~~New BILZ JetSleeve® as the solution for milling tasks—more performance due to precise coolant supply.
Available immediately, BILZ, the worldwide leading manufacturer of clamping tools for the sectors thread grinding and high performance tools, is able to offer the innovative technology JetSleeve®. BILZ uses the advantage of the development and production cooperation with its partners to solve almost 90% of all its customers’ milling problems. The new benchmark in coolant supply impresses with its considerable economic and ecological advantages for customers in the mold and die industry, the automotive industry, and medical and dental technology.
Innovation for Customer Success
The heart of the new JetSleeve® is shrink chuck with three compressed air holes and an aluminum sleeve. With the help of 16 holes at different angles on the front of the sleeve, the pressurized medium is forced at high speed and without separation to the working areas where the chips are blown away as soon as they are formed. This means no more milling cutter breakage. The result is a direct influence on considerably improved tool life and less annual tool costs. The most tangible cost advantages, however, are achieved by a significantly improved surface quality of the work pieces, because vibrations are reduced during the operation due to the hydraulic design of the JetSleeve® holder.
Reworking such as finishing, polishing, and finish-milling are no longer necessary. JetSleeve® can be used for milling cutters from diameters of 3mm up to 20mm and for all taper sizes HSK and SK, Special solutions and lengths are always possible. Not only does this cover the biggest part of all milling tasks, but in contrast to former solutions. JetSleeve® can also be used on all machines with internal coolant flow. This means a one-time investment cost which pays off immediately through higher production capacity. Process security is guaranteed due to the automatic operation, as there is no chip accumulation and programming is not interrupted.
Green Tec principle expertly put into practice
With JetSleeve® BILZ has developed a perfect product which fulfills the highest requirements for eco-friendly products and production methods and also preserves resources in an exemplary way. The considerably reduced raw material consumption has a great effect on the production of milling tools. Furthermore, much less air pressure and power for compressors is needed and there is less oil pollution. JetSleeve® gives clear signal for ecologically sustainable and energy efficiency in the world of machining.

~~BILZ announces two new ThermoGrip®
Shrink fit machines at Westec 2013
Sept. 2013 – Bilz Tool Co. Inc. (Lombard, IL) has developed a new generation of ThermoGrip® shrink fit machines and will introduce them at Westec 2013, please visit our booth 2338. Bilz is a global leader in ThermoGrip® shrink fit technology since they introduced the first shrink fit machine in 1998. Since then, Bilz has continued to develop the ThermoGrip® shrink fit system to meet the needs and demands of the growing number of shrink fit users globally.
The new model series – ISG3400 – feature a bench top and a free-standing machine with the latest technology in liquid cooling, and shrink fit technology. One model features completely automated heat shrink cycles and cooling cycles for hands-free operation. The bench-top model features the same capabilities with manual operation.
Both models feature the standard range of shrink fit tool capacity – from 3mm-32mm for carbide and 6-32mm for HSS tooling. The floor standing machine can be expanded up to 50mm with quick-change ThermoGrip coils. Fastest shrink fit process on the market – 45 seconds or less depending on tool style and size.
Both machines are available in 480volt, 3 phase electrical power eliminating the need for an external transformer/generator.
Features of both machines include:
• Direct shower cooling process -- no risk of operator injury, as tools cool down to room temperature while still in the heating position.
• Maintaining tool TIR and concentricity by uniform cooling of the assembled tool within seconds – processor controlled.
• No “sweating” of the toolholders due to condensation of (too) cold cooling adapters from “active” coolers.
• Protection against corrosion for the tool and the shrink fit chuck with supplied coolant.
• Minimal electrical consumption. 98% of the energy is transformed into “heating power” via the patented induction coil.
• Contour independent cooling – No damage of the cutting edge by cooling elements and no additional cooling adapters necessary for different shrink chuck geometries
• Patented quick change coil system -- Developed by Bilz for simplified coil change
• Control Panel and software –simply select the tool style and size and start the heating process - fixed parameters for all standardized ThermoGrip® shrink chuck geometries are included.
• The automated feature prevents overheating of shrink chucks and insures proper handling.
• Up to 50 custom tool settings for special parameter tools can be stored.
Features of the new ISG3400WK:
All features above, plus
• Fully automatic shrinking and cooling process -- no risk of operator burning injury.
• Both toolholder lift and coil tower are fully automated.
• Best Operator Safety – No handling of “hot” shrink holders, single location process of heating and cooling without handling of tool assembly.
