Handy for imprinting part numbers, logos and brand names on finished parts, Big Kaiser has introduced a series of new micro engraving cutters developed and built by the company’s partner, Sphinx, of Switzerland. Building on Sphinx’s micro tooling expertise—including its line of micro drills—the solid carbide engraving cutters’ sharp, positive cutting geometry promotes burr-free surface finishes and smooth transitions, according to the company.

The engravers come standard with a 3-mm diameter shank and are available in a variety of angles (30, 40, 50, 60, 90 degrees) and in two possible point geometries: flat or radius tipped. The radius cutters range from 0.0016 to 0.0039 inch (0.04 mm to 0.10 mm), and the flats range from 0.0008 to 0.0059 inch (0.02 mm to 0.15 mm).

The micro engravers are appropriate for work in most materials ranging from alloyed and unalloyed steels to thermosetting plastics and even titanium. They bolster Big Kaiser’s existing micro cutting tool lineup of pilot/spotting, drill reamers, deep-hole and end mills from Sphinx.
