We continually manufacture collets and feed fingers to fit a wide range of machines. Quite often we only need to know the type of machine and the collet size required, making the ordering process quick and easy for our customers. In addition we also manufacture specialist and bespoke collets which have been designed for a specific purpose by our customers.
As with all mechanical products, collets and feed fingers can get damaged or worn. For this reason, we offer a refurbishment service which can save money and production down time. Collets which have been considered beyond repair are often brought back into good working order by re-grinding, re-spreading, etc
We offer a modification service where collets and feed fingers are modified to hold different sizes or specific components. Customers regularly supply us with their surplus collets and feed fingers for modification to a new size. This option often proves to be very cost effective compared to purchasing new.
We can supply common types of collets like the R8 and 5C ranges as well as other workholding and toolholding products. Most of these are available within short lead times and are competitively priced.
Second Hand Supplies
We have a limited amount of second hand stock available at favourable prices. Spring collets for common types of machines and multibores are often purchased by our customers when second hand products are acceptable. This is a very common service for "first op" machining.
We receive numerous enquiries from our customers relaying their particular problems and workholding requirements. We are always happy to advise wherever we can and work with our customers to resolve their problems. Sometimes this can be a simple modification to design or a more scientific change to the heat treatment process.
