Reaching Your Goal Safely and Efficiently
With »powerShrink« by ZOLLER, shrink-clamped tools are quickly ready for use: thanks to intuitive »pilot« software, an intelligent induction system, and the consistent monitoring of the work steps.
The »powerShrink« technology ensures shortest process functions. The resulting short process times can even be achieved by inexperienced operators after only a brief training period. The »pilot« operating software guides you through all production steps and controls numerous processes fully automatically. The software displays the component required for each production step and supports you visually with the aid of graphic displays on the screen and the pioneering ZOLLER »actbyLight« control concept. The light-controlled operator guidance for safe and efficient use of the »powerShrink« in your company.
Main menu – large functional areas with clear images: Scan the shrink fit tool holder type selection, parameter selection or code.
Parameter selection – the required heating parameters can be selected simply and safely through clear and understandable software function surfaces.
Scan function – all parameters suitable for the shrink-clamping chuck are loaded automatically – regardless of the manufacturer. It is possible to monitor the number of heating processes and the information display per shrink fit tool holder.
Step-by-step guidance – throughout the entire shrink-clamp process, »pilot« shows you exactly which step you are to carry out and when.
Status displays – whether for heating or cooling process, »pilot« shows you the progress of the process and important safety instructions.
Clearly Guided and
The clearly structured graphic display of the ZOLLER »pilot« software intuitively guides the operator through the operating dialog, step-by-step, with the help of large function buttons and a wellconceived color concept. The 12.5-inch monitor impresses with a clear and detailed display.
The flue gas suction device reliably removes flue gases from the work area of the operator. The established and patented flue gas suction device above the induction coil was expanded by an integrated suction in the inside of the coil housing. The suction of the flue gases thus happens directly where they are produced. The filter unit finds a safe place in the table.
With ZOLLER's air cooling »zStream« you obtain maximal flexibility and protection with the cooling of your shrink fit tool holder, independently of its contour or diameter. In addition, your shrink-clamping tools are cooled consistently and safely across their entire length – without the risk of being damaged. »zStream« is also ideally suited for cooling placed down tools. »powerShrink« is available with two or three separate cooling places* for parallel, effective use.
*two cooling spaces for .powerShrink 400., three cooling spaces for .powerShrink 600.
The integrated length setting system is used to set the overall length or projection length and for the tool exchange. The pneumatically-activated quick adjustment and fine adjustment by hand wheel allow a fast, ergonomic and precise position of the probe head to the required height.
The »pilot« software scan function, combined with the hand scanner, enables the reliable selection of the appropriate shrink parameter by scanning the holder number on the shrink-holding fixture. Regardless of the manufacturer, all shrink-clamping chucks with a DataMatrix code (e. g., ZOLLER »idLabel«, ZOLLER »idChip«) are supported.
In the »pilot« software, each heating process can be counted per shrink-clamping chuck. In addition, a warning and wear limit, in relation to the permissible heating operations, can be stored.
Alternatively, the diameter selection (for shrink-clamping chuck according to DIN 69882-8) on the »powerShrink 400« can be selected quickly and simply via an oil- and dirt-resistant, workshopcompatible and durable membrane keypad.
As an alternative to installation on a workbench, the »powerShrink 400« can be positioned on a set-up table with ergonomically optimal working height. This provides a tidy place for the cooler and flue gas suction device. The table is optionally available with sturdy rollers and an ergonomic handle, to allow variable positioning of the »powerShrink 400«.
With your »powerShrink«, you get a default mounting pot. Optionally, additional units can be ordered for parallel heating and cooling. The bearing surface is perfectly matched to the mounting pot and enables a comfortable and quiet shift.
The different mounting rings allow flexible retooling between different mounting interfaces. For all common tool-holding fixture types and sizes up to SK 50, HSK 100 and PSC 10.
Cooling adapter for specialized shrink fit tool holder forms and sizes (e. g., also for D3 mm to D5 mm). Matching for cooling bells D14 mm to D16 mm or D25 mm to D32 mm.
Storage board for mounting rings and special cooling adapter
The storage board provides space for storing four mounting rings and six size I special cooling adapters or three size I and size II special cooling adapters.
For depositing shank tools at the shrinking workstation. The position of the tray can be freely selected by the operator.
Tray for cleaning brushes
For storing the cleaning brushes, there is a tray with all brush diameters, which can be attached to the machine via magnets, and at any position. The brushes for cleaning the locating bore of shrink fit tool holders are also available from ZOLLER – for shaft diameters D3 mm to D32 mm, optionally made of brass or plastic.
Split screening plates with tray
For unclamping of placed down tools, optionally, a set of screening plates (5 pieces) in split version including the corresponding disc tray can be ordered.
For optimal, user-friendly operation, the operating handle, which is mounted on the left as a default, can optionally be selected to be mounted on the right side or on both sides. Each control handle is equipped with two function buttons – for moving the coil and activating the heating process.
»toolEx« supports you when removing tools from the shrink-clamping chuck, which cannot be removed by hand or with pliers, such as broken tools. The set includes a holder and six ejector rods.
With the »liteSet« you set the projecting length of the tool to be shrink-clamped. The maximum cantilever length is 150 mm. The set includes four clamping prisms for shaft diameters D3 mm to D32 mm.
