Lexair Inc.’s Next-generation Collet Closer Offers Flexibility and Functionality 

LEXINGTON, KY (July 30, 2021) – Lexair Inc. announced their next-generation collet closer today, the Flex Grip™ Collet Closer, which features an improved compact design supporting the ability to be clustered onto a fixture plate.

The Flex-Grip™ Collet Closer utilizes Hardinge® FlexC collets and other quick-change collet brands.

This product features a redesigned collet closer, newly developed modular manifold blocks, proven connector bushings, a simplified disconnect receiver, and remodeled hydraulic power unit to work seamlessly together providing a simple, compact, and dependable workholding solution.

The collet block capitalizes on the advantages of the Flex style collets resulting in a low-profile fixture with the ability to change over collets in seconds. The low-profile components minimize the use of the machining center’s Z-axis travel. 

The Flex-Grip™ Collet Closer is currently available in 42mm with plans to expand the product line to include 65mm and 80mm sized collets.

Lexair Inc. based in Lexington, Ky, was founded in 1977 as a manufacturer of high-pressure compressors and stainless-steel valves for the United States Navy. Today, Lexair has evolved into a World Class Manufacturer of Fluid Power Products, Compressors, and Machine Tool Accessories.
