 Press Releases

  • Hoffman Estates, IL – As part of a growing offering of turning solutions unveiled at IMTS, BIG KAISER announces the release of the Smart Damper boring bar for lathe applications.

    A heavyweight, strengthened damping mechanism integrated into the tool holder functions as both a dynamic counter and friction damper. It instantaneously absorbs vibration and eliminates chatter helping to achieve higher machining accuracy, better surface finishes and increased metal removal rates for higher productivity at critical machining depths. It’s also designed with the capability of supplying coolant through the body directly to the cutting edge.

    The Smart Damper boring bar features three modular insert holders, optimized for right-hand I.D. turning with ISO standard inserts at a minimum diameter of Ø1.58”. Metric bodies are available in Ø32 & 40mm, with inch versions at Ø1.250 & 1.500”. The general rule of thumb with this system is boring depths are possible at approximately 7xd.

    “Normally, when vibration occurs, cutting speeds need to be reduced. These cutting speeds affect efficiency, surface finish and tool life. The Smart Damper series has been so impactful for our customers, we made bringing this boring bar to market one of our top priorities as we expand our turning line," says Jack Burley, BIG KAISER vice president of sales and engineering.

    BIG KAISER is a worldwide leader in high-precision tooling systems and solutions for the metalcutting industry that guarantee extreme accuracy and repeatability.

  • Hoffman Estates, IL – At last year’s IMTS, BIG KAISER unveiled its first mobile app designed to support boring operations. Leveraging the precision of BIG KAISER tooling through remote real-time information access further improves productivity and control on the factory floor.

    BIG KAISER has developed a smartphone and tablet app to enhance the user-experience when assembling and running boring tools while providing extremely precise cutting data. This app will also help operators fine-tune the optimal cutting parameters for their tool assemblies. They can save their tool adjustment history in the app for future reference; this is an essential piece of the puzzle for shops joining the smart manufacturing movement.

    Fifty BIG KAISER boring heads, covering diameters from .016” up to 24.41”, are currently supported by this app. Cutting data for roughing and finishing tools is available in both inch and metric units.

    Using the app is child's play: Choose your tool, enter your application values, calculate your cutting data, input it into your control, make a measuring bore, adjust the tool, and bore away.

     “Today, machining is just as much about controlling processes as the actual tools themselves. Manufacturing needs accurate, real-time and mobile information management and this new app delivers just that,” says Chris Kaiser, CEO at BIG KAISER. “We are very excited by the app's crisp visual appearance, ease of use and the extremely precise cutting data that it will provide to our customers – everything at their fingertips for improved productivity and control.”

    The key benefit that this app brings the user is that machine and tool data, parameters and settings are always available and can be monitored remotely in real-time. Comprehensive information is displayed on a large legible screen, providing greater comfort than the existing on-machine interface. More precise information should lead to improved decision-making, thereby contributing to the bottom line.

    The app is available now for free download from the App Store and Google Play by searching “BIG KAISER Boring App”.

    As seen at IMTS, beta testing is underway for direct synchronization with the next generation of BIG KAISER digital boring heads, the EWD-EVO. Features will include visual display of head adjustments on the app for easier in-machine adjustments and saving of cutting data for specific heads and operations. These app features, along with the new digital heads, are expected to be available late 2017.

    For more information, contact BIG KAISER, Hoffman Estates, IL at 224-770-2999, e-mail bigkaiser@us.bigkaiser.com or visit www.us.bigkaiser.com.

  • BIG KAISER will be introducing the new EWE digital boring heads with wireless connectivity to the BIG KAISER app. With this connectivity, operators will be able to effortlessly make diameter corrections to boring tools while at the machine spindle. Once application info has been input and saved in the App, the finish boring correction process becomes faster, more reliable, and traceable.

  • HMCJ Milling Chuck
    BIG KAISER has launched the HMCJ, a super-slim milling chuck with peripheral coolant supply, designed to support heavy-duty and finish end milling tasks with power and precision using Ø1/2” or Ø12mm cutters...

  • The newest, slimmer member of the Hi-Power Milling Chuck (HMC) family features a clamping bore with fine slots surrounded by hundreds of needle bearings, which ensures concentric, precise and smooth clamping when the nut is tightened. The HMCJ applies the highest gripping force to the cutting tool shank of any comparable milling chuck in its class, and five to six times greater compared to collet chucks.

    The slim yet rigid design of this new chuck brings the nut diameter down to an impressive 1.260” (32mm), the smallest in its class. This was achieved while maintaining an uncompromising and substantial cross section of .394” (10mm) to prevent chatter and deliver cutting security. The max jet-through coolant pressure is 70 bar.

    Despite being designed for heavy cutting, the HMCJ milling chuck is able to maintain a runout accuracy of ten microns at 4xD, giving it additional flexibility for use on finishing applications. For additional rigidity and accuracy, dual contact interface are standard. A Ø32mm straight shank design is also available.

    It is also possible to use smaller diameter milling tools through the use of PJC Reduction Collets for Ø3/8” & Ø1/4” and Ø10, Ø8 & Ø6mm.
