Hoffman Estates, IL – BIG Kaiser Precision Tooling Inc. has expanded its product line while staying true to its mission of bringing the highest quality, most precise, most reliable and most accurate tooling and accessory products to market. Products showcased in BIG Kaiser's 2013 EASTEC portfolio carry the same genes as their established predecessors, designed to ensure productivity through precision, repeatability and speed. Stop by the booth to view the suite of new products, including a brand new Speroni Futura presetter.
The entire KAISER EWD Series of digital boring heads will be displayed—including the brand new 310 medium diameter and 318 large diameter programs, which compliment the most popular 112 digital program. For the entire EWD program, the robust measurement system shows precise linear movement of the tool carrier in both directions on a built-in digital display offering adjustments of .00005" or .001mm. To make integration easy, the entire EWD Series uses existing accessories such as insert holders, shanks, extensions, etc., from the existing KAISER program, and the heads are virtually identical dimensionally—so little or no reprogramming is necessary. An IP 69K seal rating (highest possible) assures resistance to contamination, and all heads are coolant-through.
BIG Daishowa’s newest solution in extended reach arbor technology, the Smart Damper (Pat. P), features a unique dynamic damping system that eliminates vibration and instantaneously reduces chatter for higher productivity in deep hole finish boring and extended reach face milling. Also on display will be the new Hydraulic Chuck Super Slim line of tool holders—an expansion of the high performance Hydraulic Chuck line. The slender body eliminates interference in confined areas—ideal for 5-axis precision machining. The Mega Synchro Tapping Holder for rigid tapping has also expanded to include solutions for micro taps and large taps.
Also new from BIG Daishowa are three new high performance indexable cutters. The R-Cutter is an ultra high feed front and back radius chamfering mill which features high rake angles that reduce cutting resistance and minimize burr generation. The insert design allows for four indexes, and is available with radii of .02"-.16". The BF-Cutter is a back spot facing tool for cap bolt holes M6-M16. It utilizes the world’s smallest indexable square insert, and is coolant through to securely cool down the backside cutting area. The Speed Finisher is a new high speed face mill for aluminum and cast iron which offers mirror-like surface finishes. Each insert cutting edge is height adjustable to within 1 micron of each other.
Two new tool presetter solutions will be making their east coast debut – a new and improved entry-level Diaset contact presetter, and the free standing CNC Speroni Futura. The Futura is Speroni’s finest model yet, taking its sleek and modern look from the smaller Magis model, and its robustness and repeatability from the previous Esperia line, and mixing it all together with a magnitude of improvements in software, convenience and ergonomics. The Diaset bench-top presetter, by Innotool Austria, underwent a major design overhaul, including new mineral cast construction, an "easy-run" system for fast axis movement, a more robust spindle and a brand new digital control readout.
Also new from Innotool is ROC® Mineral Cast tombstone workholding technology, which features excellent attenuation attributes. The mineral casts’ low thermal conductivity means low reactivity to temperature changes, and the low weight is even lighter than aluminum. The casts are chemically and mechanically resistant to aggressive and abrasive media, and are corrosion resistant. ROC Mineral Cast will be shown equipped with the Innotool’s Unilock zero-point clamping system integrated on its faces, representing a complete quick-change workholding solution. Other new Unilock solutions will be the Duo Bridge and Riser Chucks—two new 5-axis solutions based on a zero-point quick-change platform.
Finally, building on the success of Phoenix high performance drill, Sphinx has introduced the new Power-Phoenix extra long high performance drill series for deep hole applications. Power-Phoenix drills feature a four-margin geometry (above 2mm) for stability, ensuring a straight hole in deep drilling applications. A unique point grind ensures consistent chip formation, while specially designed polished flutes allow for rapid chip evacuation. Also shown will be the Sphinx Micro Tricut Drill in sizes down to ø.20mm. The three-fluted feature serves two purposes: the additional flute provides an achievable hole tolerance of H7 and a fine surface finish, and starts to approximate the performance you would realize from a separate reamer operation– all in one pass.
