Big Kaiser’s C-Centering Cutter is a multifunction cutter capable of spot drilling, centering and chamfering. The indexable cutter uses a specialized insert that can start a hole from a solid piece, according to the company. It can perform spot drilling and 90-degree chamfering at the same time, or it can strictly be used for hole chamfering.

During spot drilling, the insert nose radius can be chipped with general cutters since the center has a peripheral speed of zero. The cutter’s coolant hole cools the cutting edge, which reaches high temperatures during spot drilling, and aids in chip evacuation.

  • Swiss-Type Machines: More Than Just A Lathe

    CNC Swiss-Type machines have more capability built in than ever before. Many of these capabilites can be accessed using attachments that increase the throughput of the machine tool, improve the quality of the work coming off the machine and reduce or eliminate the need for secondary operations even for very complex workpieces.

  • Broaching On A Lathe

    Producing a keyway, spline or similar longitudinal feature on a turned part usually necessitates an additional, time-consuming, secondary operation on a broaching or slotting machine. That means moving the part to and from a secondary operation, an extra setup, additional labor and hourly machine costs and all of the other headaches that go with secondary operations.
