September 3, 2019: Shrinking Tools - but digital please!
HAIMER presents its Industry 4.0-ready and network compatible Power Clamp i4.0 shrink fit machine line. The ergonomic shrinking stations with their patented NG coil are suitable for all solid carbide and HSS tools in the diameter range from 3 to 32 mm and come with an intuitive, easy-to-use software. The shopfloor-ready 7" touch display can even be operated with thin work gloves. Upon request, HAIMER equips the Power Clamp i4.0 machines with a motorized coil and a scanner that reads out shrinking parameters from data matrix codes. This ensures reliable, easy and automated shrinking.
The Power Clamp i4.0 series covers a wide spectrum of equipment options. The most flexible version is the Power Clamp Sprint i4.0. It is suitable for the smooth and clean cooling of all kinds of shrink fit chucks and shrink fit collets regardless of the outside contour by air nozzles and mist. Dirt and water residues are reliably avoided. In addition, a temperature control ensures optimized and safe cooling. The Power Clamp Sprint i4.0 can optionally be equipped with a length presetting device.
The high-end version of the i4.0 machines is the Power Clamp Premium i4.0. It includes a special feature: the automatic cooling station indication for the five stations, which ensures a simple, fast and safe contact cooling process.
As HAIMER's system concept consistently goes through the entire range of shrinking technology there are also new shrink fit holders waiting for visitors in the EMO booth 2019 (hall 4, booth E16). For the first time, HAIMER presents a complete range of shrink fit collets from ER 11 to ER 32 in various lengths, which can be shrinked reliably and safely on the Power Clamp Sprint i4.0. These shrink fit collets can be used for milling in ER collet chucks or on lathes in driven tools.

There are also new developments in shrink fit chucks for milling tools. In the future, HAIMER will be offering BT30 and BT40 tool holders with face contact, which may contribute to even greater precision and process reliability, especially at high speeds. From October, these are available from stock in the versions Standard, Power Mini Shrink Chuck and Power Chuck.
