Thanksgiving is a time to reflect. It’s a time to count blessings and have an attitude of gratitude. So, when is the last time you told your collet wrench thanks? If you haven’t felt thankful for your collet wrench lately, you should. It’s one tool that’s only purpose is to make your life easier and your balance sheet healthier. It’s a great time to be thankful for the green shoots of growth in American manufacturing as well.
Why Use a Collet Wrench?
Face it, time spent tooling isn’t time spend machining. You want to work as efficiently as possible. A collet wrench makes you a quick change artist. Remove 5C or R8 collets from the nose of your mill with ease. You’ll get just the right amount of torque and you will get it quickly. Collets are perfect for holding tools because of their low runout (natural deviation caused by spin of tool). Runout is costly. If you want a healthy bottom line, you must always be on the lookout for ways to control runout. Control runout by using collets, and control wasted motion by using a collet wrench. Sound simple? It is! Just buy a Sierra-American collet wrench and put it to work.
Thankful for American Manufacturing
While you are giving out thanks, don’t forget to be thankful for a manufacturing economy that is continuing to recover. Forbes predicts small, but continued growth for 2018 and even more gains in 2019. Growth will continue in the oil and petrochemical sectors. If you machine parts for these sectors, the future looks bright.
If you are looking to purchase new machinery, 2018 might be a good time. Because capacity utilization is low, it’s a great time to shop equipment. Its a good time to shop financing as well.
American manufacturing is making a comeback and Sierra-American Multi-Systems is proud to play a part. We manufacture collet wrenches, saw arbors, multistops, and tool trays right here in the USA.
So, next time you need a tool or tool holder, think of Sierra American. You’ll find our products where the best CNC tools are sold. If your supplier doesn’t have Sierra American, be sure to ask for it by name. You’ll be thankful you did.
