The Mega ER Grip by BIG Daishowa is a high-precision collet and toolholder system featuring runout accuracy of 0.00012" (3 microns) at 5 × D.

An increased collet/body contact area improves rigidity and clamping force. The Mega ER Grip system is available with BIG-PLUS (CAT), HSK and Capto interfaces.
