Benz’s Solidfix modular tool-changing system is designed to enable quick tooling changes via adapters that hold a variety of tools. According to the company, the quick-change system enables users to preset tools for precise, repeatable cuts, with tool changes in 15 sec.

Instead of traveling to a tool-changer rack, the Solidfix spindle can be programmed to move to a home position where the operator can quickly change tools and resume manufacturing. This helps reduce setup time by 90 percent and enables users to produce additional parts every day, the company says. Its rigid, compact, balanced design also provides large multi-surface contact with high-torque and high-speed performance.

The company will also display its LinA broaching tool system, crown gear technology for heavy-duty machining, and adjustable angle heads for machining difficult angles.
