Aluminum Tooling System

A series of ultra lightweight automatic balanced precision boring heads for diameters ranging from 3.937" to 8.000" has been introduced by BIG Kaiser Precision Tooling, Inc. (Elk Grove Village, IL). The EWB-AL aluminum tooling system, requiring only two different heads to cover the entire diameter range, is designed for cutting speeds up to 6,600 sfm.

A series of ultra lightweight automatic balanced precision boring heads for diameters ranging from 3.937" to 8.000" has been introduced by BIG Kaiser Precision Tooling, Inc. (Elk Grove Village, IL). The EWB-AL aluminum tooling system, requiring only two different heads to cover the entire diameter range, is designed for cutting speeds up to 6,600 sfm. The system offers simultaneous clamping of adjusting cartridge and counterweight. The heads are made of high tensile aluminum with hard coating, resulting in a tool weight one-third that of steel, and are equipped with a highly accurate self-balancing mechanism. EWB heads are designed for precision boring on modern CNC machining centers, allowing users to perform forward and back boring operations without the need for additional components. They feature micrometric adjustment precision, with dials graduated in increments of .0005 inches. The dial’s design allows for precision adjustments to be made at the machine.
