                  • STYLE S MASTERS AND PADS

                  • The Style “S” master collets and pads overcome all the problems associated with master collets. When loading bars, the rugged shoulder of the pad locates against the front of the groove in the master collet. There are no set screws or clamps to be damaged or loosened. When a part is machined, the working forces are against the rear shoulder of the pad which is located against the rear shoulder of the groove in the master collet. Again, there are no screws or clamps to wear or break. The clamp which holds the pads captivated in the collet literally floats longitudinally, assuring that there is never any pressure on the clamp. There are no holes in the OD of the master collet, or on the ID of the pads, resulting in maximum bearing on the workpiece and the spindle collet seat. When Style “S” collets are used, there will never be high spots on the spindle collet seat caused by the master collet and pad design. When selecting master collets from this catalog, remember the Style “S” design has been in existence for over 50 years and is the preferred system.
                  • STYLE B MASTERS AND PADS

                  • Style “B” master feed finger pads are uniquely designed and proven by over fifty years of use in the machine tool industry.

                  • 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.
