Hunter installs state-of-the-art collet-manufacturing cell!

June 13, 2016

St. Louis, MO - 

 

Collet Manufacturing with Hunter Engineering!

To support Hunter’s growing high-precision wheel balancer business, Hunter Engineering now manufactures collets in-house with the installation of a state-of-the-art collet-manufacturing cell in the St. Louis-area factory. This cell includes two twin-spindle lathes, induction heat-treating device, laser etching and a machine-tending robot.

Hunter’s dual-taper collets provide ultimate centering performance to ensure a better balance than traditional cones. Dual-taper collets are less likely to “bottom out” inside the wheel and guarantee spring pressure for proper centering force. Hunter’s premium BullsEye® collet kits provide comprehensive coverage for passenger-car and light-truck wheels.

With the installation of the collet manufacturing cell, Hunter now produces one dual-taper collet every 90 seconds. The new manufacturing cell also performs a 100% bore inspection so each Hunter collet is of the highest quality and will provide optimized centering during a balancing procedure.

Once completed, the dual-taper collets are sent to Hunter’s Raymond, Mississippi plant to join the new Road Force® Elite and other Hunter wheel balancers before they are shipped to customers.

All Hunter wheel balancers and dual-taper collets are made in the USA. The Road Force® Elite and other Hunter wheel balancers are constructed in Raymond, Mississippi.
