At Eastec in Booth 5453, Hardinge Inc. will be showcasing precision workholding products like spindle tooling for turning, milling, grinding, assembly, automation, inspection and process applications. Featured products include 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 company notes. The Hardinge FlexC collet system is an ideal substitute for three-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, the company states. 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.
