Clamp Check

Clamp Check

Why draw bar force needs to be measured

  • Draw bar force gauge allows early detection of problems with the spindle pressure spring system.
  • Verification of performance of the clamping system helps prevent damage to spindle taper and other machine features critical to machining accuracy and ultimately helps to keep the machine in good condition and safety of operator.
  • Draw bar is often the first thing to wear  out in machine.
  • As draw bar force weakens, clamping force on the tool holder also weakens, which leads to excessive noise, vibration marks and ultimately tool breakage and loss of accuracy.
  • Monitoring draw bar force is important for scheduling machine maintenance and increasing tool and machine life.
  • Clamp check is a device that provide the easiest way to check the drew bar force.
  • It requires no battery or electronic components.
  • Just need to clamp the gauge in place of an adaptor on the machine spindle and note down the reading on the dial.
  • If it indicates 225% less than the value prescribed by the manufacturer, consult your maintenance department immediately.
  • Available with all sizes of BT,SK,HSK & ISO.
