Expanded Line of Swiss-Style Workholding Solutions

Hardinge, an international provider of advanced metalcutting machine tool solutions and accessories, has announced the expansion of its Swiss-style collets and bushings production cell.

"Hardinge is a leading U.S. provider of Swiss workholding products, providing a large selection of workholding for Swiss-type lathes and advancing its manufacturing capabilities to meet the precise machining needs of a variety of different industries," said a company spokesperson.

Over the past several years, CNC Swiss-type lathes, predominant in medical and electronics applications, have become increasingly popular across a variety of other applications. Swiss-type lathes are able to produce complex, high accuracy finished parts with short lead times due to their shorter cycle times. They are effective for any application that produces long, slender parts due to the process of feeding the stock through a guide bushing.

Hardinge Inc. Workholding Division is meeting these increasing needs by expanding its Swiss product line to include the following products:

  • Carbide lined extended nose collets
  • Overgrip collets for all manufacturers
  • Bar loader collets
  • ER collets
  • Meehanite guide bushings
  • Adaptive guide bushings.

"In addition, Hardinge has continuously improved its manufacturing capabilities over the past year with advanced technologies," said the spokesperson. The company recently added a lapping machine to improve surface finishes, a new USACH grinder to improve accuracy and consistency, and additional equipment to increase capacity. "Due to its focus on continuous improvement, Hardinge has achieved quicker delivery times by holding more inventory, improving manufacturing processes and converting key product lines to be considered stocked items," added the spokesperson.

"The company's expanded product lines and improvements have led to double digit year over year growth for Hardinge's Swiss workholding products, with sales up over 21% in 2017 and on pace for another growth year in 2018," said the spokesperson.

"Hardinge is one of the only companies that can meet the growing needs of job shops in industries such as medical and aerospace that need to manufacture high precision small parts," said Rick Schonher, Product Manager for Hardinge Workholding Division. "Our Swiss-style high quality collets meet these requirements, providing a consistent quality at a competitive price."
