Big Kaiser’s super slim type of hydraulic chucks (HDC) for HSK-E25 machine spindles are toolholders for precision finishing processes in confined areas with drills, reamers, ball mills, end mills, diamond reamers and grinding tools. Cutting tools with shank diameters of 3 or 4 mm can be clamped directly and are suited for high-speed micromachining applications in the automotive, aerospace, medical, die and electronics industries, the company says.

The super slim HDC can be clamped and unclamped with a single wrench. According to the company, these chucks can clamp ultra-small end mills and drills directly, without needing a reduction sleeve.

The external body diameter of the chuck nose is 0.551” (14 mm), and a gauge length of 1.575” (40 mm). Each tool is precision balanced for speeds up to 60,000 rpm and runout accuracy of less than 3 microns (0.00012”) at 5×D.

  • The Knob Problem

    The retention knob is an unmistakably critical component of the machining process. However, the tightening of the knob itself can lead to the toolholder not seating securely in the machine. You may be losing tool life to knob tightness without even knowing it.

    Far from being outdated by the latest machine tool technology, angle heads often prove an ideal complement by pushing done-in-one capabilities even further. Proper application, however, requires attention to their limitations as well as their benefits.
