Chromalloy Nevada (a manufacturer of jet aircraft engine vanes and blades), was one of the first to purchase RAD’s C-8800 Heavy Duty 5C Collet Gripper. With 8X the grip force of the previously used RAD C-8700 Collet Gripper, the C-8800 allowed Chromalloy to increase their production 300% by enabling them to redesign their wax molds to hold three molds per tree vs. the original one mold per tree.
