About Gous Induction Shrink Fit Machines

Gous shrink fit machines use electric induction to heat shrink fit tool holders, expanding the metal and allowing a tool to be inserted into the tool holder. These machines are used to properly heat and cool the toolholders quickly, reducing the time needed to change cutting tools, and ensuring the tool holders are evenly heated and not overheated.

The head unit contains both an induction heating coil and circular air outlet for cooling air. By twisting the handle, the head unit can be easily moved up and down, which makes loading cutting tools into shrink fit tool holders fast and easy.

They feature a simple, user-friendly control panel on the front of the machine with buttons to start stop cycles and adjust timers and power settings.

Gous heat shrink machines heat and cool a single tool holder at a time.

Why use a Gous Shrink Fit Machine?

  • Increase the life of your shrink fit tool holder
  • Reduces time taken to change tools in and out
  • Correct amount of heating for a given tool diameter
  • Even heating
  • Safe to use
  • Easy to use
  • Suits multiple taper systems

Some tips:

  • Don't "double" heat tool holders if they heated enough, take it through a full heating and cooling cycle each time
  • Don't overhang the tooling, frequently incorrect fitting of tools to far out of the holder can produce a shelf in the holder, which stops you from using the full shank under normal conditions.
  • Recommended for carbide cutting tools only
  • NEVER use a torch on heat shrink holders

Induction Shrink Fit Machine Features

Induction heating diagram

Rapid Heating

The unit without hot-air source, The eddy current gives out heat from high frequency magnetic field. Shorter cycle time and easy operation.

Heating Efficiency

Higher Efficiency

Only the part of the tool holder required to be heated is heated, and the tool remains much cooler.

Air cooling diagram

Builtin Cooling Function

The head unit houses both the induction coil and a circular air outlet for cooling air.

Induction Shrink Fit Machine Operation

Operation for Inserting Tools

  1. Prepare the tool holder by cleaning the outside and inside, for optimal heating and internal contact
  2. Prepare the cutting tool to be inserted, making sure the shank is clean and free of oils
  3. Program in the correct settings for the given tool holder and diameter of cutting tool to be inserted
  4. Insert tool holder into the shrink fit machine
  5. Lower head unit with heating element over tool holder, leave in place for 6-15sec
  6. When the heating is complete, you will hear a audible "beep"
  7. Raise the head unit
  8. Safely place the cutting tool into the tool holder, being cautious that the tool holder is safety hazard (very hot)
  9. Relower the head unit, and switch on the cooling unit (location to the side)
  10. Once the tool holder is cooled to room temperature, raise the head unit and remove the tool holder with fitted cutting tool

Operation for Removing Tools

  1. Prepare the tool holder by cleaning the outside for optimal heating
  2. Program in the correct settings for the given tool holder and diameter of cutting tool to be removed
  3. Lower head unit with heating element over tool holder, leave in place for 6-15sec
  4. If you have wire grippers, place them onto the cutting tool, but not below the heating element
  5. When the heating is complete, you will hear a audible "beep"
  6. Remove the tool, being mindful that the tool may be hot
  7. Switch on the cooling unit (location to the side)
  8. Once the tool holder is cooled to room temperature, raise the head unit and remove the tool holder
