Pneumatic Collet Block offers fail-safe operation.
Air-open, spring-to-close 5C Collet Block bolts to machine table or sub-plate to hold wide range of parts. Standard 5C collets, step chucks, internal Sure-Grip collets, and manual chucks will thread into spindle nose. After setup, spring design holds workpiece at 1,800 lb optimum 5C drawbar force without use of air. Collet travel is adjustable with turn of wrench. Modular units can be used...Read More »
Lean Manufacturing Cell has 4 cutting zones.
Quest LMC42 self-contained manufacturing cell features 4 cutting zones that perform various machining operations. Tooling and spindle configurations cover full range of manufacturing solutions, enabling users to run one-piece lots, high-volume production, and transference of bars or slugs for completing parts in one setup. Zone 1 has fixed headstock, supporting bar work up to 1 5/8 in. dia with...Read More »
Force Limiting Step Chucks facilitate thin-wall turning.
Step Chucks 16C and 20C are engineered with force control to prevent crushing or distorting thin-wall parts during turning and grinding operations. Units mount directly to spindle and use spring-loaded design as primary closing mechanism. Force-limiting step chuck assembly adjusts grip while eliminating need to manually adjust draw bar force. Since proper grip force is predetermined and applied...Read More »
Indexing System has all-digital servo control.
Equipped with servo control that supports brush or brushless motor indexers, 5C indexer provides digital control with intelligent power module for cool and quiet operation. Product indexes at 360-Read More »
Tool Holding System suits Bridgeport and other knee mills.
Series R8 ER-style collet holders employ multi-slot design to provides maximum gripping force for efficient pushback control. Each holder accommodates various ER-style collets for fast tool-to-tool change. Maximum round-tool capacities are 3/8 in., 25/32 in., and 1 in. Locating surfaces are precision ground and each collet has total indicator reading of 0.0005 in. or less.Read More »
Collet Block accepts all collet shapes.
Model A2-5 16C collet block can be mounted on any horizontal or vertical machining center for assembly, inspection, and surface grinding applications. It accepts all standard 16C round, hexagon, square, and special-shape collets up to 8 in. dia, step chucks, and Sure-Grip-® expanding collet systems. Adapter allows 5C tooling to be used. Collet block is pneumatically actuated with manually...Read More »
Collets fit Swiss-type CNC lathes.
Bar Loader collets work in FMB, IEMCA, Ikura, Robobar and LNS bar loaders, along with remnant retraction collets for Lipe bar loaders. Headstock and sub-spindle collets and carbide guide bushings are also available.Read More »
Presetter reduces machine downtime during job setup.
Manual VDI tool presetter system works with horizontal and vertical turning lathes to allowing machine operators to measure tool position height and length outside of machines during cycling. Portable unit has 12 x 18 in. footprint that can be shared by operators. System includes 12 in. manual height gage, centerline block, granite surface plate, and choice of VDI 30 or 40 toolholder block.Read More »
Collets and Guide Bushings suit Swiss-type lathes.
Headstock and sub-spindle collets are ground to precise size and TIR to meet precision machining requirements. Carbide-lined, Swiss guide bushings keep stock clean and unmarked, and extended-nose collets are suited for pick-off work or to compensate for tooling interference. Heat-treated to 40 Rockwell at head, they also serve as emergency collets.Read More »
