The HFT swivel-head force gauge from Huntingdon Fusion Techniques is a resistance welding tool designed for measuring the force between the electrodes in resistance welders used in many types of metal fabrication, including the aerospace and automotive industries. It measures force from 0 kg to 1,000 kg, with ranges changeable between kg, N and lb. The swivelling and rotating head assembly facilitates access to weld electrode configurations in tight spaces. Features include a safety handle, wrist strap and large target pads that allow easy access by electrodes up to 20-mm in diameter, in virtually any configuration. The tool comes in a rugged carrying case and includes a 110-V to 220-V battery charger. Huntingdon Fusion Techniques
