Heat Shrink Chuck

The Heat Shrink Tool Holder offers some substantial benefits when compared to standard HSK-63F tool holders. A Heat Shrink chuck creates a more uniform, rigid connection between the CNC machine and the tool resulting in less vibration and a noticeably faster and smoother cut.

Here are some of the major benefits:

– One piece tool holder with no additional parts (nut/collets)

– Extremely tight tolerance 0.003mm & balancing properties

– High clamping force (~10,000 lbs) and rigidity

– improved tolerance equates to improved finish quality and longer tool life

– Slim design, ideal for 5-axis machines and tight routing conditions

Wondering how shrink fit tool holders work? The receiving end of the tool holder is heated with an electric heating induction machine.

This causes the steel body  to expand, allowing for the insertion of the tool shank. Once the tool shank has been inserted the heating element is turned off allowing the steel to cool and “shrink” around the shank of the tool. To remove the tool, just repeat the process.

Because of the need for an induction heating element to change tools, many companies will find this system not ideal for using solid carbide tools. However, we offer this service for FREE when you purchase a Heat Shrink tool holder with any of our standard or custom insert tools.

This system is ideal for longer life tools like PCD and insert tools due to the fact you do not have to remove the tool from the tool holder to change out the knives.  With PCD tooling, if you utilize our sharpening service you can send the tool in with tool holder intact, we will take care of the rest.

Clamping Systems

Clamping Systems are a decisive link between a tool and the machine spindle. Tool life and attainable work piece quality, but also safety are significantly influenced by clamping systems.

Ideally the clamping system should be:

  1. of low weight
  2. of low imbalance
  3. compliant with the norm
  4. made of high quality steel

 

Clamping technology assumes a key position with regard to machining quality and safety technology. Considering that the purchase of clamping systems is a matter of trust, it is recommendable to rely on products of well known manufacturers and to take detailed advise from sharp tooling experts!
