Big Kaiser has introduced two versions of the C-Centering Cutter, a multi-function cutter capable of spot drilling, centering and chamfering. It is an indexable cutter that uses a specialized insert that can start a hole from a solid piece. It can also perform spot drilling and 90-degree chamfering at the same time, or it can be used strictly for hole chamfering.

During spot drilling, the insert-nose radius can be easily chipped with general cutters since the center has a peripheral speed of zero. But the coolant hole in the C-Centering Cutter enables cooling of the cutting edge, which reaches high temperatures during spot drilling and enables immediate chip evacuation. This prevents chipping during spot drilling.

 

The latest version of the C-Centering Cutter is a three-insert cutter, which is only used for chamfering. This version is perfect for general chamfering and results in a reduction of cycle time over using the single-insert version.

  • Drill And Bore With A Face Mill

    Cutting holes by interpolating a face milling cutter may be a better process choice for many rough and even finish boring operations. Software improvements and better cutter designs allow expanding use of the versatile face mill for hole making.

  • Machining Dry Is Worth A Try

    Reducing cutting fluid use offers the chance for considerable cost savings. Tool life may even improve.

  • Rolling Threads Has Advantages

    With macros and canned cycles resident in the CNC on most contemporary turning centers, single point turning of OD threads can seem like almost a default process decision. However, for numerous applications, OD thread rolling has inherent advantages as an alternative to cutting threads.
