Big Kaiser has moved production of its CAT50 milling adapters to the U.S. The company says product performance and design will not change, but the move allows for more variation and faster delivery of special lengths for specific applications.

As awareness of Smart Damper has spread, more and more customers have asked for specials for their unique projects. This allows the company to do more of that without the delay of coordinating with partners overseas and additional shipping time.

The Smart Damper is a damping system with a counterweight and friction damper that eliminates vibration to enable fine surface finishing and higher metal removal rates.

Smart Damper adapters are also available for turning and boring applications.
