Press release date: May 20, 2013

For many precision jobs using a face driver, it is critically important to know the exact force applied to the workpiece by the hydraulic tailstock. Riten now allows users to eliminate any guesswork, especially on older machines. The company's new Force Gauge, in conjunction with the tailstock’s hydraulic cylinder pressure reading, accurately calibrates the lathe or grinder to deliver the precise load for faster setup and repeatable, scrap-free production. The liquid-filled, anti-vibration analog gauge displays force from 200 to 6,000 lbs., and features dual indicators: the black needle shows actual force at any point in the test procedure, while the red needle becomes permanently set at the highest reading recorded during the period. Gauge accuracy is 1.5% full scale. The gauge can be ordered as a complete kit, or by specifying individual components. The kit includes the gauge assembly, 4 MT, 5 MT and 1 1/2 SS mounting shanks, a male and a bull nose point to accommodate different center hole diameters, and a lockable padded carrying case. Additional bull nose points are available, as well as specialized points and customized shanks. Riten can supply any configuration to fit the workpiece.
