BIG KAISER Expands Smart Damper Lineup with the Addition of EWN & EWD Smart Damper Boring Heads
BIG KAISER introduces the EWN & EWD Smart Damper - precision boring heads with a patented damping system to eliminate vibration in deep-hole finish boring.
The integral design of these new heads shortens the distance from the damping mechanism to the cutting edge, which is the source of vibration. This produces higher damping effects to the tool assembly to minimize the chatter or vibration – thus achieving better surface finishes and improved metal removal rates.
