World’s smallest digital boring head

Available in the UK from Industrial Tooling Corporation (ITC) is the world’s smallest digital fine-boring head. Developed by company principal Big Kaiser, the EWE Downsize, also known as the EWE 04-7, aims to improve the machining process, making workpiece production safer, faster and simpler.

Ensuring compact dimensions, the EWE Downsize does not have its own display to show diameter adjustment. Instead, the device connects wirelessly via an app that has been specially developed by Big Kaiser for use on smartphones, tablets and smart watches. Capable of running on both iOS and Android operating systems, the external app simplifies the monitoring and configuration of fine-boring heads to make operators more efficient and reduce the risk of costly errors. Tolerance zones are indicated by changing colours on the display of the remote smart device.
EWE Downsize has a length of 26 mm and an outer diameter of 19.6 mm, which makes it suitable for machine tools with spindle sizes of ISO 20, HSK-E25 and larger. The head covers a diameter range of 0.4 to 7 mm, and allows infinite length adjustment of the tool holder and a maximum machining depth of 16 mm.
Big Kaiser’s head of R&D, José Fenollosa, says: “The EWE Downsize is the vanguard for future developments in the field of micro-machining, demonstrating the strength of our in-house development capabilities in both analogue and digital solutions. This boring head is just one of many new and innovative products developed and manufactured by Big Kaiser, positioning the company to grow with Industry 4.0 and the digital transformation of manufacturing.”
