ITC simplifies spindle retention force measurement with BIG KAISER Dyna Force
Industrial Tooling Corporation (ITC) Ltd has now 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 very important and needs to be checked regularly as potential problems can arise and eventually result in serious damage to the machine tool.
Regular measurement will reliably identify, in a timely manner, an insufficient retention force of the spindle clamping mechanism. This 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 machining results of superior-quality. Customers are thus encouraged to utilise the company’s precise machine testing equipment which, when used regularly for inspection of machine tools, can reliably prevent damage and noticeably improve process reliability and stability.
