Force Measuring Device targets machine tool clamping systems.

May 28, 2014

Designed to measure pull-in force of machine tool clamping systems, F-senso Device can detect changes in force before they affect machining quality. Product is engineered for use with clamping systems for smaller tool shanks, including HSK A 25, A 32, and A 40 as well as steep taper SK [CAT/BT 30. Fitted with adapters for HSK or steep taper shanks, F-senso is pulled into spindle taper of machine tool and provides exact measure of pull-in force, covering range of 0–3,370 lb. Read More
