The slim design provides superior balance, concentricity and is ideal for reaching into confined areas. 

Hydraulic chucks are excellent tool holders for machining processes that require high accuracy such as drills, reamers, ball mills, end mills, diamond reamers and grinding tools. They are the perfect tool holder for high precision machining in automotive, aerospace, medical, and die & mold. 

HDC Straight Shank super slim 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 the necessary clearance for use with deep workpiece access, making them an ideal solution for five axis tool holding requirements. 

The BIG KAISER HDC tool holders are simple to use; only one hex key wrench is needed to clamp or loosen the cutting tool, making tool changes fast and easy without the need for special equipment.  Every HDC tool holder is guaranteed to .00012” TIR at five times diameter. Optional straight collets can also be used to increase the range and versatility of each size.
