Metav Heat protection for sensitive shrink chucks
Shrinking, digitalizing and balancing will be the main focuses of attention on the stand of Jungingen-based Helmut Diebold at Metav 2022 taking place in Düsseldorf,Germany, from 21 to 24 June.
Serving the tool and die making, micromachining and high-speed machining segment, Diebold has developed a micro-shrinking unit primarily for small-diameter milling cutters and their toolholders (taper sizes HSK 40, HSK 32, HSK 25 and HSK 20). CEO Hermann Diebold: “The principal benefits of our intelligent shrink devices are that the sensitive linings don’t overheat and the shrink process runs safely and smoothly.”
Any overheating of tool holders is prevented by a one-touch function. This ensures that even inexperienced users can handle the process without difficulty, making operating errors a thing of the past. Patented pyrometer technology in the coil measures the surface temperature of the chucks during the shrinking process and controls the process in a way which protects the sensitive toolholders. Customers can update the software on the Diebold homepage to ensure that the intelligent shrinking process always keeps pace with the latest technical developments. In addition, shrink operation data can be logged on the company’s own network.
Digitalisation also plays an important role in the universal balancing machine for tools, grinding wheels and other medium-size rotors. Diebold GmbH balances thousands of tool holders each year, meaning that the new software benefits from many years of know-how. The CEO: “This Diebold development therefore offers user-friendly features never before seen in such equipment.”
