Madison Face Driver, A Speedgrip Company


Complete O.D. Machining in one Operation.


Located in Elkhart, Indiana, Madison Face Driver is the premier domestic manufacturer of standard and special face driving centers. Face drivers locate a shaft type part between centers and hold the part in place by utilizing several knife edge drive pins.


Because of the tool clearance a face driver provides, it allows the operator to machine the entire outside diameter of the workpiece in one clamping. This guarantees excellent concentricity and reduces both set-up and run time. Used primarily for turning, face drivers can also be used for hobbing, milling and grinding operations.


Madison stocks a complete line of standard face drivers and accessories capable of running parts from .270" O.D. to over 13.57" O.D. including elastomer styles and the completely redesigned hydraulic style. We also have the unique capability among face driver manufacturers of designing special face drivers to your specifications utilizing our "state of the art" three dimensional solid modeling CAD system. We also offer drive pin regrinding and in house repair of all our face drivers.


At Madison:

– The Madison hydraulic face driver has the same quality features as before but now feature quick change drive pins and center points and greater tool clearance.

– Carbide drive pins for hard turning applications. These four sided inserts fit our existing Madison drivers adding even more versatility than ever.

– Madison now resharpens drive pins at our Elkhart, Indiana facility. This value added service from Madison will guarantee our customers that the drive pins have been reworked to the original factory specifications. All drive pins will be ground and packaged in sets, reground to the exact driving angles and be inspected to assure that the performance of your Madison Face Driver will not be affected.
