BIG Kaiser Introduces Premium ER Collet Chuck System



BIG Kaiser has introduced Mega ER Grip, a new premium ER collet chuck system featuring runout accuracy of .00012" (3 microns) at 4xD, according to the company.

"The Mega ER Grip was designed to perform in the four crucial areas of tool holder performance: clamping force, concentricity, rigidity and balance at high spindle speeds," said a company spokesperson. "These factors, combined with the systems runout accuracy, amount to long-term savings. A major design improvement increases the contact length of the internal taper of the chuck body, reducing the undesired overhang of the collet for performance increases."

"Our tests have shown that Mega ER Grip performs exceedingly well in these four areas," said Jack Burley, BIG Kaiser Vice President of Sales and Engineering. "The result is cost and down-time reduction thanks to longer tool life. Customers will also see improvements in machining quality and shorter production times because of reduced cutting vibrations."

"All components of the Mega ER Grip system are manufactured with BIG Daishowa's high-precision production technology; high rigidity body, precision notch-free nut and AA grade ERC collet," said a company spokesperson. "ERC collets are in accordance with DIN6499 and ISO15488 standards and feature a clamping range of .075-.787 inches. By utilizing the Mega ER Perfect Seal, coolant can be delivered through-tool or to the cutter periphery. Tapped holes around the body periphery permit precision balancing, and the system is only available with dual-contact BIG-PLUS (CAT40/50 & BBT30), HSK (A63/100) and BIG Coromant Capto (C4/5/6/8) interfaces."
