This video gives an introduction to using dial test indicators. Whether you’re measuring a part setup on your machine, or checking machine geometry as you build a machine tool, indicators are essential tools in the machinist’s and machine builders toolbox.
The Haas Chip Lift is ideal for high-volume chip production or machine cleanup. The Haas Chip Lift is a belt-type chip conveyor that collects chips from a machine’s standard auger chute, and conveys them into a 55-gallon drum or hopper. The unit is plugged directly into the machine, and can be moved from machine to machine.
