Zagar Vert / Horz. Work Holding 5-C Collet Fixture

Product Announcement from Zagar Incorporated

Zagar Vert / Horz. Work Holding 5-C Collet Fixture-Image

Introducing a new, manually operated, work holding collet fixture from Zagar Inc.

Model No. 707-340

Collet size: # 5-C standard collets for O.D. clamping or # 5-C mandrel type collets for I.D. clamping.

Mounting options: Vertical or horizontal

Housing: Cast iron for durability with precision crossed keyways for ease of mounting fixture and centering collet center line in vertical or horizontal applications. Since it's cast iron, the housing enables higher clamping forces and greater stability during machining operations.

Fixed length collet mounting: 5-C collet or expanding mandrel is fixed mounted in base of the fixture. This is sometimes termed "dead length" collet actuation since there is no linear movement of the collet along it's axis. The collet remains stationary when clamped and unclamped by the precision steel actuating sleeve.

Accuracy: Work piece centering repeatability within 0.001"

Clamp handle: Cast iron for durability and high clamping force. Designed for manual operation. Clamp / unclamp is cam actuated by precision machined steel cams. The actuating cams are designed to mechanically lock the handle when in the clamped position.

Coolant flush: Each fixture is designed for piping coolant thru a ΒΌ NPT hole in the side of the housing. This feature enables coolant to flow thru the fixture and flush out chips in machining operations with high chip volume.

Low Maintenance: New fixture design is simple to disassemble for cleaning and lubrication when required. The fixture consists of only 6 components.

Basic dimensions:

Fixture height: 4.38"

Width: 5.00"

Length including handle: 8.00"

Approx. weight: 22 pounds

Manufacturing work holding collet fixtures for industry since 1938


Zagar Inc. is a Machine Tool Builder specializing in the mass production and/or the qualification of holes. With our crank style design multiple spindle drilling and tapping head Zagar can design machinery with more rotating cutting tools in a smaller area. Our machines are used in the automotive, aerospace, electrical, electronic, propulsion, off-road construction equipment, hydraulic, pneumatic and general job shop industries to name only a few.

We have produced or qualified holes in most ferrous or non-ferrous materials. The design of our machinery has resulted in the development of stand-alone modular component product lines. These product lines are Multiple Spindle Drill/Tap Heads; air, hydraulic, cam, servo driven feed units and air, hydraulic or mechanical Workholding fixtures. Controls for these machines range from the conventional electric circuitry to fully integrated solid state as needed for PC compatibility. Assistance and support is also available for your in house needs.

History / Location: Since 1937 Zagar has offered machinery and assistance to customers throughout the world. Our plant is located at 24000 Lakeland Blvd. in Euclid, Ohio. Euclid is a suburb of Cleveland, Ohio in the United States of America. It is between the East 222nd St. and Babbitt Rd. exits on the south marginal of route I-90. The two buildings total 54,000 square feet of manufacturing facility.

Equipment: Zagar's Design and Manufacturing Departments are centered around AutoCAD version 14. We also incorporate solid modeling in our designs using Mechanical Desktop 3.0. Our general machining operations are numerically controlled (CNC). General processing and inventory is all controlled by computers. Our Assembly and Shipping Departments have 10-ton crane capacity.

Employment: Zagar presently employs 30 people. We average 45 hours per week with two shifts; expandable with overtime when necessary. The plant is normally open from 6:00 AM until 12.00 PM midnight. Office hours are 8:00 AM until 5:00 PM Monday through Friday except for Holidays.

Our Quality System, as defined in our manual, is designed to direct our efforts toward continuous improvement in everything we do. By identifying responsibilities and practices to follow, it moves away from control by inspection toward prevention of errors and corrective action to eliminate the cause of problems.

Our commitment to quality must extend to all aspects of the business, not just to the quality of our products and services. It is imperative that we develop an understanding of our quality system, support our Quality Policy and be involved in the improvement process so we will continue to deliver superior products and services. Our commitment must extend not only to doing our jobs well, but also to finding better ways to do our jobs so our customers will continue to identify Zagar, Inc. as their preferred supplier of Machine Tool systems and components.
