Smart Damper Tool for Milling
Integrated Damping System
BIG DAISHOWA’s Smart Damper tool for milling incorporates a passive damping mechanism close to the cutting edge that functions as a counteraction by way of high resonance friction action. The patent-pending system’s damping capability minimizes the effects of high-frequency oscillations, absorbing vibration effectively and allowing higher machining accuracy.
When it comes to vibration and tooling the buzzword you’ll often hear is “overhang,” or length-to-diameter ratio. That’s because as the overhang grows, it becomes the most fragile element in the machining process and increases the chance of bad vibration. This is an especially common issue for die and mold, aerospace, automobile, and oil and gas manufacturers.
Knowing that it’s also critical to have the damping elements as close to the cut as possible, most of our Smart Damper offerings are modular in design, allowing for an array of standard shanks to be adapted to create “custom” tools to extend over 16 inches, maintaining damping nearer the cutting tool and managing vibration in long-overhang setups.
