Both the "5C" and "16C" feature double acting
operation and pull-back design. Each is supplied with a matching collet
The "5C" model is an all steel unit designed for
use in pneumatic service to 150 PSI or hydraulic service to 750 PSI.
Standard "5C" collets, step chucks and closers for holding parts up to 6
inches in diameter plus expanding collets for I.D. holding can be applied
from this unit. Drawtube force is 7.5 times the line pressure applied
which maximizes the gripping force available from this compact unit. This
model can be easily combined in multiple configurations via the use of
connector bushings that eliminate the external plumbing between units.
The "16C" model features an A2-5 spindle nose
that accepts "16C" collets up to 1- 5/8 inches, "16C" step chucks up to 6
inches in diameter plus expanding nose "16C" collets for I.D. holding of
parts. Applied line pressure is multiplied 22.5 times the inlet pressure
generating high drawtube forces. Maximum working pressure is 250 PSI in
pneumatic service or 400 PSI in hydraulic service. The units are machined
from aircraft quality aluminum and feature hardened steel bushings for
long lasting trouble free service.
Lexair can supply precision machined standard
collets, master collets and pads, emergency collets, serrated collets plus
uniquely shaped collets by special order.
