Big Kaiser's jet-through hydraulic chucksClick image to enlargeBig Kaiser has expanded its jet-through hydraulic chuck line to include the BCV interface and additional inch sizes.

The HDC jet-through type holders are ideal for high-precision five axis machining with maximum RPM of 35,000 and clamping range of .25-in. to .5-in. and fit nearly any application in the automotive, aerospace, medical, and die and mold industries.

An exclusive thread features allows for convertible coolant delivery between jet-through coolant and center-through coolant. Jet-through hydraulic chucks are ideal tool holders for finishing applications that would benefit from improved coolant delivery. The coolant flows through the end of the tool holder and is angled to direct coolant to the cutting tool tip, greatly improving surface finish and tool life. 

The tool holders use only one hex key wrench to clamp or loosen the cutting tool, making tool changes fast and easy without special equipment. Every HDC toolholder is guaranteed to .00012” TIR at five times diameter.
