HOUSTEX 2013: Electronic Strain Gage

Electronic Strain Gage 
Electronic version of the ClampForce Gage, a universal gage designed for checking drawbar force, is available.  The gage has adapters available to check V-Flange, Capto, HSK, and KM spindles. The new electronic strain gage features an LCD digital screen, memory recall, and multiple machine memory storage.  Included is a software package that can be used to program the gage and give an alert of change of drawbar force.  Monitoring the drawbar is important for scheduling machine maintenance and increasing tool life.  As drawbar force weakens, clamping force on the toolholder is diminished which leads to excessive harmonics, chatter and ultimately a machine crash.
