Intelligent Chucks enable part loading automation.

January 15, 2015

With table integration that lets robots pick and place fixtured workpieces into machine, ESA 120/70 automation chuck allows intelligent interface and communication with controller using standard Unilock knobs. Product checks for workpiece presence, proper orientation, and clamping and communicates back to controller when workpiece is in place and ready to be machined. Conversely, machine does no allow new cycle to start until new component is properly in place. Read More

Solid Carbide Drill overcomes deep-hole drilling problems.

January 15, 2015

Suited for applications up to 8xD, TiAlN-coated R459 drills such materials as steel, stainless steel, cast iron, copper, and aluminum. Continuously Thinned Web geometry maximizes flute volume and cross sectional strength, outer corner design protects against wear and chipping, and 140º point angle facilitates centering and reduces thrust requirements. While consistent edge preparation protects against premature chipping and flaking, internal coolant holes help minimize machine downtime. Read More

Collet Chuck holds near-perfect runout.

January 12, 2015

Suitable for milling, drilling, reaming, and tapping, High-Precision Collet Chuck maintains runout accuracies of 0.0001 in. at 3 x D. Thick chuck walls and strong outer form add rigidity and minimize vibration, while sealed-by-design precision collets, ranging from 6–20 mm or 0.24–0.79 in., optimize coolant delivery. Chuck is available with Safe-Lock™ pull-out protection from Haimer, which prevents tool from spinning or being pulled out of holder altogether under extreme machining conditions. Read More
