Heavy duty shrink fit chucks for heavy machinery
- Published: February 15, 2018
The new Heavy Duty Shrink Fit Chuck from Haimer has been developed for heavy duty use in the heavy machinery and aerospace industries.
The extremely rigid outer geometry and the reinforced wall thickness at the clamping bore make it the ideal chuck for roughing and unforgiving applications that need the highest levels of clamping and rigidity.
The Heavy Duty Shrink Fit Chuck has precision runout accuracy of < 0.00012" (3 µm), and thanks to its patented geometry, vibration is undetectable with this chuck. Like all Haimer Shrink Fit Chucks, the Heavy Duty Chucks have both the aforementioned precision as well as repeatable balance (all holders balanced to [email protected] 25,000 RPM) and gripping torque for ultimate tool life & surface finish.
All Heavy Duty Chucks can be equipped with Safe-Lock, Haimer’s pullout protection system. The process reliability guaranteed by Safe-Lock allows the Heavy Duty Shrink Fit Chuck to finally replace the Weldon holder in heavy duty machining applications. And with over a dozen premium global cutting tool license partners, tools with Safe-Lock shanks are available from any number of sources.
The Heavy Duty Shrink Fit Chuck shrinks both carbide and HSS tools and accommodates round shank tools up to 2.0 inches in diameter in a variety of tapers.
Heavy Duty Shrink Fit Chucks are ideal for:
– Machining large steel and cast parts, e.g. gear housings
– Extreme rigidity and clamping force even at long protruding lengths
– High cutting capacity (High Performance Cutting, HPC)
– Low vibrations due to patented geometry
– Pull out protection for cutting tools with Safe-Lock
