Tool Holder Systems for All Applications

The catalog’s Collet Chuck Program Overview section compares all BIG collet chucks in range, taper type and size, plus nut diameter. This allows users to easily narrow down all of their options to the system and series best suited for their specific application. 
This comprehensive 296-page catalog of BIG Daishowa high-precision tool holder systems from BIG Kaiser is a single source for all tool holder needs and is organized by spindle interface for easy browsing and effortless navigation.

Tooling Adapters for Mold & Die Machining

SFS12 adapters are available for 1/8 in up to ½ in tool shanks, and shanks of 3 mm to 12 mm. They fit CAT40/50, BT30/40, and HSK40E holders and are made from H13 tool steel for compatibility with fast induction heat shrink machines. 
The SFS12 Modular ShrinkFIT System from Techniks delivers excellent accuracy and clearance at extended lengths for mold and die applications.

Adjustable Angle Heads for Machining Tricky Angles

A worm gear on the back side of the angle head makes adjustments faster and easier, which reduces down time and retooling time that would otherwise slow down efficiency and productivity.
Available in small to large custom sizes, adjustable angle heads from Benz Inc. are engineered for use in general manufacturing and light production operations where the machines need to change angles frequently.

Hole Puncher with Power Reverse Punch Increases Productivity

The electro-hydraulic Hougen-Ogura model 75006PR provides 26.9 tons of punching pressure to punch round holes up to 15/16 in (23.8 mm) diameter and oblong holes up to 11/16 in x 13/16 in (18 mm x 21 mm) in flat bar, H-steel, angle iron and channel material up to 1/2 in (12.7 mm) thick.
The new Hougen-Ogura model 75006PR from Hougen Manufacturing punches holes in steel in 4 seconds and can power reverse the punch back out of hole if needed in harder, more elastic materials that tend to grip the punch after the hole is produced.

Bandsaws for High Accuracy Pipe Cutting

Model H series bandsaws from W.F. Wells use variable vise pressure to apply the exact allowable force needed to hold the part adequately without distortion. Full machine capacity top clamps provide vibration dampening through 4-point clamping that is required with bundles or non-distorting material clamping. 
The guide mounted cutting force in Model H series semi-automatic twin column bandsaws from W.F.Wells allows the finest possible adjustment for fast and accurate cuts in tough, solid material cutting applications.
