We’ve seen and heard it all when it comes to boring holes. That said, there are always a few questions that pop up over and over. From optimizing modular boring assemblies to deciding between twin boring or high-feed milling, here’s some of BIG KAISER’s best boring advice.
Boring tool performance depends greatly on the Length-to-Diameter (L:D) Ratio of the application. While this is a straightforward calculation, the Length and Diameter values to be used may not be that clear.
When it comes to boring, there are several factors that can lead to poor performance. Whether it’s long cycle times, short tool life or poor bore quality, any or all these factors may need to be addressed in order to increase productivity. Although different, these issues are often closely linked in a given application.
BIG KAISER will highlight digital tooling innovations, as well as cutting-edge products and accessories at IMTS in booth #431610. IMTS, held September 10-15 at McCormick Place in Chicago, is North America’s largest manufacturing show.
John Saunders, a machinist and shop owner known for running the most popular YouTube channel on CNC machining, used his platform to speak about BIG KAISER’s Digital Boring Head, a tool that is known for machining thousands of holes with absolute precision.
