Lexair high pressure hydraulic collet closers
feature all steel construction and operating pressures to 5000 PSI. The
units accept "5C", "16C", "3J", "22J" or "35J" style collets. All models
feature double acting operation and fixed-length design to keep the collet
and parts being held stable to maintain a fixed height from part to part.
Standard features include reamed orientation holes in the base for
mounting and the ability to be used in multiple configurations with
connector bushings that eliminate external plumbing between units. Holding
forces generated by the drawtube are 1.9 times the line pressure applied
so extremely high clamping forces can be generated. All models are
supplied with a matching collet wrench.
Lexair can supply precision machined standard
collets, master collets and pads, emergency collets, serrated collets plus
uniquely shaped collets by special order.
