Tool Holders work with shrink fit machines.

Press Release Summary:

Suited for Makino MAG machines, HSK80F Shrink Fit Holders are designed for machining of complex aluminum monolithic parts for aerospace. When used in combination with Shrink Fit Machine, holders heat up to expand inside diameter, and as they cool, thermal contraction exerts pressure that shrinks down around tool for uniform gripping. Process allows for tool changes in less than 30 seconds.

Lyndex-Nikken HSK80F Shrink Fit Holders for Makino MAG Machines

Mundelein, IL - (January 26, 2009) The accuracy, rigidity and balance of Lyndex-Nikken's HSK80F Shrink Fit Holders makes them ideally suited for Makino MAG machines. Featuring solid construction and Japanese engineering, these holders are designed for high productivity machining of complex aluminum monolithic parts for aerospace.

Used in combination with a Shrink Fit Machine, 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 Machine, also available from Lyndex-Nikken, employs a unique direct liquid-cooling method that quickly and safely cools tools down.

Lyndex-Nikken Shrink Fit Holders meet the demands of all Makino MAG machine requirements. They are manufactured to DIN69893-5 and 6 standards, supplied with drive pins per Makino's specifications, balanced to 33,000 rpm and available in short overall tool lengths within 3.00". Some of these holders are capable of being balanced with the use of an optional balancing kit.

Lyndex-Nikken offers a wide range of HSK80F tools, including HSK80F AngleHeads(TM), ER Collet Chucks, Shell Mill Holders and Ultra-Lock(TM) Milling Chucks. Lyndex-Nikken's complete line of Shrink Fit Holders is available 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.
