Big Kaiser’s Torque Fit is a tightening fixture for collet chucks with an integrated torque measuring system. This device is designed to ensure that a collet chuck is correctly tightened.

The tightening fixture notifies the user of a correctly set torque value via an audible buzzer. If overtightening occurs, the error LED light will flash.

The tightening fixture was developed to replace multiple torque wrenches and has adapters available for all common machine tool interfaces such as CAT, BT, SK, HSK and BIG CAPTO. For maximum convenience, torque values for all Big Kaiser-made collet chucks are preset. The operator can, however, use a generic setting to tighten any collet chuck with a torque value up to 80 Nm (60 foot-pounds).
