Use MEGA Chucks to Increase Your Tool Life

Runout greatly influences part quality and tool life. At the “acceptable average” runout of 0.01 mm, tool life is cut in half. As cutting tool diameters get smaller, the acceptable amount of runout must decrease substantially. Tool life in most applications can increase over 200% when the BIG KAISER MEGA Chuck system is utilized due to our highly accurate, low runout New Baby Collets.
