BIG Kaiser’s large-diameter Kaiser 318 series complete tooling system supports a variety of aluminum and steel components optimized for twin cutter rough boring, precision finish boring and precision OD turning operations. Standard boring diameters range from 7.87" to 13.39" for ISO40/HSK-A63 tapers and from 7.87" to 24.41" for ISO50/HSK-A100 and larger tapers. Using special components, the system can extend to 118" in diameter. The mounting flanges feature the company’s CKN modular connection with a three-screw interface, developed for high-torque transmission with lightweight tools.
Secure, “pinned to fit,” lightweight aluminum mounting components enable spindle speeds ranging to 6,600 sfm. The high-strength aluminum components are hard-coated to protect against wear and corrosion, and all assemblies deliver high-pressure, through-tool coolant.
The series features aluminum extension slides to adjust diameter and length settings without a tool presetter. According to the company, the system’s simplicity prevents operator error during assembly and promotes safety during operation.
