New Generation shrink fit machines feature a patented "adjustable" inductive coil which adjusts in both length & diameter. The Haimer shrink fit machine is still the fastest shrink fit machine on the market - 5 seconds to heat, 30 seconds to cool. Capable of shrinking cutting tools & extensions with shank diameters from 3mm - 32mm, for both carbide and HSS. Available with an optional capacity for 50mm shanks, integrated height gage for easy tool presetting and multiple stations for simultaneous operations. Guaranteed runout accuracy of no more than 0.00012" when using Haimer shrink fit chucks.
Whether it's shrink fit chucks, ER collet chucks, facemill arbors or high precision collet chucks, let Haimer be your "one stop shop" for all of your CNC tool holder & accessory needs. All toolholders are prebalanced to G2.5 specifications and are available in all spindle tapers including BT30 and BT40 inch sizes. New Products include the "Power Chuck" anti-vibration shrink fit chuck and our "Mini-Shrink" chucks & extensions, designed specifically for Die & Mold applications.
Haimer balancing machines will help you balance tool holder assemblies, facemills and grinding wheels in 1 or 2 planes. Balanced assemblies will improve surface finish, create less vibration and may reduce your cycle time by allowing you to run faster. The balancing software allows you to correct the unbalance by drilling holes, milling flats, using balancing rings or balancing weights such as screws. Available with optional PC and printer interface for balance documentaion. Machine is available with integrated tool presetter, and will accomodate CAT, HSK, BT, SK and CAPTO spindle tapers.
Coolant System Extends Tool Life
Haimer will display its Cool Flash system, developed out of its existing Cool Jet system.
Turning Shrink-Fit on its Side
Haimer has developed a new oriented shrink-fit machine to speed and simplify cutter changes.
A Different Type of Shrink-Fit Machine for Micro Work
Horizontal orientation is a distinguishing design element of this compact new shrink-fit machine.
Cooling Jacket for Quick-Rotating Tools
High-speed machining often causes air turbulences that prevent the coolant from reaching the cutting tool, says cutting tool distributer Haimer.
Horizontal Shrink-Fit Machine for Micromachining Applications
Toolholders with HSK interfaces are said to be the best option for micromachining applications. This horizontal shrink-fit machine is designed to speed and simplify cutter changes using these toolholders.
Fully Committed to Zero Stock Machining
Milling critical mold surfaces to final size (or even a “tenth” undersize) literally leaves no margin for error. This takes absolute confidence in every aspect of the machining process, as well as absolute confidence that the results are worthwhile.
Shrink Chucks Feature Cooling Jacket
Haimer's toolholding system features Cool Flash technology designed to wrap coolant around the tool and protect it from air turbulence common to high-speed machining.
Toolholder Secures Cutting Tools
Haimer’s Safe-Lock tool clamping system combines positive form fit with accurate torque press fit locking to prevent round, shanked cutting tools from pulling out of the holder.
Toolholders Prevent Scrapping Mold Bases
Haimer says its Safe-Lock toolholders prevent cutting tools from pulling out of the holder.
Titanium Calls for a Tight Hold on the Tool
Haimer’s SafeLock System provides pull-out protection for tools in high performance cutting such as the machining of titanium.
Composites Machining for the F-35
Lockheed Martin’s precision machining of composite skin sections for the F-35 provides part of the reason why this plane saves money for U.S. taxpayers. That machining makes the plane compelling in ways that have led other countries to take up some of the cost. Here is a look at a high-value, highly engineered machining process for the Joint Strike Fighter aircraft.
Slim-Nosed Shrink-Fit Chucks
The Power Mini Shrink chucks are a series of slim-nosed, shrink-fit chucks designed with a combination of slim tips and reinforced bases, following the company’s “Power Shrink” anti-vibration shrink-fit system.
Machine Automates Tool Balancing Process
The Tool Dynamic TD 2010 Automatic provides automated tool balancing that eliminates the need for operators to go to a separate drilling machine, the company says.
Chucks For Die/Mold Applications
Haimer’s Power Mini Shrink chucks are suited for the die-mold market.
Cutter Suppliers License Toolholding Technology
Haimer recently announced that fellow cutting tool suppliers Duaphin Precision Tool and Berkshire Precision tool are now “Safe-Lock” licensees. This allows the companies to add Haimer’s Safe-Lock modification to the shanks of their Brubaker, Data Flute, Fastcut and Weldon cutting tools.
Balanced Tool Assemblies Boost Quality, Efficiency
With balancing equipment and shrink-fit toolholders from Haimer USA, this manufacturer of automotive castings improved productivity, accuracy and surface finishes while extending tool and spindle life.
Keep Tools In Place With High Loads
The SafeLock system combines the advantages of a shrink-fit chuck with those of a positive connection by integrating ball or pin drivers into the chuck. Those drivers grip into helical grooves that are ground into the cutter shank in the opposite direction of the cutting forces. The shape of the groove ensures that the tool is simultaneously safeguarded against spinning and against being pulled out when confronted with radial and axial cutting forces.
Haimer Brings Technology To Prospective Customers
Rather than requiring customers to visit its showroom, Haimer USA (Villa Park, Illinois) is using a new demonstration vehicle to bring its showroom to its customers. Mounted on the chassis of the GMC Top Kick C4500 diesel is a 6-by-10-foot traveling showcase that features the company’s latest shrink-fit toolholders, tool-balancing machines and other products. According to the company, conservative estimates show that 30 to 35 percent of potential customers who see a demonstration on the truck actually make purchases.
Collet Chuck Torque Wrench
The ER collet chuck torque wrench is said to clamp virtually all standard ER collet chucks exactly and without over-tightening, which improves runout and limits damages to small collets due to excessive clamping efforts. According to the company, its two-arm construction avoids any shear over-tightening damage by pulling and pushing at the same time. Additionally the torque wrench provides the possibility to tighten the locknut exactly and with the correct torque via a dial gage, allowing for consistent runout accuracy, the company says.
Power Chuck Minimizes Vibrations
Machine and cutting tools reach their capacity on speeds and feeds as soon as they begin to vibrate. The vibrations are transmitted through the tool and lead to chatter marks of the workpiece. The Power Shrink Chuck is designed to reduce the amount of vibration transferred onto the workpiece, thereby improving th
Low-Speed Machines Benefit From Tool Balancing
In addition to improved cutting tool life and surface finish, there are other reasons why shops should consider an in-house balancing system for toolholder assemblies used on low-rpm machine tools.
From Mold Making To Mold Manufacturing
Pro Mold had to change its entire shop culture to make the move to “net machining.” The experience made the company stronger.
CAM Software Is The Driving Force
Doug Noxell knew he had the right software for machining to zero, so he created a shop to add the rest of the capability.
This video provides both the argument and methodology for performing offline balancing of tool/toolholder assemblies for high speed machining centers.
