Original Press Release:
Lyndex-Nikken Shrink Fit Toolholders
Mundelein, IL - (April 16, 2009) Lyndex-Nikken's Shrink Fit Holders are quality designed and constructed for optimum accuracy, rigidity and balance. Featuring solid construction and Japanese engineering, these holders offer minimal variations of unbalance when changing cutting tools.
Used in combination with a Shrink Fit Unit, Shrink Fit Tool Holders rapidly heat up to expand the inside diameter of the holder. As the holder cools, the thermal contraction exerts a uniform pressure that shrinks down around the tool for uniform and superior gripping. This process not only ensures accuracy, but also allows for tool changes of less than 30 seconds.
The separate Shrink Fit Unit, also available form Lyndex-Nikken, employs a unique direct liquid-cooling method that quickly and safely cools tools down.
Lyndex-Nikken Shrink Fit Holders are designed to be symmetrical. All Shrink Fit Holders are pre-balanced (to G2.5 at 40,000 rpm on all HSK32E/40E holders, to G2.5 at 20,000 rpm on all #40 taper/HSK63 holders and to G2.5 at 15,000 rpm on all #50 taper/HSK100 holders). Most of these holders are capable of being balanced with the use of an optional balancing kit. Lyndex-Nikken offers a complete line of Shrink Fit Holders in both inch and metric sizes.
Lyndex-Nikken is North America's leading supplier of Machine Tool Accessories, and a wholly owned subsidiary of Nikken Kosakusho Works, Ltd. Japan.
