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.

    A seemingly small amount of runout can still be too large for the tool. Reduce this runout, and tool life or productivity may dramatically increase.

  • Why Use Hydraulic Toolholders

    The book on hydraulic toolholders is that they are fussy to set, fragile to operate and expensive to buy. So why do many shops choose them over other holders that seem less demanding? This Chicago mold builder has good reasons for its choice.

  • Too Small To Touch

    Hummingbird takes on machining work that is too small for most shops to handle. In fact, Hummingbird tries not to handle it either. To accurately machine the tiniest parts, this shop relies on processes that are as hands-off as possible.
