BIG KAISER Announces Addition of Micro Engraving Tools to Sphinx Line

Hoffman Estates, IL – BIG KAISER introduces a series of new micro engraving cutters developed and built by their partner Sphinx (Derendingen, Switzerland). Building on Sphinx’s micro tooling expertise, including its renowned line of micro drills, the solid carbide engraving cutters’ sharp, positive cutting geometry promotes burr-free surface finishes and smooth transitions.

The engravers come standard with a Ø3mm shank and are available in a variety of angles (30°/40°/50°/60°/90°) and in two possible point geometries—flat or radius tipped. The radius cutters range from .0016"-.0039" (.04mm-.10mm), and the flats range from .0008”-.0059” (.02mm-.15mm).

The micro engraver are appropriate for work in most materials ranging from alloyed and unalloyed steels to thermosetting plastics, and even titanium. They are an excellent addition to BIG KAISER’s existing micro cutting tool lineup of pilot/spotting, high performance, drill reamers, deep-hole and end mills from Sphinx.
