Big Kaiser’s HDC Straight Shank holder has a slim design that is said to provide balance, concentricity and reach for 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 clearance for use with deep workpiece access, making them a solution for five-axis toolholding requirements. 

One hex key wrench is needed to clamp or loosen the cutting tool, enabling tool changes without special equipment. Every HDC toolholder is capable of 0.00012” TIR at five times diameter. Optional straight collets can also be used to increase the range and versatility of each size.

  • Be Kind To To Your Collets

    Collet toolholders are too important to the machining process to use them incorrectly. Follow this simple advice.  

  • The Real Cost Of Runout

    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.
