Shrink Fit Toolholders(2)

Lyndex-Nikken's shrink fit holders offer minimal variations of unbalance when changing cutting tools. Used in combination with a shrink fit unit, the toolholders rapidly heat up to expand the inside diameter of the holder. As the holder cools, the thermal contraction exerts a uniform pressure that shrinks down around the tool for uniform gripping.

Lyndex-Nikken's shrink fit holders offer minimal variations of unbalance when changing cutting tools. Used in combination with a shrink fit unit, the toolholders rapidly heat up to expand the inside diameter of the holder. As the holder cools, the thermal contraction exerts a uniform pressure that shrinks down around the tool for uniform gripping. This process not only ensures accuracy, but also allows for tool changes of less than 30 seconds.

The separate unit, also available from the company, employs a unique direct liquid cooling method that quickly and safely cools tools down.

These toolholders are designed to be symmetrical and are pre-balanced. Most of these holders are capable of being balanced with the use of an optional balancing kit. The company offers a complete line of holders in both inch and metric sizes.
