Easily Inspect Machine Spindle Tapers With BIG KAISER's Dyna Contact

BIG KAISER, a global leader in premium high-precision tooling systems and solutions for the metalworking industries, has added the Dyna Contact to its product offering. The ceramic taper gage allows inspection of machine spindle tapers at a glance. 

Dyna Contact is a precise gage used to check the geometric accuracy of a machine spindle taper by visually comparing the contact of the gage to the spindle. A layout dye is applied to the Dyna Contact before inserting into the machine spindle. Upon removal, an operator can easily check for taper contact and determine if the machine spindle will have proper contact with tool holders. The Dyna Contact is compatible with all steep taper specifications, including CAT, BT and DIN. 

The ceramic material of the Dyna Contact makes it more thermally stable than steel. This taper gage is also rustproof, 10x more wear resistant than steel and not subject to age deterioration. Having a product to help check the machine spindle is essential to ensure high-precision machining is taking place at all times.
