The spindle speed of modern machine tools have increased on a continuous basis in the last few years in order to achieve higher cutting volumes and machine in a profitable manner. The increases have also raised the demands for the tools and holders used, because the higher spindle speeds make the effects of imbalance increasingly more noticeable. The consequences are vibrations, bad surface finish and shorter tool life.
Only the high-precision balancing of tools and tool holders can make the complete capacity of the machines tool with regards to speed, cutting volume and produced surface finish accessible. Because balancing provides for fewer vibrations. It reduces wear of the spindle and tool, reduces the downtimes and increases process security.
With the Tool Dynamic balancing machine series, HAIMER offers a comprehensive solution for the balancing of tool holders, grinding wheels and big rotors with diameters up to 800 mm. Starting from the table and complementary machine TD 1002 to the automatic balancing machine TD 2010 Automatic, HAIMER has for every need the suitable balancing machine.
