Hoffman Estates, IL – Complete with a built-in digital display, BIG Kaiser's new Series 112 EWD 2-54 Digital Precision Finish Boring Head allows operators to make precision adjustments on the fly. The digital unit utilizes accessories from the Kaiser EWN 2-50XL series and features through-tool coolant supply and a maximum spindle speed of 20,000 RPM.
The head, with a Kaiser KA6 modular connection, features absolute setting accuracy. An on-board electronic measurement system in the tool carrier allows for ultra-precise diameter adjustments for the boring range Ø.079" to 2.126". For ease of use, a single button is all that is needed to operate the digital readout.
The large, high-contrast display relates diameter corrections with a resolution of .00005"/Ø, or .001mm/Ø on metric heads. The tool carrier's measuring system shows the effective movement of the cutting edge and permits diameter corrections in both directions.
"By making the readout easy to read, adjust, and use, the Series 112 EWD 2-54 Digital Precision Boring Head will ensure accuracy while eliminating operating errors¬-saving time and labor," says Jack Burley, BIG Kaiser vice president of sales and engineering.
The boring head's digital features include a power management system for optimum battery life and an automatic switch-off function which automatically saves the most recently displayed value. The coated tool body offers complete protection against corrosion, and a seal rating of IP 69K – the highest rating possible – assures the internal components are protected in the most extreme environments.
