For measuring the clamping and holding mechanism on various pallet-based applications
Pallet Force Gauge for Mazak Size 50
Clamping force measuring gauges for pallets are intended to quickly measure the holding force of individual clamping heads. Pallet clamping adapters are per-application based, and are fitted according to the specifications of the customer's pallet system. Clamping adapters can be or have been provided for various pallet systems: BERG, Rohm, Mazak, OTT, Schunk, Erowa, and others.

Pallet clamping adapters are per-application based, and are fitted according to the specifications of the customer's pallet system.
Complete kit can include universal ForceCheck display readout, adapter cable, pallet clamping test adapter(s), and other accessories according to pallet clamping specifications.
Pallet adapters can be or have been developed for pallet systems such as: • BERG Spanntechnik
• OTT-Jakob Spanntechnik
• And many others, whether foreign or domestic pallet clamping systems.
Most likely. Contact us with the specifications of the pallet or workholding system, especially regarding the pallet heads/cones and clamping mechanisms to be measured. We specialize in developing unique and weird solutions for our customers all the time -- all while providing quality machine and engineering standards.
I am not sure what specifications are necessary for my pallet system. Can you help me?
Contact us and we will certainly try. We are already familiar with all kinds of pallet clamping systems in existence (and we even sell them along with accessories), and we also enjoy creating custom solutions for our customers.
Why is checking pallet holding force that important?
Like any part of machining or repetitive manufacturing process, verification of correct pallet holding and clamping ensures workpiece quality and prevents future machine and pallet system damage. If any mechanism or force is found to be imbalanced on the pallet clamping interface, testing can prevent machine downtime and ensure consistent repeatability on pallet exchanges.

Pull studs are the interface between devices, pallets and the clamping systems of the machine tool. For applications with two, four or more clamping heads, solid bolts are used for center position, sword bolts are used to determine the angled position and retaining bolts are exclusively used for vertical positioning. Versions are available for both front and rear installation. Parallel to the applications of the BERG clamping heads with support cone, screw-in bolts are available as solid bolts and retaining bolts with screw thread. These are used for very high drawing-in forces and maximum stability in a minimum amount of space.
NSM-HV series zero point clamping heads are used for workholding pallet clamping as well as other applications on machine tools. With the clamping heads and matching retention bolts, extremely tight tolerance clamping position repeat precision can be achieved.
NSM PV zero point clamping heads are used for fixture and pallet clamping on machine tools. With the clamping heads and the associated clamping bolts provide for the highest levels of clamping position repeatability. Due to the mechanical integrated booster and lock, the clamping head is also suitable for pallets, tombstones, pivot tables and vertical applications. The chuck can be configured as double, 4-fold and custom multi-application.
BERG Spanntechnik series SPH clamping heads are primarily used for horizontal pallet clamping. The heads form the basis of a highly rigid, high precision repeatable workholding solution. In addition to clamping heads, non-active units are available for setup and storage stations. Heads are supplied as a matched set with 0.005mm accuracy.
Clamping heads of the series SPH-V are principally used in machining centers for vertical pallet clamping. The series SPH-V is based on the basic principle of the SPH. The additional internal self-locking system retains the clamping force even when hydraulic pressure is not present. It is possible to machine workpieces on a vertical pallet after clamping without a hydraulic connection - without any reduction in safety!
SPM-HV series pallet clamping heads are used for pallet clamping on single or double axis indexing tables. With the clamping heads and matching tapered rings, maximum workpiece position repeatability and precision is possible.
Hydrodock units form the basis of a very compact and flexible clamping system. They were originally conceptualized as for head change systems on large machining centers, but also find applications in diverse areas such as injection molding machines.
