    TESTit clamping force measuring device | TEST module for I.D. clamping | size IS28 | clamping Ø 28 mm

    Logo Hainbuch GmbH Marbach Workholding Technology

    A regular check of the clamping force and draw-in force is imperative for a safe, precise, and productive process. These days no one can afford to manufacture with »theoretical clamping forces/draw-in forces«. Not to mention the fact that DIN EN 1550 requires that static clamping force measurements be carried out at regular intervals. The TESTit clamping force gauge measures and records the clamping force for O.D. clamping and I.D. clamping and even the draw-in force of hollow tapered shank locations. TESTit consists of two parts: The basic unit, which is the IT module, and the measuring units, which are the TEST modules. You only need the IT module once – regardless of whether you want to measure the clamping force at O.D. clamping or I.D. clamping or the draw-in force. It is so-to-speak the basis. Depending on the measurement application, there are different TEST modules that you can easily connect to the IT module via plug & play. Even special design TEST modules fit on the IT module. All aspects have been carefully considered! With TESTit you do not leave clamping force and draw-in force up to chance; you do prevent workpiece deformation and reduce scrap.

    • Draw-in force measurement of hollow tapered shanks
    • Two units, connected with plug & play: IT module – the basic unit, TEST module – add on for various measurement applications

Basic knowledge about measuring equipment

In the world of machining, accuracy is paramount. Workpieces must be manufactured with the highest precision in order to ultimately deliver a flawless result to the customer. This is where measurement equipment comes into play. 

The general definition of the term measuring equipment: It refers to methods and systems for measuring quantities such as length, mass, force, pressure or electric current. Also known are measuring devices from measurement technology according to DIN 1319-2 under the term measuring equipment. Measuring instruments illustrate the measured values by means of scales or digital displays. 

In industry, protractors, dial gauges, tension gauges and calipers are used in particular. In machining production, there are numerous applications that require the use of precise testing instruments, for example the measurement of clamping and retracting force or the measurement of workpieces by means of a test pin.

Measuring techniques and devices at a glance

The following table shows which measuring devices are suitable for which measurements:

Two decisive reasons that speak for the use of measurement equipment

The use of measuring equipment is primarily for quality control in the production process. A wide variety of measuring devices can be used for this purpose. Bore gauges, for example, can check the internal dimensions of your bores and digital dial gauges can detect differences in length. Various measuring devices are available, both for measuring forces and for measuring geometric values such as surface, height or concentricity.

In addition to quality control, safety is also an important factor, which is why dealing with the topic of measurement technology is of high importance. When measuring clamping force, for example, it is not enough to fall back on theoretical values. Damage to chucks can be detected at an early stage through dynamic clamping force measurement and work accidents can thus be avoided.

Precise measurement technology for the exact determination of measured variables in the Tool-Arena

When it comes to measuring technology, the Tool-Arena relies on strong partners such as Hainbuch, Zoller and Mahr. From the classic caliper to the large measuring table, everything is available to advance your quality assurance and data acquisition. The DIN 1319 standard, which has been in existence since 1942, ensures the quality of Tool-Arena's measuring technology.
