BIG KAISER, Hoffman Estates, Ill. has expanded its lineup of Smart Damper-equipped, arbor-style face mill holders. This new holder is the largest and longest milling tool BIG KAISER has offered. It supports face mills with diameters of approximately 3 inches and 4 inches, with an arbor pilot diameter of 1 inch.
The Model SDF57 assembly has an outside diameter of 2.83 inches and allows users of 3-inch face mills to access up to 19.68 inches of reach, which, according to the company, is the longest tool assembly in the industry using standard components. Face milling components used in construction equipment, aerospace and oil/gas industries will see the most opportunity for this new tool holder with vibration dampening, where long reaches are common.
Smart Damper enables quiet, vibration-free milling, even in long-projection assemblies. The integral design of Smart Damper shortens the distance from the damping mechanism to the cutting edge. This produces higher damping effects to the tool assembly, minimizing chatter or vibration for better surface finishes and improved metal removal rates.
The new Smart Damper face mill holder is available for BBT50, BCV50 and HSK-A100 shank styles.
