BIG KAISER boring head with built-in smart damper for fast, vibration-free operation
Oil-free damping improves precision, speeds up manufacturing and reduces costs
Ruemlang, Switzerland – October 25, 2016 – BIG KAISER, a global leader in premium high-precision tooling systems and solutions for the metal-working industries, has today announced the SW Smart Damper - a rough boring head with a built-in anti-vibration mechanism.
The new twin-cutter head for rough boring makes it easy to create deep bores in iron or steel quickly, quietly and without vibration or chatter. This means that faster machining and higher productivity are possible than ever before, thus saving the customer money.
The SW Smart Damper can operate at cutting speeds of up to 200 m/min in steel at a length of 8xD (ratio tool length / diameter) without chattering. This is four times faster than the 50 m/min maximum chatterless cutting speed attainable without the SW Smart Damper.
BIG KAISER has achieved this breakthrough thanks to a patented construction design, consisting of a metal body with special rubber dampers inside, and importantly with no oil required. If the bar vibrates, the metal weights, or friction dampers, compensate for these vibrations by adjusting their position, with every component free to move independently.
