The NEW Gripsafe is a vital Health and Safety instrument. The facts are clear – if your chuck is poorly maintained, has damage or excessive wear, grip force can be seriously compromised.

This is relevant on all lathes, from manual through to full CNC lathes and turning centres, whether industrial or educational. No one can afford to ignore the loss of grip that chucks succumb to over time, which can rapidly become a hazard if not maintained and monitored regularly. Pratt Burnerd believe that the Gripsafe will prove to become a welcome tool for Health and Safety managers and lathe operators alike, who have to meet exacting safety standards.

The Gripsafe ensures reliable and accurate measurement of the gripping force being applied by the chuck under both static and rotating conditions. All that is required is to clamp the Gripsafe unit in the chuck and quickly run the tests, with instant results.

You will know immediately if your chuck needs attention or replacing.

The Gripsafe, utilising the latest ‘state of the art’ WiFi communication technology and unique embedded software provides end-users with many valuable features including providing extensive data collection and analysis and storage.
