Techniks Induction Shrink-Fit Machines
Our induction heat machines are the state of the art when it comes to shrink-fit. Localized induction heating allows you to quickly change tools in a few seconds, either right in the spindle or off-line.
What is Shrink Fit?
Shrink-fit uses the expansion and contraction properties of metal to provide extremely powerful tool holding. The bore is slightly smaller than the tool shank, and when heated it expands just enough to allow the tool to be inserted.
When it cools, the contraction holds the tool with 10,000 lbs of force.
Should I Use Shrink-Fit?
If you do high speed, or high torque machining you should seriously consider the benefits of shrink-fit technology. Your investment will pay for itself many times over.
With shrink-fit toolholders vibration is reduced and cutting is noticeably faster and smoother. Manufacturing cycle times can be reduced while maintaining the quality and accuracy demanded by today's competitive markets.
