Haimer USA offers two new products to the shrink-fit market: the compact Power Clamp Air i4.0 and the Nano NG i4.0.
The Power Clamp Air i4.0 enables an even, clean cooling for all kinds of shrink-fit chucks and collets by air nozzles, regardless of the outside contour — without dirt and water residue. The Power Clamp Nano NG i4.0 was specially developed for shrink-fit collets and small toolholders up to size HSK-A63. The shrinking process is horizontal, with a fully automated motor coil and air-cooling system.
Duo-Lock, Haimer’s modular cutting tool system, is said to maximize a carbide tool’s productivity in roughing and finishing applications. It provides high load capacity and rigidity when machining at high metal removal rates. In addition, the new Duo-Lock ER collets enable for quick tool changes in turning machines and live tools, providing Z-axis repeatability. Tool changes are said to happen within 30 seconds, which reduces the amount of machine downtime.

Improved quick-change toolholding system for CNC swiss machines and precision CNC equipment feature toolholder adaptors and quick-change modules that can be preset.
The angled square toolholders position the insert at 30-, 45- or 60-degree angles for reliefs, undercuts, angled OD and face grooves.
