For hydraulic tool holders:
Series 495.250 ForceCheck Hydraulic Tool Holder Force Gauges
For workholding collets:
Series 495.245 ForceCheck Workholding Collet Force Gauge
With the ForceCheck collet force gauge, the clamping forces on collets and hydraulic tool holders can be measured to obtain accurate machining specifications while fulfilling ISO standard requirements. Available in complete sets for 1/4, 1/2, 3/4, 1, 10 mm, 16 mm, 20 mm, 25 mm and other diameters. The ForceCheck collet force gauge allows tool holder and workholding collet holding force to be quickly and easily measured.
Because it is problematic to measure, this critical holding force is typically not checked, even though it plays an important role in manufacturing repeatability.
TAC Rockford, makers of the ForceCheck drawbar clamping measurement system, offers a simple, efficient, and consistently accurate collet force measurement unit.
With this system you can accurately and consistently measure the clamping forces on collets and hydraulic tool holders to obtain accurate machining specifications while fulfilling your company's or customer's ISO standard requirements.
Complete sets include a durable display with standard 9 volt battery, connecting cable, carrying case, and measuring bar.
Individual measuring bars for any size diameter are available.

ForceCheck collet force gauges provide a quick and easy way to check force on collet workholding systems.
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.
