Big Kaiser will highlight its Smart Damper boring bar for lathe applications. A heavyweight, strengthened damping mechanism integrated into the toolholder functions as both a dynamic counter and friction damper. It instantaneously absorbs vibration and eliminates chatter, helping to achieve higher machining accuracy, better surface finishes and increased metal removal rates for higher productivity at critical machining depths. It’s also designed with the capability of supplying coolant through the body directly to the cutting edge.

The Smart Damper boring bar features three modular insert holders, optimized for right-hand ID turning with ISO standard inserts at a minimum diameter of 1.58” diameter. Metric bodies are available in 32 and 40 mm diameters, with inch versions at 1.250” and 1.500” diameters. With this system, boring at depths of approximately 7×D is well within reach.
