World's first hydraulic chuck for 3mm diameter tools from ITC

Added to MTDCNC by ITC LTD on 23 May 2015
Now available from Industrial Tooling Corporation (ITC) is the new HDC super slim hydraulic chuck for clamping tool diameters down to 3mm. Just launched by KAISER Precision Tooling and available in the UK from ITC, the HDC super slim is claimed to be the world's first hydraulic chuck for clamping tool diameters as small as 3mm without a reduction sleeve.
 
The new chucks can directly clamp ultra small end mills and drills without a reduction sleeve, making it ideal for use in demanding finishing operations in confined areas. For clamping diameters of 3mm, the external diameter of the chuck nose is only 14mm and at a length of 90mm, the diameter is 25 mm. This now means that interference contours should no longer be a problem for machine shops. 
 
Thanks to the hydraulic clamping system with dual oil pressure points, the hydraulic chucks provide highly accurate, repeatable clamping with less than 1.5microns variance. Furthermore, the chucks have a run-out accuracy of less than 3microns at 4XD. This outstanding precision can be combined with rotation speeds up to 35,000rpm to help to improve the surface finish of workpieces as well as extending tool life. In addition, the HDC super slim is available for HSK-E 32/40/63 and BBT 30/40/50 machine spindles.
 
The new KAISER chucks from ITC are easy to use and permit rapid tool changes with only one wrench required for clamping and unclamping. The KAISER hydraulic chuck range includes clamping diameters from 3mm to 12mm as well as various projection lengths to fit nearly any application in automotive, aerospace, medical, and die and mould. This diverse range is all available from ITC
