ITC ‘masters’ turning with new BIG Kaiser line-up

ITC ‘masters’ turning with new BIG Kaiser line-upBIG Kaiser, a global leader in premium high-precision tooling systems and solutions, has expanded its range of turning tools with multiple new toolholder dimensions and extensive new lines of indexable inserts which are available in the UK from Tamworth-based Industrial Tooling Corporation (ITC).

In response to customer feedback, BIG Kaiser has added new C4 and C8 size extensions, a Type F turning tool holder and a range of indexable turning tool inserts. The expansion of the high-precision rotating tool product portfolio means that UK manufacturers can now obtain a wide range of toolholding solutions from ITC.

BIG Kaiser has developed the new 'Lathe Master' (pictured) for straightforward cutting-edge position set-up, eliminating the need for trial cutting. This innovation noticeably reduces set-up times on NC (Numerical Control) lathes.

With an LED light that indicates when the tip of the tool touches the sensor plate of the Lathe Master, the new system provides convenient visual guidance for the machine operator.

The Lathe Master can be used for external, internal and face turning applications. Available in both 15mm diameter and 30mm diameter configurations, the new 'Lathe Master' exhibits a repeatability level of ±2µm.

Another addition to the BIG Kaiser product line is the new Weldon adapter; a surface-mounted chuck that is now offered in size C8.

Meanwhile, the tooling manufacturer has also expanded its family of BIG Capto tool holders with a new C4 size being added to the range. This C4 size is becoming increasingly popular as a quick-change tooling system for lathes and turning centres with a turret tooling configuration. The BIG Capto C4 is now offered for both rotating tool holders and turning tools for lathes.

The new arrival complements the BIG Kaiser Mega chuck rotating tool program that is already available to ITC customers in the UK.

Marco Siragna, BIG Kaiser head of product management, said: ”BIG Kaiser is a leader in high-precision tooling and these new turning tool additions provide customers with a 'one stop shop' for perfectly compatible components enabling more applications, better results and significantly higher efficiency.”
