FlexC 42 18MM Hex Serrated
Hardinge has invested in the latest vulcanized machines made by DESMA, a world leader in injection molding technology. The vulcanization process joins the collet segments together as a one-piece unit. Vulcanized rubber has elasticity for repeated opening and closing over the life of the collet that makes it ideal for a quick change product. It will not become brittle and is resistant to coolant. It also prevents chips from entering the collet system. Hardinge test results from repeated cycles of collet actuation assure long life of the vulcanization process.
Hardinge guarantees a collet head concentricity of .0002" (.005mm) TIR for round smooth after the segments are joined in the vulcanization process. Collets change in just seconds.
