Join Haimer at their North American Headquarters for the Haimer 2018 Open House. Haimer will host guest speakers, live demonstrations and presentations, food and drinks, networking, and the company will showcase Haimer tooling technologies.
This year’s theme is “Explore industry 4.0,” and Haimer says it plans to do exactly that with products that enable enhanced data communication and collection. Here’s just a sample of what Haimer has in store:
This year, the Haimer panel of speakers includes Patrick Curry, president of Fullerton Tool Company, who will report on how Fullerton puts balance to work to improve product quality while simultaneously reducing costs. Steve Kline, Chief Data Officer at Gardner Business Media, will present his insights on where the economy (especially the metalworking industry) may be headed. A representative from Western Precision Products Inc. will describe how it has implemented industry 4.0 into its everyday manufacturing operations, saving time and enhancing quality for its customers.
i4.0 Integration Demo
Learn firsthand how combining Haimer technology can provide process security, save time and ensure machining success. The demonstration will feature a comparison of data transfer methods—some more antiquated than others—that will help prove the benefits of connecting your shop, either through post-processes or RFID technology.
Power Clamp i4.0 Shrink Fit Machines
Haimer says its new Power Clamp i4.0 series makes shrinking even easier. Network communication and tool scanning capabilities make this series “industry 4.0-ready.”
Microset Tool Presetting Machines
Haimer says that Microset machines distinguish themselves through first-class hardware and ideal ergonomics, as well as easy handling. The product range of Haimer Microset tool presetters includes entry level machines that are very profitable for low volume users all the way to fully automated presetting with incorporated Haimer shrink fit technology.
New Shrink Fit and Collets
Haimer now offers an array of high-performance clamping options for milling & turning machines. New shrink and Duo-Lock collets are compatible with ER collet chucks ranging from ER 16 to ER 32 with multiple collet length configurations. The incredible strength and precision of Haimer holding technology is now expanded to accommodate even more applications.
An Enhanced Cutting Tool Offering
Haimer introduces new tool geometries for Power Mill and Duo-Lock offerings, including designs for aluminum and mold steels, as well as its Basic Mill end mills, suited for roughing, finishing and drilling.
