Accurately measure tool-clamping force on machining centers.
Knowing that the tool-clamping force meets machine builder specifications is of vital importance. Correct clamping force on machining centers provides a sound connection between spindle and tool. A drop in clamping force can indicate worn or broken springs and other problems with the drawbar. Insufficient clamping force may result in accidents should the tool unclamp during machining.
This critical performance – the tool-clamping force – is often never measured after a machine is put into service. Regular verification allows problems to be detected early so maintenance and repairs can be scheduled. As a result, emergencies and unexpected downtime can be avoided. When troubleshooting, ForceCheck allows quick diagnostic verification of drawbar performance. Additionally, ISO 9000 requires periodic verification of a machine’s important accuracy parameters.Technical Features
The ForceCheck pull-force gage measures the clamping force of power drawbars on machining centers.Retention Knobs
For proper measurement of pull-force on standard taper machines, the correct retention knob for the machine must be used with the force-sensing bar. We recommend always using the same retention knob for measuring clamping force.
ForceCheck gages are available for all steep and HSK taper sizes, as well as KM and Capto. In addition, we can make special adapters for custom tapers, chucks, collets, or any unique clamping systems.
Sets include force-sensing bar(s), readout unit, connecting cable, carrying case, rechargeable NiMH battery, and battery charger. Please specify battery charger voltage (110V or 220V), as well as display language (English, German, or Spanish).
