From your spindle to the tools it is paramount that the collet be made of proper materials and is heat treated to exacting specifications to meet repetitive cycling longevity, since it is the interface between supplied power and precision work piece positioning. We design and manufacture collets during the course of our chuck design and build, to fit your specific needs. Including features like Positioning Keys, Splines, Tool and geometric feature clearances, or odd shaped geometries. Coupled with additional surface preparations like serrations and hard coat finishes for additional wear resistance, or carbide impregnation to aid in grip. Where possible we also design our collets with cost saving replaceable Pads or Jaws, so when the grip surfaces wear it is not necessary to replace the entire collet, this allows you to control your cost while keeping extra perishable components on hand for quick change out, thereby reducing down time.
