Benz Inc.’s NanoFix modular quick-change system for Swiss lathe live and static tools applications is engineered to provide all the characteristics and benefits of the Benz Solidfix modular tool changing system, but within a configuration ideal for confined space machining. The 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, the company says.

Using a Torx locking mechanism, the NanoFix adapter can be released and removed with one hand and a slight turn of the wrist. Accoring to the company, NanoFix is an alternative for hard-to-reach ER collets while providing more 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.
