BIG Kaiser to Display Variety of Newest Products at WESTEC in Booth #1035

Hoffman Estates, IL — BIG Kaiser Precision Tooling Inc. will have a variety of products from its family of tooling brands in booth #1035 at WESTEC, September 15-17 in Los Angeles. Visitors to the booth will find several of the newest products from BIG Kaiser’s family of brands, highlighted by solutions for workholding, tool holding, presetting and boring.


The newest ready-to-go finish boring kit from KAISER, based around the EWN 2-50XL head, provides everything to tool up for boring jobs in an extraordinary range of diameters, Ø.700”-6.000” with just one head. To make this new range possible with just one boring head instead of 2 as before, the engineers at KAISER came up with a new, rigid, dynamic center-mounted boring bar/insert holder capable of maintaining consistent precision throughout the full range of the center-mount option.

Tool Holding

BIG Daishowa’s two latest product innovations will be on hand; revolutions in anti-vibration and anti-pullout technology. The Smart Damper virtually eliminates vibration in deep-hole finish boring and extended-reach face milling. A unique mechanism functions as both counter and friction dampers, resulting in better surface finishes, faster metal removal rates and higher accuracy. Integral and modular solutions are available. Also on display will be the Mega Perfect Grip; a no-slip, anti-pullout milling chuck that combines the cutting performance of heavy-duty milling chucks with security against pullout of solid side lock tool holders.

Tool Presetters

A pair of presetter options will be on hand in L.A. The DIASET bench-top presetter is known for its sturdy construction and repeatable accuracy. The latest generation of this popular entry-level presetter includes some new amenities in high demand in modern shops like a camera and 8” LCD touch screen. This new combination enables angle, radius and length measurements. Plus, two built-in USB ports allow for simultaneous data saving and printer connection, reducing risk of human error.

The MAGIS is the only bench-top tool presetter in the world with built-in Retention Knob Clamping. This strong, repeatable seating in the spindle mimicking that of a machine tool is just one reason the MAGIS achieves unmatched accuracy and repeatability. Plus, a new full CNC spindle and X and Y axis controls allow for automated measuring cycles.


The two newest versions of BIG Kaiser’s best-selling round chuck workholding solution, the ESM 138 chuck can be seen at WESTEC. Both are direct swaps for the original chuck design. The new ESM 138 Turbo is built with a closed back, keeping the mechanisms clean and giving it turbo capability more than doubling the clamping force, up to roughly 3,520 lbs, by simply connecting an air source. This version also has slotted pin actuation for faster, stronger transfer of clamping force upon closing.

The other update, the ERGO 138, also features a closed back. The back cover has an air blast port which allows for cleaning of the knob and chuck before locking, ensuring firm and consistent positioning. Rectangular clamping pins are substituted for standard round pins for a knee-type lock and reduction of slippage. The body height of 28mm is 11mm shorter than the standard ESM 138, providing more workable area and the contact ring has been expanded to Ø80mm from Ø60mm for a larger contact surface area.
