Kildare Tooling are privileged to be the official agent for Haimer in the UK and Ireland. The Haimer range of spindle tooling and associated equipment is widely regarded as one of the leading ranges available today. Precision manufactured in Germany to the highest specification, Haimer products have become first choice for tool holding in many leading Automotive, Aerospace and Energy manufacturing facilities throughout the world.

As well as the more common ER Collet, Weldon and Shell Mill holders, Haimer are renowned for being market leaders in heat-shrink technology. This tool holding method is fast becoming the ‘must have’ option for precision manufacturers with many benefits far outweighing the older and more cumbersome hydraulic tool holding technology. Five-axis machining is a particular area where shrink-fit tool holders provide exceptional benefit, with the regular need for long reach holders and access problems being common, shrink-fit is often the only option. With exceptional clamping forces, unrivaled run-out accuracy, numerous extension options and fantastic application accessibility, Haimer shrink-fit tool holding has the answers for most applications.
To further enhance their impressive range of tool holding options, Haimer also provide a number of unique tool holding designs. Ranges such as HG Collet, Power Collet and Safe-Lock are available for those high torque applications that demand maximum clamping forces.
