Drawbar Clamping Force Gage


CNC Machines using pull-studs for tool retention experience a slow but progressive loss of tool holding pressure from the time the machine is new. This little known fact has a major impact on surface finishes, cutting tool life, and on your productivity. Testing a drawbar requires a force gage which simulates a tool being held in the spindle. The Clamprite Gage uses a common tool holder as the interface between the gage and machine spindle, eliminating the need for a high-priced precision adapter for each different spindle size (only HSK-type spindles require an adapter).

The Clamprite Gage was designed for accurate spindle tension testing right on the machine. The actual pressure exerted by the spindle drawbar mechanism is read directly on the dial, so there is never a need for any calculations or conversions. Drawbar force checking is made easy using the Clamprite drawbar force gage. Drawbar testing takes less than one minute, so production time is barely affected. Its simple and rugged design requires no batteries, electrical cords or delicate electronic components to pre-set, calibrate or burn out.
