Aerospace materials and superalloys pose tough machining problems. The supply chain demands almost impossible levels of tolerance. And in case that’s not enough of a challenge, can you please add mirror finish?
 It’s no secret that titanium, Inconel, nickel-based superalloys, and tungsten-molybdenum alloys are difficult to machine. But aircraft engines, landing gear, and hydraulic parts must be made of these various materials. Should you cut it or grind it? And why?

Hardinge Inc. (www.hardinge.com), the world’s largest manufacturer of spindle tooling, began production of collets in the 1890s for use on bench lathes making parts for the watchmaking and lens industries. It is believed that the “C” designation for their first 5C collets came from the name of the Cataract waterfalls that could be viewed from the factory grounds of the Hardinge Brothers Company in Chicago, Illinois where they manufactured precision Cataract bench lathes.

Collet blocks can be used horizontally or vertically on mill tables, jig grinders, flat or angled fixture plates, tombstones or rotary trunnions. Group them together hydraulically or pneumatically for high-production multi-part machining. Part gripping sizes range from .008” (1C collet) up to 6” (step chuck) in diameter. Hex, square and custom-shaped collets are available to hold a variety of shapes. Hardinge offers several models of collet blocks that use standard collets that you may already be using elsewhere in your shop — 1C, 3C, 5C, 16C, 3J, 22J, 35J, and FlexC 42 & 65mm.

Machine Capability of a Super-Precision® (SP) Turning Center may be, in general, defined by three major characteristics: productivity, accuracy, and reliability. This means structural and kinematical components of the SP machine must be stiff, accurate, and reliable for the machine tool to be adequate for the task. For this reason, Hardinge Inc. has established assembly procedures and developed theoretical and experimental tools to design and deliver to the market a family of cost effective machines that will perform as required by customer machining processes.

Parts remain clamped if loss of air occurs when using the Hardinge 5C failsafe collet block (closer). Air is required during setup to receive the part, whether using a single collet block or a sub-plate of multiple blocks. After setup, a unique spring design holds the workpiece with 1,760 pounds of optimum 5C drawbar force. The spring-to-close design provides the opportunity to use pallet shuttles without the need for air or hydraulic lines. If loss of air should occur during the machining process, parts will remain clamped and concentricity will be maintained without downtime, waste or injury.

If you’ve been using fixtures to grip parts on your rotary device, you already know how much operator intervention is required for setting up, clamping and locating the part, and changing from one job to another. And let’s not forget about the design time and machining involved to produce the fixture itself. All of this accumulated time lengthens the production time and increases the cost of the part. Are there any other alternatives?

      A high quality collet is desirable when it comes to precision machining of small parts for the medical and aerospace industries. For a quality part that meets high-precision specifications, you need a burr-free collet with guaranteed concentricity. This collet would be finish ground to provide a smooth and concentric gripping area (order hole) for the bar stock or work piece. Hardinge Swiss-style collets meet all of these requirements. They are inspected on a Hardinge SUPER-PRECISION® (.000015” TIR) headstock before reaching the stockroom.
