In a lathe, if the center doesn’t fit properly you typically have problems with taper and chatter. Despite generous tolerances when compared to grinding, the same problems arise with poorly fitting centers. A machine tool is only as accurate as its work holding allows.
Not only do we manufacture centers of the highest quality, we have the broadest product line in the industry. We’re the only live center manufacturer in the country who stocks live centers with Jarno and Browne & Sharpe tapers. We also offer a wider selection of Morse, Jarno and Browne & Sharpe taper dead centers than any of our competitors. Most of them only stock a limited selection of Morse tapers.
As the scale of a manufactured product increases, the work holding requirements change. At a certain point, the optimal taper changes from Morse to Metric. That’s why we provide both live and dead centers with Metric tapers as well.
We’re your work holding source, period. If you’ve got a hard to find taper, we either have it in stock or we can make it to order. We work hard to stay true to our motto: “Solutions, Not Excuses!”
