Big Kaiser has expanded its range of Big Capto toolholders to include the C4 size. C4 is becoming increasingly popular as a quick-change system for turret tooling on lathes, according to company.

In accordance with ISO 26623-1, the polygon shape of the taper on the toolholder provides for repeatable accuracy and torque transmission. The system complements Big Kaiser’s Mega chuck rotating tooling program.

Big Capto C4 is now offered for rotating toolholders and turning tools for lathes. It is designed for holding a variety of common inserts for different approach angles and clearance requirements in both left- and right-hand orientations. These compact and rigid tools also allow for large depths of cut and high feed rates.
