another size in less than 20 seconds! True parallel clamping minimizes stock "push back" and requires less draw bar force to achieve the same gripping capability as conventional collets. Less draw bar force greatly reduces the breakage of closing fingers and pins common when bar varies beyond the range of a standard solid collet. Systems are available for Acme-Gridley, Cone, New Britain and Wickman machines.
Turret Lathe Collets
Hardinge manufactures collets for Bardons & Oliver, Foster, Gisholt, Jones & Lamson, Morey, Pratt & Whitney, Warner & Swasey and most other brands of turret lathes. Choose from solid collets, master collets & pads and emergency collets & pads.
Hardinge offers stock delivery on standard round, hex and square sizes. Non-round stock, special shapes and stepped-hole collets are available. All hex and square collets have two keyways, one to the corner and one to the flat, for synchronization. Custom collet manufacturing is available for Hydromat and other rotary transfer machines.x and square sizes. Non-round stock, special shapes and stepped-hole collets are available.
