WESTEC 2013: Drawbar Force Monitoring
Hydraulic ClampForce Gage monitors drawbar force, which is critical to preventing a machine crash. In seconds, it indicates in ft/lb the amount of force being applied to the toolholder. ClampForce Gage hydraulic heads are available in 5000, 10,000, and 15,000 ft/lb (6779, 13,558, 20337 N•m) configurations. Adapters are available for CAT, BT, KM, CAPTO, and HSK spindles. Also featured are Spindle Cleaner Kits to supply proper spindle maintenance to maintain good tool life and to hold tight tolerances. Spindle cleaners are made from anodized aluminum and are strong enough to not collapse in the spindle while cleaning. They are available in 30, 40, 45, and 50 tapers and feature replaceable cleaning strips.
