BENZ GmbH Werkzeugsysteme is one of the leading system partners for the development and production of CNC tool systems used by companies that work with metal, wood and composites. Its carefully conceived product range is renowned for its top quality standards and includes static and powered tools, devices such as angle heads, multi-spindle heads and high-speed spindles, and the BENZ Solidfix, BENZ CAPTO and BENZ Nanofix modular quick-change systems. It also supplies broaching units, large-scale drill heads and 2-axis NC heads. However, taking center stage at the company's stand for EMO Hannover 2019 is "Hybrix", the latest innovative machine tooling technology.
When "Hybrix" was launched in September 2018, it was the star variant that stole the limelight but, in Hannover, BENZ is shifting the spotlight to the crown design version. The main components of this innovative solution are one or more motor spindles paired with an automatic tool-changing system. By offering the technology in different designs, BENZ aims to ensure it can be used with all machine types. According to the company, machines equipped with "Hybrix" achieve a power density up to 30 percent higher than they do when using pre-existing systems, and also deliver limiting speeds that are around 40 percent higher. What's more, depending on the variant in use, tools can even be changed while machining is ongoing.
