Industrial Tooling Corporation (ITC) Ltd has introduced the new BIG KAISER Dyna Force, a device for measuring the retention force of machine tool spindles.
The retention force of a machine tool spindle is critically important and needs to be checked regularly as potential problems can arise and eventually result in severe damage to the machine tool.
Regular measurement will promptly and reliably identify an insufficient retention force of a spindle clamping mechanism. A retention force which is too low can lead to reduced rigidity and unwelcome spindle vibration, loss of machining quality and poor surface finishes. It can also have a considerable impact on the longevity of tool life. By ensuring that the retention force remains at the correct level, as specified in the manufacturers’ machine tool operating instructions, cutting performance can be reliably maintained and improved.
BIG KAISER strongly believes that the smooth interaction between all components is essential for achieving superior-quality machining results. When high-quality, precision machine testing equipment is used regularly for inspection of machine tools, damage can be reliably prevented process reliability and stability improved.
