Nikken Major Dream Holder

Nikken's Major Dream holder provides the optimum tool holder solution. The system is available to suit numerous tool shanks but when combined with Nikken's 2-lock (BT Double face contact) design the internal dampening mechanism comes into it's own and delivers excellent cutting performance (heavy-duty roughing through to super-fine finishing) and reduced tool wear.

Major Dream holders feature TiN Bearing Nut technology. TiN Bearing Nuts are more efficient and deliver better all-round performance than holders using conventional ball bearing nuts

  • Good sliding effect and reduced friction due to the TiN Bearing Nuts' surface hardness (HV2,200)
  • Reduced internal corrosion for long life and improved cutting performance
  • Better balance improves surface finish and run-out accuracy
  • Improved flange contact results in less vibration and therefore improved accuracy

Major Dream Holders deliver this optimum solution on any machine tool be it linear guideway or box guideway machining centres.
