Parlec P3 ER colletsClick image to enlarge

Parlec has released the new P3 ER collet system, the first coated ER collet system according to the company.

The P3 (Parlec Pro Precision) ER collets feature an anti-friction coating on the 30° face of the collet that interfaces with the collet nut when tightening during tool setup. According to Parlec, the anti-friction coating reduces radial distortion helping improve run-out.

The new collets have a repeatable accuracy of 0.0001 in. and are sealed for coolant pressures up to 2,000 psi due to a special slotting design. They are available in ER11, 16, 20, 25, 32 and 40 in inch and metric sizes and are meant to be used with on-size tooling. The P3 ER collets may be used in any ER collet chuck to improve accuracy and cutting performance.
