Improve Efficiency with Big Kaiser’s ChipFans and T-Slot Covers
Big Kaiser’s ChipFans and T-slot covers are accessories that help machines reach maximum levels of productivity, even during downtime.
Chip fans offer many benefits when it comes to mitigating production issues and providing visible results. Mounting securely in either a collet chuck or end mill holder, chips fans are designed to integrate seamlessly into current machining cycles. In-process cleaning is created without halting production. Chip fan cycles can even be programmed to minimize spindle downtime and

maximize operator efficiency.
A pre-drilled hole allows spindles to shoot coolant through the center of the fan to rinse tables, fixtures and workpieces. Two cleaning operations in one happen as the fan rotates, removing the chips and coolant. This is said to make a safe and economical alternative that requires little to no operator interaction.
The T-slot cover tool accessory is designed to optimize machine performance, minimize manual operations and keep things running smoothly. The protection plates are designed with productivity in mind, preventing chips and coolant from collecting in machining centers and interfering with work. The covers keep slots clear of debris when not in use.
The T-slot covers are easy to remove as soon as the machine slots are ready to be used, allowing access to a clean fixturing surface and quick setup changes, the company says.
