ITC simplifies spindle retention force measurement with Big Kaiser Dyna Force

Industrial Tooling Corporation (ITC) has introduced the Big Kaiser Dyna Force, a device for measuring the retention force of machine tool spindles. The retention force of a machine tool spindle needs to be checked regularly as potential problems can arise that could result in serious damage to the machine tool.

Regular measurement will identify any insufficient retention force of the spindle clamping mechanism. Left unchecked, there is potential for reduced rigidity and unwelcome spindle vibration, not to mention loss of machining quality and poor surface finish. This issue can also have a considerable impact on the longevity of cutting tools. By ensuring that the retention force remains at the correct level, as specified in the machine manufacturer’s 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 machine testing equipment which, when used regularly for the inspection of machine tools, can reliably prevent damage and noticeably improve process reliability.
