MMS SEPTEMBER 2018 148 IMTS 2018 Products On Display Fixture Notifies User of Proper Torque Value Via Audible Buzzer Big Kaiser's Torque Fit is a tightening fixture for collet chucks with an integrated torque mea- suring system. The fixture facilitates collet chuck tightening by notifying the user of a correctly set torque value via an audi- ble buzzer. If overtighten- ing occurs, the error LED light flashes. The fixture has been developed to replace multiple torque wrenches. It has adapters available for most machine tool interfaces, including CAT, BT, SK, HSK and Big Capto. Torque values for all Big Kaiser collet chucks are preset, though the fixture can tighten any collet chuck with a torque value up to 80 Nm (60 foot-pounds). | Big Kaiser | West, Level 3 & Annex, Booth 431610 Hopper Provides Batch-to-Batch Powder Management for 3D Printing The PowderTrace hopper, from Renishaw and LPW Tech- nology, is an external powder silo option for the RenAM 500 series of metal additive manufacturing (AM) systems.
