Big Kaiser’s SW Smart Damper rough boring heads with CKB modular connection incorporate a passive damping mechanism that functions as a counter action by way of high resonance friction action. The system’s damping capability minimizes the effects of high frequency oscillations, absorbing vibration effectively and allowing higher machining accuracy, the company says.

The modular CKB connection allows for an array of standard shanks and extensions to be adapted with the heads to create tools to extend over 16 inches, maintaining damping near the cutting edge and managing vibration in long-overhang setups. According to the company, the heavy-duty SW twin-cutter head with integral Smart Damper, for rough boring holes with a diameter of 1.614”-4.331”, creates deep bores into iron or steel workpieces without vibration or chatter. 

The SW Smart Damper can operate at cutting speeds of up to 660 SFM in steel at a length of 8 × D without chattering. The rough boring heads can also perform two roughing operations without needing to change any components due to individually adjustable insert holders, the company says.
