Hainbuch Clamping force measurement now available over machine control
Germany – Hainbuch's Testit software is now available on a data carrier for installation on Siemens CNC.
According to the company, a separate laptop is not needed anymore and manufacturing with "theoretical clamping forces" is also a thing of the past. Thanks to Testit, the operator always knows the actual maintenance status of the clamping device, and what clamping forces exist. The Testit clamping force gauge together with the CNC executes a target-actual comparison of the maintenance status of a clamping device.
Hainbuch said that the technology is suitable for a range of reasons, including machining of easily deformable components, where only a very small margin of holding force is available.
