Easy HSK Stroke Measurement with the New Precision Digital Stroke Gauge
CNC operators know how frustrating it can be to get an accurate stroke measurement on HSK clamping sets.
With the new patent-pending, Precision Digital Stroke Gauge technology from Precision Drive Systems (PDS), more accurate stroke adjustment measurements are revealed without cumbersome calipers.
This easy-to-use, design is accurate to ±.001, works in any position and has a stable base that provides reliable, repeatable measurements without looking at the spindle nose.
How stroke measurements are simplified with the Precision Digital Stroke Gauge:
- Actuate the spindle tool release
- Place the gauge against the tool’s face and zero it out
- Set the gauge on a flat surface
- Check and compare the measurement displayed against the specification
- Adjust & re-check until the stroke is within tolerance
