Tooling Expert BENZ Inc. Presenting Four New
Products at IMTS 2014
1888PressRelease - BENZ Inc. to Present Four New
Products at IMTS 2014, including the LinA and
LinS broaching tools, C-axis Angle Head, and Mini
Flex-Angle Head. Charlotte-Gastonia-Rock Hill,
NC-SC - BENZ Inc. has announced that it will be
presenting four new tooling systems during IMTS,
September 8-13, 2014, at McCormick Place in
Chicago, IL. The company will be demonstrating
its new LinA and LinS broaching tools, C-axis
Angle Head, and Mini Flex-Angle Head in Booth
2445 during the show. Both the BENZ LinA and
LinS broaching tools perform I.D. and O.D.
broaching with the one tool. I.D. and O.D.
keyways, splines, torx and hex shapes can all be
machined with the same tool. Use of the LinA and
LinS broaching tools also reduces cycle time and
increases machine life by eliminating wear on
guideways and abuse on spindle bearings. The
BENZ LinA broaching system changes the rotary
motion of the live tool turret into a linear
motion for broach and spline machining on turning
centers. With the LinA in place, the programmer
can position the Z-axis to the start position and
program a constant X feed until the broach depth
has been achieved, at 1000 rpm/1000 strokes per
minute. It utilizes an integrated feature that
lifts the tool .006" off the material on the
return stroke for a better surface finish and
tool life. A typical 3/8" x .187" x 1.250" keyway
would take almost two minutes to cut on a lathe.
The LinA can machine the same feature in steel in
6 - 8 seconds. BENZ offers the LinA radial and
axial models, available in both long- and
short-stroke versions.

The BENZ LinS broaching tool system is a
one-of-a-kind system that enables programmers to
broach splines, torx, hex and keyways on their
machining centers. The LinS provides broaching
solutions without compromising either spindle or
spindle-bearing integrity. By rotating the
spindle at 50 rpm, the LinS provides spindle and
bearing protection and the torque arm eliminates
oscillating spindle conditions which will cause
the broach insert to chip. The LinS can also be
adjusted manually to provide 360-degree rotation
and can be used with a fourth axis to create
splines, torx and hex shapes. The recently
launched BENZ C-axis Angle Head can be rotated to
predetermined positions automatically while
mounted in the machine using the C-axis of the
machine spindle. Its index position and accuracy
are controlled by a Hirth coupling, which can be
unclamped by the main spindle using coolant or
air to adjust angles. Users can also position
multiple angles faster and reduce the need for
multiple angle heads set to specific angles. This
tool is a great solution for the automotive and
aerospace industry. The new BENZ Mini Flex
Angle Head is compact and available in a 90 or
adjustable angle head version. It is designed for
BT30 drill/tap machine tools like the Brother,
Chiron and Fanuc RoboDrill and delivers 6,000 rpm
with 360 angular rotation. In addition to its
four new products, BENZ will also be
demonstrating its Solidfix and the CAPTO quick
change systems. The BENZ Solidfix Modular quick
change system enables users to change tools
quickly using adapters that hold a variety of
tools instead of requiring a labor-intensive
manual tool change. This proprietary, patented
BENZ Solidfix modular quick-change system lets
the user preset adapters for precise, repeatable
tool changes in 10 to 15 seconds. It requires no
special tools, can be operated safely with one
hand, incorporates both a 180-degree bayonet
style lock and ejection features, and has no
screws to lose. BENZ Solidfix provides a cone
locator surface and full face contact for maximum
accuracy and rigidity.

Instead of time consuming tool changes and high
cost of specialty tools, the Solidfix spindle can
be positioned where the operator can quickly
change adapters and resume machining the part. It
helps reduce set-up time by 90 and enables users
to produce more parts every day. BENZ also will
be exhibiting the BENZ CAPTO quick change
system, which performs the same basic functions
as the BENZ Solidfix system. The BENZ CAPTO
system is a little more heavy duty and offers a
wider variety of 3rd party adapters. Both systems
offer the same one handed 10 - 15 second adapter
change. For cost conscious customers, the BENZ
Solidfix is a more affordable solution to the
BENZ CAPTO system. BENZ Inc., a member of the
Zimmer Group, is the technological leader for the
production of innovative machining heads for the
wood, plastics, composites and metalworking
industries. The company manufactures tooling in
Germany and offers sales and support for the
United States and Canada through its subsidiary,
BENZ Inc., from its Charlotte, NC headquarters.
