It can be expanded easily to an autonomous grinding unit. The Hauser 2000 not only meets the demand of the market for combined grinding and hard milling on a single jig grinder, but also enables further improvements in machining precision to meet future requirements. The main technical feature is the dual-frame design, which significantly increases the rigidity of the grinder and therefore ensures even higher precision. In this box-type design, the machining head is positioned centrally within the machine frame, thus enabling machining forces to be optimally controlled. Almost no transverse forces are created – the prerequisite for ultra-high geometric precision machining. Since the tool machining point is located at the center of the machine, practically all thermal expansion effects are eliminated.

                With higher dynamic axis movements and significantly greater rigidity, the Hauser 2000 gives the best possible conditions for finishing with hard precision milling.The overall result is a significant increase in productivity not only for the ultra-precise grinding processes on the machine but also for hard milling.

Every collet and guide bushing is inspected on a Hardinge Super-Precision (.000015″ TIR) headstock before reaching the stockroom. Hardinge manufactures to Swiss quality, in the USA, for all brands of Swiss-style machines and cam-operated lathes. Hardinge round Swiss Guide Bushings are carbide-lined to keep the stock clean and unmarked. Hardinge manufactures bar feed collets for FMB, IMECA, LNS and Robobar bar feeders. Collets available for other brands on request. Hardinge offers a complete line of tool holders, tap holders, toolholder collets, tap collets and bushings that can be used on Swiss-type lathes. You’ll find reliable and economical solutions for back-end, sub-spindle and end-working slides.

                                      • Title

                                      • Hardinge® Sure-Grip® Expanding Collet Systems offer solutions to difficult machining problems for turning, milling, grinding, assembly and automation applications. Hardinge is the expert when it comes to exact part length control, patenting the first Dead-Length 5C and 16C collets used for high-production manufacturing. Our Sure-Grip Expanding Collet Systems have true part length control built into its double-angle design, assuring exact workpiece lengths by locating the part against the face of the arbor or against a machineable work stop. The collet draws the workpiece firmly against the stop, producing an extremely stable part. The results are heavier cuts, better surface finishes, and closer tolerances. Long parts can be easily machined due to this added stability. Sure-Grip Collets can be custom manufactured for special applications for spindles, sub-spindles and mill tables. Pick-off collets are frequently engineered for Swiss and multi-spindle machines. Splined or serrated surfaces can be made for special grips and shapes, while recessed draw-plug styles might solve your short gripping problem.

                                      • Toolholder Collets and Bushings Product

                                      • Hardinge® HQC Quick-Change collets can be changed from one size to another in less than 20 seconds. The HQC System requires less draw bar force to adequately grip the bar, greatly reducing the breakage of closing fingers and pins common when the bar varies beyond the range of a standard solid collet or master collet with pads. Eliminating the need to change collets due to normal variations in bar stock, greatly reduces the downtime normally required. Since solid collets and master collets are of a one-piece construction, considerable force is required to flex the leaves of a solid collet and bring the gripping surface in contact with the workpiece OD. Because there are no leaves in the HQC system, additional gripping pressure is directly applied to the workpiece. Higher feed rates and higher spindle speeds are possible. Because of the extra gripping force, tool life increases and parts come off the machine quicker. There is no collet shank. Therefore, the collet segments remain parallel to the stock even when there are variations in the stock size. Parallel clamping minimizes stock “push back” and requires less draw bar force to achieve the same gripping capability as conventional collets. The HQC patented operator-replaceable slot-seal system eliminates the need to return the collet to the manufacturer to have the seals changed.
