TOOLSHRINK EVO

PWB Logo silver

REDUCE TOOL-CHANGE DOWNTIME
Don’t slow down your high accuracy machining operations with cumbersome tool holding solutions. ToolShrink Evo offers fast, ergonomic shrinking and unshrinking for steel, high-speed steel (HSS), heavy metal or carbide tools, reducing tool-change downtime. Featuring a heating unit with optimized automatic heating programs, the ToolShrink Evo uses an induction heat element to prevent overheating, minimize energy consumption and keep heat focused on the clamping area.

SIMPLE, ERGONOMIC AND EASY TO USE 

In addition to convenient storage for stop rods, heat-focusing stoppers and finned support rings, the unit has an intuitive two-button operation pad and simple induction mechanism for ergonomic use.
Designed to perform shrinking cycles in two to seven seconds and cooling cycles in as fast as three minutes with the optional water-cooling system, the ToolShrink Evo makes tool setting easy. For specialized holders or specific heating cycles, operators have the possibility to access a secure web-based interface via WiFi or ethernet connection to create new manual programs.

REDUCE MACHINING COSTS 

The rigidity established with ToolShrink allows the use of high cutting data, with drastic increases in productivity (especially when drilling) compared to other toolholder types. Additionally, with its superior holding force, concentricity and balance, the chip load is evenly distributed on the cutting edge. This extends tool, holder and spindle life. The reduced tool-change downtime contributes to considerable reduction in machining costs.

NO MORE OVERHEATING 

With a fully protected transmission structure linked to an induction heating system, the ToolShrink Evo makes shrinkfit holders safe and easy to use. The focused heat of the induction unit and optimized pre-programmed cycles prevent overheating for long holder life. For further operator safety, the optional refrigeration unit provides a ready-to-use tool in less than five minutes.

RANGE OVERVIEW

  • ToolShrink Evo heating unit 

  • Optional refrigeration unit

 

YOUR BENEFITS

  • Extended toolholder life because of individual optimized heat settings

  • Ergonomic tool setting ensures safety due to the machine design

  • Fast and easy operation due to simple interface

  • Versatility and flexibility with an all-in-one solution

 

YOUR CHALLENGES

  • Setup times for high accuracy machining operations is too long for optimal, cost-effective processes

  • Overheated tool holder and broken cutting tools adds costs resulting in unnecessary scrapping of tool holders

 

OUR SOLUTIONS

  • Reduce tool-change downtime with our energy-efficient clamping, all-in-one shrinkfit unit with induction heating element and automated heating cycles

  • Ensure the longest possible tool life for your shrinkfit holders and tools with fully optimized heating and cooling cycles and accessories designed to easily remove broken tools

BACK TO BASIC: SHRINKFIT PRINCIPLE
The Shrinkfit holder’s inside diameter [1] is designed to be slightly smaller than the shank diameter [2] of the cutting tool.
When placed into the inductor [3] and the cycle is started, the inside bore is heated due to the localized high magnetic field [4] generate.The inside ∅ will expands. The cutting tool shank can then be slipped easily into the holder. As the holder cools down, the resulting thermal contraction exerts a tremendous, uniform pressure around the entire surface of the tool shank.

USER FRIENDLY

  • Plug-and-Play

  • Automatic or manual heating cycles

  • Simple interface

  • Ergonomic

 

PERFORMANCE

  • Fast shrink and unshrink tools shank ∅ 3 to 32 mm (and inch) in steel, HSS, heavy metal or carbide

  • Fast cooling of the tool and the tool holder

EFFICIENCY

  • Optimized heating cycle avoiding overheating and minimal energy consumption

  • Heating located on the clamping area (faster cooling / limited heating transfer to the holder & cutter / minimal energy consumption)

  • Monobloc conception offering better precision
