It’s been a huge undertaking, and we’re pleased to release BIG KAISER’s latest catalog—High Performance Tooling Solutions, 2018-2019. You may notice that this edition looks a bit different than in the past.
After a successful promotion last year, BIG KAISER renewed its commitment to the National Robotics League (NRL) at the recent National Tooling & Machining Association (NTMA) Fall Conference in San Antonio.
It all began with “Scuffgate,” a small chamfered edge that became a critical priority and evolved into a growing demand for fine finishes and feel in a world of myriad applications that only precision chamfering can deliver.
In a move to expand BIG KAISER’s existing carbide cutting tool lineup of pilot/spotting drills, high-performance drills, deep-hole drills, drill reamers and micro end mills, BIG KAISER looked to one of its global partners to introduce new micro engraving cutters.
Sure, there are 15 new geometries—including flat-tip and radius micro engraving mills, TC2 high-performance drills from 3xD to 30xD and pilot/step drills—but, Volume 2 of the Sphinx High Precision Cutting Tools catalog is much more than product listings.
Manufacturing miniature parts and features is not new. In the past, EDM and laser technologies were used to create these features. Although these technologies worked for low volume jobs, they are not practical for the high volume micro applications that are in demand today.
