BIG KAISER Precision Tooling Celebrates 70-Year Anniversary

The precision tooling company founded by Heinz Kaiser in Rümlang, Switzerland, is celebrating its 70th anniversary.

In 1948, the 25-year-old Heinz Kaiser gave up his job and started his own business near Zurich, Switzerland. His vision was to advance the development of high-quality tools needed to keep pace with the increasing productivity of machine tool technology at that time.

Heinz Kaiser had clear goals in mind: modern tools, manufactured in his own workshop, meeting high requirements. That meant designing tools which were strong, well-balanced and capable of boring precise holes with high accuracy and surface quality. Over time, this commitment to ongoing research and development was enriched by decades of experience in the design, manufacture and application of efficient cutting solutions. The result was a complete range of CKB (KAB) tool and clamping systems for boring, milling, drilling, and external turning which are still widely used in industries around the world today.

Now a member of the BIG Daishowa Group of companies, BIG KAISER Precision Tooling continues to have an integral role in the company’s worldwide R & D and manufacturing strategy. The next generation of products developed in Switzerland delivers connectivity essential to today’s smart manufacturing environments.

It has been 70 years since Heinz Kaiser started his success story with strong will, much faith and a little bit of luck. Many things have changed in the world of manufacturing and technology, but the quality standards of BIG KAISER Precision Tooling are unchanged. We want to thank our customers, friends and supporters for these 70 years.
