BIG KAISER, a global leader in premium high-precision tooling systems and solutions for the metal-working industries, has announced the SW Smart Damper – a rough boring head with a built-in anti-vibration mechanism.
The new twin-cutter head for rough boring makes it easy to create deep bores in iron or steel quickly, quietly and without vibration or chatter. This means that faster machining and higher productivity are possible than ever before, thus saving the customer money.
The SW Smart Damper can operate at cutting speeds of up to 200 m/min in steel at a length of 8xD (ratio tool length / diameter) without chattering. This is four times faster than the 50 m/min maximum chatterless cutting speed attainable without the SW Smart Damper.
BIG KAISER has achieved this breakthrough thanks to a patented construction design, consisting of a metal body with special rubber dampers inside, and importantly with no oil required. If the bar vibrates, the metal weights, or friction dampers, compensate for these vibrations by adjusting their position, with every component free to move independently.
Moreover, the SW Smart Damper can perform two roughing operations without needing to change any components. One is for high speed operations (inserts are of the same diameter and length) and the other is utilized for high stock removal tasks (inserts are assembled with a diameter and height offsets). This is made possible by the tool body providing perfectly stable supports for insert holders of varying heights and lengths.
“Our innovated and patented oil-free SW Smart Damper brings unparalleled production speeds to the world of vibration-free boring,” says Peter Elmer, CEO at BIG KAISER. “This new addition to our already comprehensive family of boring tools will allow our customers to do more in less time, hence increase their production and save money.”
Together with this new SW Smart Damper, BIG KAISER also offers a wide range of smart damper products, each featuring an integrated damping system to eliminate chattering. This includes a precision EWD boring head with a digital display, and a whole range of tools for turning, boring and milling tasks.
