Smart Damper for Boring

Integrated Damping System


Smart Damper is a tool holder with an integrated damping system for extended reach boring and milling.

BIG KAISER’s Smart Damper incorporates a passive damping mechanism close to the cutting edge that functions as a counter action by way of high resonance friction action. The patent-pending system’s damping capability minimizes the effects of high frequency oscillations, absorbing vibration effectively and allowing higher machining accuracy.

When it comes to vibration and tooling the buzzword you’ll often hear is “overhang,” aka length-to-diameter ratio. That’s because as the overhang grows, it more decidedly becomes the most fragile element in the machining process and increases the chance of detrimental vibration. This is an especially common issue for die and mold, aerospace, automobile and oil and gas manufacturers.

Knowing that it’s also critical to have the damping elements as close to the cut as possible, most Smart Damper offerings are modular in design, allowing for an array of standard shanks to be adapted to create “custom” tools to extend over 16 inches, maintaining damping nearer the tool and managing vibration in long-overhang setups.

Please note: We have decided to change our tool connection description of KA/KAB to CK/CKB to be consistent with how the product is referred to globally. There is absolutely zero geometric difference between a tool marked KA/KAB and CK/CKB, it was simply a way to differentiate North American inch tools from metric tools sold throughout the rest of the world.
