BILZ will reveal two new ThermoGrip® Shrink fit machines at IMTS2012

Sunday, July 1, 2012

 – Bilz Tool Co. Inc. (Lombard, IL) has developed a new generation of ThermoGrip® shrink fit machines and will introduce them at IMTS2012, please visit our booth W1194. Bilz is a global leader in ThermoGrip® shrink fit technology since they introduced their first shrink fit machine in 1998. Since then, Bilz has continued to develop the ThermoGrip® shrink fit system to meet the needs and demands of the growing number of shrink fit users globally.


The new model series – ISG3400 – feature a bench top and a free-standing machine with the latest technology in liquid cooling and shrink fit technology. One model features completely automated heat shrink cycles and cooling cycles for hands-free operation. The bench-top model features the same capabilities with manual operation.


Both models feature the standard range of shrink fit tool capacity – from 3mm-32mm for carbide and 6-32mm for HSS tooling. The floor standing machine can be expanded up to 50mm with quick-change ThermoGrip coils. The new machines feature the fastest shrink fit process on the market – 45 seconds or less depending on tool style and size.


Both machines are available in 480volt, 3 phase electrical power eliminating the need for an external transformer/generator.


Features of both machines include:
