BIG Kaiser expands EWE digital boring head range For any manufacturers involved in imperial boring operations, Tamworth-based Industrial Tooling Corporation (ITC) is expanding the BIG Kaiser EWE digital boring heads range by offering head sizes down to the CKB1 modular tooling connection size, which allows users to bore down to 0.787in diameter for Series 310 peripheric heads and 0.016in diameter using the Series 112 centric boring heads.

Already widely available in metric configurations, the new heads will feature the same boring ranges and accept the same accessory products as their standard analogue counterparts which ensures an easy transition to digital tooling for all boring applications.

Due to the small sizes of these boring heads, the digital display will no longer be present on the head itself, rather the adjustment value will be shown on a separate mobile device or tablet that has the BIG Kaiser app installed – once connected to the head, the app can be used to set the target diameter and tolerance.

This information will stay assigned to the specific head that is connected until it is changed by the operator. Along with the last measured cut information, the app can show the adjustment required to get the headset to the target diameter.

An optional handheld device that simply displays the incremental adjustment value is also available. This is useful for machine shops that may not permit personal mobile device use on the shopfloor. The unit only has four push buttons for ease-of-use and a battery level indicator.
