Benz has introduced NanoFix, a modular quick-change system for Swiss-type live and static tool applications. According to the company, the system can reduce setup and tool-change time by as much as 40 percent for manufacturers producing small parts in the aerospace, automotive and medical industries. The configuration is engineered for confined-space machining.

The system is designed for Swiss-type tooling with a minimum spindle distance of 22 mm. The company says it enables users to change tools in as little as 15 sec. With a Torx locking mechanism, users can release and remove the adapter with one hand. It is well-suited for hard-to-reach ER collets, and is said to provide greater rigidity than other quick-change devices. It has a concentricity of 5 microns on 30 mm, repeatable accuracy, short projection and play-free centering of tapering. The adapters can also be preset outside the machine for production flexibility.

    The book on hydraulic toolholders is that they are fussy to set, fragile to operate and expensive to buy. So why do many shops choose them over other holders that seem less demanding? This Chicago mold builder has good reasons for its choice.
