Hardinge Inc. will be showcasing precision workholding products at EASTEC in building 5, booth #5453 at the Eastern States Exposition Center in Springfield, Massachusetts May 14-16, 2013. Hardinge manufactures spindle tooling for turning, milling, grinding, assembly, automation, inspection and process applications.
Featured products include their FlexC™ Vulcanized Collet Systems for CNC lathes. The flexible collet heads can be changed in less than 10 seconds using a manual compression wrench. The Hardinge FlexC collet system is an ideal substitute for 3-jaw chucks because it weighs less, has a lower profile and changes over much faster. The collet head has a gripping range of ±.020" (.5mm) of its nominal size to allow for variation in bar stock without having to change the collet.
Hardinge Sure-Grip® Expanding Collet Systems mount directly to the machine spindle or collet styles mount in the spindle of Hardinge collet-ready CNC lathes, collet blocks, indexers and rotary tables. There are no costly adapters to mount the arbor onto the spindle. One inexpensive self-contained unit provides the lowest-priced ID grip collet assembly in the industry. Standard products are in stock to grip inside diameters from 1/8" up to 4", while custom manufacturing is available for non-round shapes, deep grips or with a recessed draw plug for gripping to the bottom of the bore.
Also on display are Hardinge Rotary Tables and Indexers for single and multi-part positioning. All Hardinge rotary products feature their exclusive collet-ready spindle that provides a wide variety of part gripping options to handle most part shapes and materials. These rugged and reliable units serve as workhorses in the industry.
Hardinge manufactures Swiss-type headstock collets, pickoff collets, carbide guide bushings, bar loader collets and custom manufactured solutions for Swiss turning. Collets are ground to precise size and TIR to meet precision machining requirements with a standard accuracy that rivals the industry.
