Machinable Expanding I.D. Collets

QCS Workholding LLC, manufacturer of the J-LOC Workholding products line, has added a machinable expanding I.D. collet. Until now, the J-LOC expanding I.D. collet had only been offered in a factory pre-machined version of its expanding I.D. collet.

The addition of the collet makes it possible for the end user to create custom configurations for their specific applications. Installation of the machinable I.D. collet is made simple by the use of a special wrench and collet clamp ring. "The collet may be clamped on the collet clamp ring and machined on the end user's machine, ensuring maximum concentric accuracy," said a company spokesperson. The J-LOC expanding I.D. collet design offers enhanced repeatability and rigidity. After being machined, the J-LOC I.D. collet may be moved from the lathe to a mill or grinder and maintain the same repeatable accuracy without re-machining. The collet is available now in the 5C collet configuration, soon to be available in 16C and 3J collet configurations.

The J-LOC machinable 5C I.D. collets are available for machinable sizes 3/8" diameter to 2" diameter. The 3J and 16C I.D. collet configurations will be available for machinable sizes from 3/8" diameter to 2.5" diameter. J-LOC workholding products are made in the USA.
