January 15, 2018: Metav 2018 Preview Report: Perfectly attuned to one another
With METAV 2018, Düsseldorf will once again become the workshop city of the metalworking industry. There, the exhibitors and visitors can talk about the latest technologies, services and trends. Right in the middle of it: the HAIMER Group, world market leader in the area of shrinking and balancing technology. In hall 14, booth number C31, the company will present its entire product portfolio ranging from solid carbide tools, to various tool holders as well as shrinking, balancing and presetting technology. All products are perfectly attuned to one another and provide all the necessary requirements for network integration and continuous data flow.
Technologically: stirring. Economically: invigorating - this is the slogan of METAV 2018, which will take place from 20th till 24th February in Düsseldorf. The HAIMER Group will join this exhibition with outstanding and qualitatively leading technology that makes a decisive contribution to economical metalworking. Some of the highlights undoubtedly include the network-compatible Microset presetting devices that make HAIMER a complete system provider around the machine tool. For HAIMER, the main focus during the exhibition is their Industry 4.0 technology: whether it might be HAIMER tool holders which can optionally be equipped with RFID data chips or the HAIMER network-compatible shrinking and balancing devices. With their broad product range, HAIMER is aiming to make the entire work process as easy as possible for all of its customers. From cutting tools and tool holders to shrinking, balancing and highly precise presetting technology, the customers can get everything they need from one single source. 2017 was full of numerous innovations which will be presented at METAV 2018.
Power Clamp i4.0 - Shrinking Industry 4.0 ready
The new and automated Power Clamp i4.0 series makes shrinking very easy. This series offers a new, high-quality design and the machines are equipped with a powerful and sufficient cooling system. Due to the patented NG coil they are suitable for both solid carbide and HSS tools for diameter 3 to 32 mm. Interfaces for data communication with the production network and a scanner that is able to read the shrinking parameters make this series Industry 4.0 ready. Another advantage is the new and user-friendly software, which now offers a wide range of shrink options on an industrial-grade 7" touch display.
HAIMER Microset Presetting Technology
Microset machines distinguish themselves through first-class hardware, ideal ergonomics, as well as easy handling. The product range of HAIMER Microset tool presetters includes entry level machines that are very profitable for the low volume users. HAIMER also offers semi-automated machines with Autofocus that are suitable for the average volume users. Last but not least, the product range includes fully automated presetting devices with linear drive which are especially designed for high volume use. All of these machines are supported by a stable cast iron construction which reduces the need for frequent calibration and enables a smooth and repeatable application in the production area.
Shrink Fit Collets - HAIMER quality for the turning machine
In addition to high-performance products for tool clamping in the CNC milling machine, HAIMER now also offers clamping options for turning machines. The new shrink fit collets are available in ER 16 and ER 25 and are compatible with all common clamping nuts. They can also be used with driven tool holders. The optional Cool Jet slots ensure even more process reliability and maximum cooling.
Duo-Lock™ program extension - the best interface for modular milling Tools
In the field of Duo-Lock™, the modular tool interface for highest demands, HAIMER has expanded its range: Collets with Duo-Lock™ threads make it possible to preserve the advantages of the milling tools even when turning. The modular tools deliver maximum stability and resilience thanks to their unique double-cone thread design. This results in components with very high precision and productivity. The Duo-Lock™ collets ensure the best repeatability, easy set-up and quick tool change in the machine tool. Due to their monoblock structure, the collets offer more stability and best runout accuracy. With the Cool-Jet-System they also offer best cooling options. Duo-Lock™ collets are ideal for both conventional ER chucks for milling, as well as driven tools and rotary transfer machines. In addition to the collets, the Duo-Lock™ range also includes solid carbide, heavy metal or steel extensions as well as solid carbide blanks for maximum flexibility in customer geometry design
