Big Kaiser Expands Range of Hydraulic Expansion Chucks

Rümlang ZH – Big Kaiser has introduced a new clamping system for use on NC lathes. The Lathe type B hydraulic chuck adds a product with high repeat accuracy to the range of clamping devices.

Big Kaiser, a global manufacturer of precision tools, has presented the new Lathe type B hydraulic chuck, according to a press release. It extends the existing type F and R clamping devices and was specially developed for the requirements of NC lathes (numerical control machines). Bis Kaiser is thus strengthening its commitment to quality and innovation in the metalworking industry.

The new product is optimized for the Star Micronics machine type. The precision chuck guarantees an exceptional repeat accuracy of less than one micrometer. Thanks to its rectangular design, it can accommodate several rows of tools. This minimizes interference and increases machining options where space is at a premium, making them ideal clamping devices for this compact machine type.

Type B hydraulic chucks from Big Kaiser are said to run on well-known NC machine manufacturers such as Citizen, Star, Tsugami and Tornos. "They enable tools to be changed safely and quickly with a simple hexagon key, which significantly improves efficiency and safety during operation," they say.

"Each of our chucks is subject to two intensive manual quality checks in order to guarantee our high quality standards," Giampaolo Roccatello, Chief Sales & Marketing Officer for Europe, is quoted as saying. ce/heg
