Hardinge, a global designer and manufacturer of machine tools and advanced workholding products, has been producing capsule collets for the world’s leading capsule manufacturers for the past 50 years. These partnerships have resulted in state-of-the-art collets for the production of capsule bodies and caps in sizes of #00, 0, 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5. Hardinge precision, hardened and ground collets assure reliability and long life for the medical and pharmaceutical industries. A polished radius nose on the collet reduces friction and eliminates marking, while allowing you to take full advantage of your production capabilities with reduced downtime. Collets are 4-split or 3-split, depending on size, and are stocked in their Elmira, New York facility for worldwide distribution. Hardinge also designs and manufactures custom gripping devices for turning, milling, grinding, process and assembly applications.
