Clamprite Gage Kits provide an easy, accurate, and economical method of checking the drawbar force of your machine.

Kits are furnished in a foam fitted, heavy-gauge metal tool box (with accessory tray) and include the gage head, a spindle adapter, and an internal transfer screw coupling that accepts all pull studs.

The universal gage head adapts to every size and type of spindle, including CAT, BT, ISO, HSK, CAPTO, KV, KM, VM, NC5 and others.

Select your kit by spindle type and maximum drawbar force you will be testing. Order additional adapters as required.

Drawbar tension is commonly 1800 to 2500 Pounds of Force for 40 taper spindles, 3600 to 4800 for most 50 taper spindles, and higher for heavy duty machines or larger spindle tapers. Drawbar force varies considerable from machine to machine. Check the owner's manual for your machine.

Does your manual give the drawbar force in kilograms (kg) or kilo-newtons (KN)? Click here for the conversion chart.

Determine the maximum force for your machine and the tapers you need then order the kit that suits your needs.

For example, if you only have CAT 40 machines, you would order the CG3K40C kit which will test all CAT 40 machines using your retention knob for the machine being tested. If you also have BT 40 machines you would add the BT 40 adapter sold separately. (Note: most CAT & BT 40 drawbars have a force under 3,000 lbs. If your machine specifies a higher force you would order the 5,000 lb gage kit with the adapters you need.)

If you have both CAT 40 and CAT 50 machines you would want the CG5K40/50C gage kit. Add any additional adapters as required.

                               Clamprite HSK Spindle Adapters

HSK spindles must maintain factory specified drawbar force to properly seat the arbors. Test HSK spindles frequently!

Our product sheet only shows the E and A size adapters. Call for information if you have the F or other size adapter and we will tell you which of our part numbers corresponds to your adapter. For example, the HSK F size spindle can be tested with the next size larger adapter in type A configuration. Most of Clamprite's spindle adapters are listed in the type A configuration.

If you have already purchased a gage kit with the universal gage head you can simply add the HSK adapters you need. If you only have HSK spindles you will need to order the appropriate gage head as shown below.

HSK spindle data can be confusing. If you want to end the confusion and learn the whole story, order our HSK Handbook.
