KEB CUSTOM COLLETS & GUIDE BUSHINGS


GENERAL INFORMATION:
Custom collets and guide bushings are available per your specification.  They command longer lead times and higher prices, since each item is made per custom specifications.  Custom collets and guide bushings are manufactured from the same materials and held to the same rigorous tolerances as our standard products.  Our engineering department is here to help in designing the perfect custom product for your application. 

When it comes to customs, your imagination is the limit.  Here are a few examples of custom configurations:
 
     Bearing Relief Chamfer per Depth   Chamfer per �
     Radius Land Length   Counterbore
     Eccentric Eccentric Step   Elliptical
     Extrusion Single Step   Double Step
     Triple Step Step Nose   Threaded Bore
     Taper Keyway   2 Slot
     Overgrip    

When it comes to customs, clarity is critical, so it is preferred for you  to supply a print.  Errors happen when assumptions are made so be sure to provide us with the most amount of information possible.

EXTENDED NOSE PICK-OFF COLLETS & EXT. TAPERED NOSES:
Extended Nose and Extended Tapered Nose Collets are smooth bore unless otherwise stated.  An "A" dimension is required for all Extended Nose Collets.  A "B" dimension is required, in addition to an "A" dimension, when ordering all Extended Nose Tapered Collets.  An angle may be used in lieu of a "B" dimension.  Please click on the following link for diagrams and a fax Request for Quote sheet:

Although rare, Extended Nose Carbide Guide Bushings are available as special orders.  They are designed to prevent deflection caused by back working.  An "A" dimension is required for the length of the extension and a "B" dimension is required the nose diameter.  Please call to talk with an engineer for further details.

COUNTERBORE COLLETS & MULTIPLE BORE COLLETS:
A variety of Counterbore Collets are available including Standard, Counterbore Extended Nose and Counterbore Extended Tapered Nose.  An undercut is recommended to seat your part correctly.  "D" and "E" dimensions are required for the two bore diameters.  A "C" dimension is required for the depth of the larger bore.  Please click on the following link for diagrams and a fax Request for Quote sheet:

EXTRUSIONS:
A customer supplied drawing is required for all Extrusions.  To assure the highest caliber product, it is requested that a stock sample be sent with the purchase order.

ORDERING INSTRUCTIONS:
In order to provide you the exact custom collet for your specialty application, it is critical that all of the information is accurately represented and understood by both parties.  Please copy the appropriate drawing and fill in the required information and fax it to 440.953.9209 or email it to sales@kebkollets.com.  In some instances, a conference call may be required by our personnel to clarify any issues.



 

 
QUALITY

Standard KEB Collets are machined to a tolerance of .0005” or better Total Indicator Reading (TIR).

Standard KEB Guide Bushings are precision ground to a coaxiality of .0002” or better.  Coaxiality is a more rigorous measurement than TIR. 

Coaxiality tests the concentricity of multiple ID and OD points
simultaneously and their interrelationship with each other, a standard which redefines the industry.
