Check the clamping force

A regular check of clamping force is vital for a safe, precise, and productive process. Do you manufacture at the highest possible metal removal rates? Perhaps your clamping device can do more than you think! Those who face tough competition can no longer afford to manufacture with »theoretical clamping forces«. Nevertheless the DIN EN 1550 requires that static clamping force measurement must be performed by the manufacturer at regular intervals.
 

Work faster and more cost-efficiently

In practical applications the holding power for solid components must be extremely strong. On the other hand, increasingly thin-walled and sensitive workpieces that are already contour near net, forged, or deep-drawn are being processed completely on a machine. If something is clamped too strongly a sensitive part can be deformed. Only by precisely measuring the clamping force, you can increase your metal removal rates and thus work faster, more productively, and more cost-efficiently.
 

With TESTit you are on the safe side!

O.D. clamping I

Clamping force measurement of O.D. clamping devices with a round clamping surface
 

Sizes: AS18
Use:

  • Clamping force measurement of clamping heads and collets
  • Clamping force measurement of 3-jaw chucks

Software: HAINBUCH measurement and archiving software

 

O.D. clamping II

Clamping force measurement of O.D. clamping devices with a round clamping surface or two opposing clamping surfaces
 

Sizes: AS32, AS65
Use:

  • Clamping force measurement of clamping heads and collets
  • Clamping force measurement of 3-jaw chucks
  • Clamping force measurement of 2-jaw chucks
  • Clamping force measurement of stationary chucks

Software: HAINBUCH measurement and archiving software

 

I.D. clamping

Clamping force measurement of I.D. clamping devices with a round clamping surface
 

Sizes: IS28, IS50, IS70
Use:

  • Clamping force measurement of segmented clamping bushings

Software: HAINBUCH measurement and archiving software

This device amazes me again and again. We use the TESTit for indexing chucks with and without counterbalancing. It shows us if an error with the balancing occurs and we can adjust it immediately. Finally, we have a measuring device that also works with rotating spindle.
