Kitagawa NorthTech offers its Digital Grip Force Analyzer software and kit (PC version) designed to enable users to easily, accurately and quickly analyze and measure grip force performance of their CNC lathes and turning centers via a desktop PC, laptop or tablet. The software comes bundled as a complete kit with rugged carrying case, super powerful Bluetooth dongle loaded with PC analyzer software, digital load meter, and the traditional handheld pendant for manual diagnostics, testing and measurement.
Once the user inputs the required data and commences a run test, the software will compile a G-code program to run the test on the machine. Once the test has run and is completed, the software will then plot on the PC screen the actual gripping force of the machine at all rpm speeds the user entered.
