Seeking to make the axial pressure more consistent, Southern Illinois Crankshaft, Inc. conferred with Riten Industries Inc., a developer and manufacturer of live and dead centers, face drivers, collet chucks and collets. Riten offers standard products, as well as application-specific workholding systems. According to Travis Horton, Riten vice president of sales, "Half our business is special workholding."
In response to SIC's inquiry, Riten produced a linear-compensating live center designed to be clamped in the chuck if the W-axis spindle. The device consists of a straight-shank live center that fits into a cylindrical housing against a spring. An access plug at the rear of the housing enables the spring to be changed easily. Riten included four different springs, color-coded to identify their deflection rates. The system provides 0.500" of travel. When a part is put in the machine, it's set up with 0.250" of preload, making 0.250" of compensation available. more.
High-volume turning requires tough, consistently accurate collets and collet chucks. What better name to trust than Riten, respected around the world for quality work holding products.
Riten Collet Chucks are precision ground with guaranteed repeatability of .0002" TIR. Tolerances are held uniformly from the mounting to the working collet taper. Our products include both power and manual chucks with dead length or pull back operation. These chucks are ideal for first or second operation chucking. more.
