Reduced Unbalance Increases Machining Quality

Tooldyne – the tool balancing system made by experts

Tooldyne

Today, high-speed machining is the established procedure for the economic machining of metals and plastics. Due to new developments in cutting materials and spindles, the achievable cutting speeds are consistently increasing. However, this procedure does have its challenges: Early on in its development, it was recognized that the unbalance of spindles, specifically the tools, sets severe limits on high-speed machining. This unbalance has a substantial influence on the achieved quality and precision of the surfaces to be machined. The spindle and tool longevity is also critically influenced by unbalance.  Whereas the unbalance of spindles and other drive components can be removed during manufacturing, tools must be balanced more frequently, usually prior to initial use in a machine tool.

Everything in its proper place

During the design of our new Tooldyne, ergonomics combined with easy operation were at the top of our specifications. The result of this is a compact solution in which everything is in its proper place: starting with the easy to operate protective cover through to the ideal working height, right up to the easily accessible storage container for the tool adaptor.

 

The measuring unit is clearly visible and allows you simple and direct input of all data via a touch screen. The logical operating concept with clear and easily understandable displays using symbols aligned to touch screen operation as well as a comprehensive range of operating aids will quickly make the Tooldyne a popular working device.

Your safety comes first

The Tooldyne fulfils the requirements laid down in the latest Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC, valid since the beginning of 2010, in every respect, and is CE certified. The protective cap fulfils the high standards set by the ISO 21940-23 Class C - Protection against ejected parts.

 

We have also ensured that many other components are safe in that they cannot clamp fingers and that adjustments can be carried out almost entirely without tools. The function of each component is safe and easy to understand.

Tooldyne mineral casting housing

Features that have proven highly successful on other
balancing machines have also been used on our new Tooldyne. One example of this is the use of mineral casting for the machine housing. This modern material – which you may already use for the machine bed on your machining centre – damps vibrations up to 10 times more effectively than grey cast iron and is therefore perfectly suited for use on a balancing machine. The Tooldyne is therefore substantially less sensitive against interfering outside influences.

 

Mineral casting also permits a crane hook machine design. Simply set it up, align it and connect it to compressed air and power supplies and you can start balancing your tools – all this without foundations and without having to bolt the machine to the floor.
