Hickory, NC —BENZ Inc., a technological leader for the production of advanced tooling for the wood, metal and composites industries, has announced that it has introduced a new product called NanoFix®, a modular quick-change system for Swiss lathe live and static tools applications.
“Manufacturers producing small parts for the aerospace, automotive and medical industries will benefit from the Nanofix®, which reduces set up and tool change time by up to 40%.” explained John Roasa, National Sales Manager, Metal Division, BENZ Inc. “It is engineered to provide all the characteristics and benefits of our popular BENZ Solidfix® modular tool changing system, but within a configuration ideal for confined space machining.”
The BENZ NanoFix® modular quick-change system is designed for Swiss-type tooling with a minimum spindle distance of 22 mm and makes it simple to change tools inside the Swiss lathe in as little as 15 seconds. Utilizing a Torx locking mechanism, the NanoFix® adapter can be released and removed with one hand and a slight turn of the wrist. NanoFix® is a smart alternative for hard-to-reach ER collets while providing greater rigidity than other quick-change devices. It features a high concentricity of 5 μm on 30 mm, repeatable accuracy, short projection and play-free centering of tapering. Tool changes can be facilitated with one hand. Nanofix® adapters can be preset outside the machine offering the ultimate in production flexibility.
