Big Kaiser has released the HDC Straight Shank toolholder. The slim design provides improved balance and concentricity in addition to enabling it to reach into confined areas. The holders can be clamped into other base holders to extend overall reach of the tool assembly and avoid the need for special tools. The slim nose design provides the necessary clearance for use with deep workpiece access, making it an effective solution for five-axis toolholding requirements.

Hydraulic chucks are suitable for machining processes that require high accuracy, including drills, reamers, ball mills, end mills, diamond reamers and grinding tools. They are effective for high-precision machining in automotive, aerospace, medical, and die and mold.

The tool holders are simple to use, with only one hex key wrench needed to clamp or loosen the cutting tool, making tool changes fast and easy without special equipment. It is designed to achieve 0.00012" total indicator reading at five times diameter. Optional straight collets can also increase the range and versatility of each size.
