High Precision Face Grooving System

BIG KAISER has released insert holders for face grooving. The accessories are specifically designed to fit the BIG KAISER large diameter Series 318 and Series 319 SW twin-cutter boring heads for enhanced system flexibility.

The face grooving system can be used as either a single or twin cutter grooving tool for diameter ranges from o2.087" to o118". The design allows for a grooving depth up to .472", with a minimum width of .079" and a maximum of .375".

"Face grooving with boring tools is generally more efficient than milling with circular interpolation, especially when manufacturing grooves of large diameters," said a company spokesperson. "Also, whenever a surface for a sealing application is required, there is no other acceptable or accurate option than to use a face grooving set-up."

Using the boring tools as twin cutters, with a simultaneous adjustment in radius and length, allows the feedrate to be increased. Using the cutters in diameter offset operation enables a groove width of up to .472", 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.
