Big Kaiser Precision Tooling has updated its Chip Blowers offering, which are designed to make removing chips and coolant from parts and machine tables fast, easy and safe. The new Chip Blower has an extended steel shank, from 1.77" to 2.5", for added compatibility with hydraulic and milling chucks.
The Chip Blower automates in-machine cleaning of coolant and chips by delivering high-volume air flow with spindle rotation. When not in use, the Chip Blower fits easily into any automatic tool change system for vertical, horizontal or multi-tasking machining centers. Big Kaiser says the Chip Blower can be used with automatic tool changers and programmed into a machining cycle, helping to improve machine utilization and increase productivity. The Chip Blower complements the solid construction, fixed blade ChipFan.
The Chip Blower is available with three blade length options and has center-through coolant capability for high-pressure washing.
