Shrink Fit System; Booth W-1732
Nexus Tool will show its patented ShrinkMILL system that uses shrink fit technology to make a perfect connection between the arbor and face mill for maximized performance. This is done by heating the face mill in the shrink fit machine, which expands the bore to receive the face mill arbor. The ShrinkMILL System eliminates any tolerance between the arbor and the face mill creating the perfect shrink fit connection. Because the connection is shrink fit, runout and vibration are reduced, permitting increased feeds, extended insert life, and better surface finish. Nexus provides complimentary shrink fit services to its customers who do not own their own machine.
The ShrinkMILL System includes Nexus Tool’s face mill arbors and face mills that are manufactured to precise tolerances required by the shrink fit process. Choose from a wide range of Nexus multi-coated inserts for all materials as well high-polished inserts optimized for aluminum.
Also on display will be thePowerLOC system, which is built around the patented PowerLOC indexable end mill with a square shank end that locks into the PowerLOC Square Shank Adapter. The PowerLOC System significantly improves T.I.R. compared to standard end mill holders, and because the PowerLOC shank cannot spin in the holder, slippage is eliminated from the manufacturing process.
Nexus will be at IMTS 2012 in Booth W-1732.
