Collet Adapters

HCAC Collet Adaptation Chucks will adapt most spindles to accept C-series pullback collets, J-series pullback collets, stationary B-series collets, style-S master collets, Collet Adaptersstep chucks and closers and dead-length collets. They make it possible to increase machining capabilities by substituting a collet chuck over a jaw chuck for part diameters up to 6” (152.4 mm)   depending on the spindle size. The benefits of doing this include: lighter weight, no hoist required to mount on spindle; faster job setup time; faster acceleration and deceleration due to less weight and smaller diameter; higher spindle speeds for reduced cycle times; optimum gripping with higher precision capability; ability to use master collets and pads; improved part concentricity over jaw chucks; elimination of time spent on boring jaws; no hazard of jaws flying off.
