Big Kaiser’s insert holders for face grooving include new accessories that are specifically designed to fit the company’s large-diameter Series 318 and Series 319 SW twin-cutter boring heads.

The face grooving system can be used as either a single or twin cutter grooving tool for diameter ranges from 2.087” to 118” diameter. The design allows for a grooving depth of as much as 0.472”, with a minimum width of 0.079” and a maximum of 0.375”.

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

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 as much as 0.472”, 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, because of an eccentric bolt mechanism with clear direction indication.
