What to Expect from BIG KAISER at IMTS
With just a few weeks until IMTS, the largest manufacturing show in North America, we wanted to share more details on the newest tooling technology BIG KAISER will have on display. The show takes place September 10-15 at McCormick Place in Chicago, and you can find BIG KAISER in booth #431610.
A big focus throughout the show is Industry 4.0. We have been working extensively on digital tooling, specifically the evolution of our EWA and EWE finish boring heads. The EWA system features closed-loop, automatic adjustment of diameter by receiving commands wirelessly from the machine control or after the gaging process and a bore diameter correction is required. EWA boring heads are capable of self-adjusting to micron precision and have a large work range so that one tool can perform multiple sizes of bores.
EWE fine boring heads also feature a digital display to show incremental movement of the cutting edge. They use Bluetooth technology to wirelessly connect to the BIG KAISER app. When used together, application information is combined with data from the boring head to show the expected output from the tool and guide operators to make a diameter correction based on the tolerance and the last measured bore produced by the tool. Color-coded dimensions give operators a visual cue when the tool is back in tolerance and ready to continue production, decreasing the risk of adjustment errors. The range of EWE boring heads has been expanded to include ultra-small diameter boring heads, completing the system for all sizes of tools.
Here are other products we are excited for booth attendees to see:
- SPERONI ESSENTIA
- Level Master Wireless
- Super Slim Hydraulic Tool Holders
- Straight Shank Type Hydraulic Tool Holders
- Torque Fit
