If you're one of the most innovative companies in your field, you’ll naturally want to make a big impression at your industry's biggest meeting. And that is why heimatec from Renchen in Germany, a global manufacturer of high-precision static and live precision tools for lathes and machining centers, was at EMO Hannover 2017 with five new products. The manufacturer’s number one among the newcomers is the new heimatec.CyberCon4 sensor system. This system electronically captures a huge range of tool parameters such as service life, speed, temperature and humidity and helps optimize the management of maintenance cycles. But the other four innovations are no less impressive.
For example, heimatec.SwissTooling is a completely new tool range for swiss-type automatic lathes. This standard range of tools is now available from heimatec with optimum customization to suit manufacturer machine parameters. The heimatec.u-tec CKB meanwhile is a comprehensive adaptation solution designed for users of BIG KAISER precision boring tools. The fourth innovation is the new heimatec.Skiving series of tools for gear production on turning centers. It produces internal and external gearing to high quality standards and at even higher speeds, whether helical or straight. And, last but not least, EMO visitors also had the chance to check out the new modular heimatec.Capto quick-change tool system. heimatec.Capto is exceptionally versatile and offers wide-ranging modularity and high availability for interchangeable inserts on lathes and machining centers, thereby helping significantly improve efficiency in set-up and changeover times.
