The machine-integrated drawbar force gauge automates drawbar force measurement. With a wireless force sensor stored in the tool changer, a machine can periodically automatically check the drawbar without stopping production. Drawbar force is returned to the machine control via a wireless receiver, automatically alerting the operator if insufficient force is detected.
ForceCheck collet force gauges measure the drawbar pullback force of a 5C, 16C, or 20C collet workholding system. Measurement of collet drawbar force provides an easy way to ensure correct force from machine to machine, or between setups for different parts.
Measuring bars, complete sets, and base units for measuring drawbar force on a Steep Taper (SK) ISO standard spindle.
Hydraulic tool holders are an excellent ultra-low option with added benefits such as vibration damping and ease of use. One of the major challenges with hydraulic holders is determining if they are still functioning correctly over time. Failure of the hydaulic holding mechanism is often not apparent until cutter slippage occurs, potentially causing damage to both the holder and a scrapped workpiece. ForceCheck hydraulic tool holder force gauges provide a quick and reliable way to verify a tool holder is still operating correctly. The sensor measures the force at the center of the hydraulic sleeve. Using the gauge is as easy as inserting the sensor in the hydraulic holder. Once the actuation piston compresses the hydraulic fluid in the expansion sleeve, the resulting force is shown on a handheld digital display. The measured force can be compared to a new or known-good hydraulic tool holder.
Measuring bars, complete sets, and base units for measuring drawbar force on Coromant Capto spindles (Polygonal Shank Taper - PSK).
The ForceCheck wireless drawbar force gauge is based on the same technology as the industry-leading ForceCheck gauge. With the added convenience of wireless operation, larger machines and hard-to-reach spindles are easier to check. In addition, the unit offers the optional capability of data logging on a USB stick.
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, drawbar performance can quickly be verified.
