MEX 2017 Expansion of product portfolio to include tool presetting machines
Haimer designs and produces innovative, high-precision products for metal-cutting and other branches including automotive, aerospace, energy, rail and general machining. Apart from its extensive tool-holder offerings, including shrinking and balancing machines, 3-D Sensors and solid carbide cutting tools, its portfolio now also includes tool presetting machines.
One highlight at the show will be the Vio linear series. Haimer says this is the only machine series on the market with a linear drive for efficient and precise presetting of drilling, milling and turning tools. The direct drive within the x and z axis offers the user dynamic positioning precision and reliability for even the largest tooling and a repeatability of +/- 2 μm. The increased speed of linear drive can guarantee a productivity increase of up to 25% during the machining process – and at a good price-performance ratio, according to the company.
All machines of Haimer's Microset Vio series have a modular design to cover a wide spectrum of needs. Tools that weigh up to 160kg with a diameter and measuring length of up to 1,000mm can be measured. Subject to requirements, the devices can be upgraded to fully automated CNC measuring machines with the company's integrated shrinking technology. The unique design ensures ergonomic functionality for ease of use for the operator. This applies both to the spindle access as well as the central control panel.
The machine's one-hand operation makes it possible to manually or automatically measure the axes and guarantees μm-precise fine positioning, Haimer claims.
Furthermore, high quality during the manufacturing process can be achieved through fast and exact measuring with the image-editing software, Microvision Vio, the Germany -based company adds. Tool measurement is made easier with the help of the large high-resolution flat screen monitor.
