BIG KAISER introduces a new cutting data app for smart phones and tablets

BIG KAISER, a global leader in premium high-precision tooling systems and solutions for the metal-working industries, will be launching its new BIG KAISER App for precise cutting data of digital boring tools at the AMB Exhibition in Stuttgart, Germany.

Big Kaiser has developed a smartphone and tablet app to enhance the user-experience when assembling and running cutting tools while providing extremely precise cutting data. This app will also help operators fine tune the optimal cutting parameters for their tool assemblies. They can save their tool adjustment history in the app for future reference; this is an essential "piece-of-the-puzzle" for shops joining the smart manufacturing movement. 50 BIG KAISER boring heads, covering diameters from 0.4 mm up to 620 mm, are currently supported by this app. Cutting data for roughing and finishing tools is available in both metric and imperial units.

Using the app is child's play: Choose your tool, enter your values, calculate your cutting data, adjust your machine, make a measuring bore, mount a tool with the diameter of the measuring bore, and drill.

“Today, machining is just as much about controlling processes as the actual tools themselves. Manufacturing needs accurate, real-time and mobile information management and this new app delivers just that,” says Peter Elmer, CEO at BIG KAISER. “We are very excited by the app's crisp visual appearance, ease of use and the extremely precise cutting data that it will provide to our customers, everything at their fingertips for improved productivity and control.”

The key benefit that this app brings the user is that machine and tool data, parameters and settings are always available and can be monitored remotely in real-time. Comprehensive information is displayed on a large legible screen, providing greater comfort than the existing on-machine interface. More precise information should lead to improved decision-making, thereby contributing to the bottom line.

The BIG KAISER App is free of charge and available now at the Apple Store (iOS) and in the Play Store (Android).
