KAISER launches high precision face grooving system, ideal for automotive industry

KAISER Precision Tooling, a leader in premium high-precision tooling systems and solutions for the automotive, mil/aero, energy, medical and watch-making industries, recently announced new insert holders for face grooving. The new parts are specifically designed to fit KAISER’s series 318 and SW twin-cutter boring heads, giving more flexibility to existing KAISER clients to upgrade their equipment.

Face grooving with boring tools is generally more efficient than milling with circular interpolation, especially when manufacturing bores with large diameters. Also, whenever a surface for sealing application is required, there is no other option except using boring tools with face grooving accessories.

The new face grooving system can be used as either a single or twin cutter grooving tool for diameter ranges from 53mm to 3000mm, with a grooving depth up to 12mm and width up to 9.5mm (5mm with a single cutter).

Using the boring tools as twin cutters, with a simultaneous adjustment in radius and length, allows the feed rate to be increased. Using the cutters in diameter offset operation enables a groove width of up to 9.5mm, and both inside and outside diameters can be adjusted separately within the smallest tolerances. Both cutting edges can be adjusted easily to the same length, due to an eccentric bolt mechanism with clear direction indication.

“KAISER products give our customers an unparalleled combination of quality, precision and ruggedness,” says Peter Elmer, CEO of KAISER Precision Tooling. “These new face grooving holders uphold that tradition, while adding additional options to the applications possible with our series 318 and SW boring heads.”

The new parts are aimed at a broad range of applications across mechanical engineering, aerospace, energy and automotive. KAISER also offers the devices in customized solutions.

The insert holders are available now.
