ITC introduce new BIG Kaiser boring line

The expansion of the BIG Kaiser bore machining technology that is available in the UK from Industrial Tooling Corporation (ITC) has now been extended once again.

The new EWA 68 intelligent fully automatic fine boring tool recently received its world premiere at the EMO Hannover exhibition.

The new EWA 68 which will be available in the UK this autumn from Tamworth-based ITC, is an intelligent fully automatic fine boring tool that performs closed-loop boring operations without human intervention. With the EWA 68, there is no need to stop the machine tool to take measurements and manually adjust the boring tool.

This significantly reduces cycle times, increases productivity and reduces failure rates due to human error. This reduces costs and improves accuracy. Furthermore, the system enables the handling of multiple bore sizes and repeatable bores and it avoids time-consuming manual wear-out compensation.

At EMO 2023, ITC engineers were on the BIG Kaiser exhibition stand to demonstrate the full range of high-precision systems, including the new EWA 68 that was being showcased on a FANUC CNC machine.

The EWA 68 is available with three different insert holders that support a wide range of diameters from 68mm to 134mm – delivering an astounding adjustment precision of just ±2µm.

“The EWA 68 is the latest version of our extensive EWA system, which provides automation at a level far above any competitor product. This saves significant time and money for our customers,” said Giampaolo Roccatello, chief sales & marketing officer for Europe at BIG Kaiser

Developed by BIG Kaiser and available to precision manufacturers in the UK from ITC, the EWA system is based on BIG Kaiser‘s EWE digital fine boring heads and the EWN precision boring heads.
