Proper tightening is an important first step of high-precision cutting. Big Kaiser’s Torque Fit notifies the user of a correc

tly set torque value via an audible buzzer. If overtightening occurs, the error LED light will flash.

The Torque Fit was developed to replace multiple torque wrenches and has adapters available for all common machine tool interfaces such as CAT, BT, SK, HSK and BIG CAPTO, making it an economical investment. For maximum convenience, torque values for all Big Kaiser-made collet chucks are preset. The operator can, however, use a generic setting to tighten any collet chuck with a torque value up to 80 Nm (60 ft-lbs).

Big Kaiser, a global leader in premium high-precision tooling systems and solutions for the metalworking industries, will be showcasing the Torque Fit at IMTS 2018 booth #431610, along with several other innovative products.
