Wireless Machine Force Measuring
Measure turning-center (chuck) force, or power drawbar force wirelessly. When crucial measurements on force, torque, and clamping tension inside machine turning-centers and power drawbars, ForceCheck wireless gauges are a viable solution. ForceCheck gauges from TAC Rockford continue to make force checking easier for both the machine user and builder / maintenance professional with a custom wireless measuring application.
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.
The ForceCheck wireless chuck force gauge is designed to quickly and accurately measure holding force and speed on chucks. Verifying chuck holding force allows manufacturers to improve the repeatability of a manufacturing process by checking actual holding force under dynamic (rotating) conditions, as well as perform critical preventative maintenance checks. Contact us for other clamping diameters and extension rings, as well as 4+ jaw chucks.
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.
