Boring Tools Cutting Data Tables

Cutting Data App / Insert Development

A Cutting Data App for Smart Phones and Tablets

BIG KAISER has developed a smartphone and tablet app to enhance the user-experience when assembling and running cutting tools while providing extremely precise cutting data. This app will 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. 61 BIG KAISER boring heads, covering diameters from Ø.01575" (Ø 0.4 mm) up to Ø24.41" (Ø 620 mm), are currently supported by this app. Cutting data for rough and fine boring tools is available in both metric and imperial units. 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.

Insert Development

The customer shall reach the best possible results in terms of performance, precision and cost efficiency for all boring operations with BIG KAISER twin cutter and precision boring tools. Therefore, not only outstanding boring tools are required, but also inserts, specially designed for boring, which fulfil the highest demands. BIG KAISER invests continuously in development and tests of new inserts. New geometries will be defined, coatings tested and different substrates evaluated, often also in co-operation with carbide- and coolant manufacturers.

Indexable inserts for perfect chip control, maximum tool life and minimized costs

The results of the developments and tests are shown in the BIG KAISER cutting data table. In their, you’ll find the most suitable inserts for the vari- ety of workpiece materials and machining processes in relation to the tool configuration. The table shows precise cutting data for all applications.
