Providing a way to check clamping forces in manufacturing processes
the Hainbuch TESTit clamping force gauge is available from Leader Chuck Systems. Capable of measuring clamping forces greater than 200kN, the TESTit is claimed to be the only device currently capable of measuring internal and external workholding systems, such as mandrels and manual/powered jaw or collet chucks.
In operation, the new TESTit gauge is completely wireless with all the clamping force values transmitted via Bluetooth to a display device, such as a smart phone, desktop or tablet PC, or PDA with the appropriate software installed. Featuring automatic sensor recognition and a Li-ion rechargeable battery for 5+ hours of operating time, the TESTit clamping force gauge measures stationary or rotating holding forces both internally and externally.
