Hoffman Estates, IL - BIG Kaiser Precision Tooling Inc. will showcase a number of new and exciting products at Eastec 2010. Visit BIG Kaiser at booth #5244 to see what's new from BIG Daishowa, Kaiser, Sphinx, Speroni, Unilock and more.
BIG Kaiser's new CKN modular connection for large boring tools features a three-screw interface, providing high clamping forces for maximum torque transmission. The new system utilizes both steel and aluminum components to offer weight reductions up to 50%. This allows for better machine performance, easier handling and eliminates manual tool changes in many instances. New balancing accessories from BIG Kaiser achieve fine balancing quality on the 112 Series EWN precision boring heads. Balance Rings and Radial Adjustable Insert Holders allow compensation for imbalance in tool assemblies for the entire range of Ø.078-2.125". The Balance Rings work with standard boring bar components for diameters up to Ø.394", and are attached at the front end of the boring head. For diameters up to Ø2.125", the Radial Adjustable Insert Holders are designed to keep the boring head cartridge and boring bar close to the center position.
Also on display will be BIG Kaiser's newest holder for synchronous tapping, the Mega Synchro. The Mega Synchro tapping holder compensates for synchronization error during rigid tapping by reducing the thrust load to both the tap and work piece by up to 90 percent. While improving thread quality and tap life, the error compensation is facilitated through a unique mechanism which absorbs the pitch difference between the tap and synchronous spindle.
BIG Kaiser will showcase the newly expanded C-Cutter Mini chamfer mill line. Its compact design reduces the cutting diameter to the lowest limit, helping achieve ultra high spindle speeds and feeds. The C-Cutter Mini is now available with an offset body extension to achieve bolt hole and tap chamfers. The new design utilizes a single insert to achieve 45 degree top and bottom chamfers while the offset design avoids interference with the inside of the hole. Chamfer diameters range from .217" - .827" with tap sizes ranging from M8-M20 and bolt sizes ranging from M6 to M16. Multiple extension lengths are available to reach through holes as deep as 3.031".
Unilock Starter Kits, the newest workholding solution from BIG Kaiser and Stevens Engineering Inc. will also be on display. The Unilock starter kit allows users to plug the components immediately into their production cell when it supports a Stevens Engineering mounting grid pattern to instantly eliminate setup time while increasing productivity. Stevens Engineering's captured screw and captured dowel assemblies allow the kits to be installed in seconds. The kit also contains universal pallets that allow the user to quickly attach and detach their positioning and clamping components or workpieces.
Speroni's newest benchtop tool presetter, the MAGIS, will also be on display. The MAGIS is an ergonomically designed system that has the following standard features included: Integrated Calibration Master, Pneumatic Axis Locks, X and Z Axis Fine Adjust, CCD Camera, and Integral ISO 50 Taper Spindle with Pneumatic spindle brake. The MAGIS optimizes tool resources by reducing tool set-up time and improving machining production time, while also enhancing the production of quality components. The single-screen control (available with optional touch screen) is user-friendly allowing accurate tool measuring in minutes.
