BIG KAISER Breakfast & Learn Event May 8-10

BIG KAISER, a provider of high-precision tooling systems and solutions, will host its 6th annual Breakfast & Learn event on May 8-10, 2018.

BIG KAISER's facility is located in Hoffman Estates, IL, right next to DMG MORI, which will be hosting its Chicago Innovation Days event on the same days. Before Innovation Days starts, attendees are invited to join BIG KAISER at 7:30 AM each morning to enjoy a complimentary breakfast followed by technical sessions on important topics and new trends in the industry.

Below is an overview of the technical presentations, which start at 8:30 AM each day:

  • Tuesday, May 8th: "Higher Productivity Milling-Advanced Cutter and Tool Holding Technology" presented by Cory Cetkovic, Applications Engineer & Product Manager-Sphinx.

High performance milling centers are purchased with the intention of increasing throughput and workpiece quality. To achieve this goal, many of the traditional methods and tooling must be changed, especially when working with hard metals and/or high-speed cutting. Cetkovic will outline the current advantages and disadvantages of each type of toolholder and offer suggestions for applying each technology for optimum output and quality.

  • Wednesday, May 9th: "Digitally Connected Tooling Systems" presented by Matt Tegelman, Applications Manager & Product Manager-Modular Systems.

Digitally connected tools offer several advantages to machining processes. From permitting better assurance of correct sizing adjustments, to providing historical data of past adjustments and displaying real-time data on cutting conditions. Discover how these tools will assist in giving a real-time assessment of productivity, and permit better decision making for future planning.

  • Thursday, May 10th: "5-Axis Workholding" presented by John Zaya, Applications Engineer & Product Manager-Workholding.

Five-sided machining requires workholding products that offer maximum versatility and functionality, while providing interference-free spindle-to-workpiece access. Programmers, fixture designers and manufacturing engineers with limited exposure to 5-axis machining will find helpful tips and understanding of workholding systems available to maximize and simplify machine set-up.

Visitors will also have the chance to tour BIG KAISER's showroom that is equipped with tool presetters, extensive tooling displays and zero-point workholding solutions. Doors will be open all day long for visitors to stop by and talk to engineers about tooling solutions and needs.
