MTD’s Joe Reynolds traveled to Zurich in Switzerland to review the BIG KAISER indexable program and chatted with Takuya Ichii about this impressive range of cutting tools. This range boasts both integral and modular endmills with the original Face and Taper system called BIG PLUS. The advantages of the face and taper tooling are huge when machining all materials including improved surface finish, increased productivity and tool life. Takuya discusses a BIG PLUS BT30 tool holder that achieves the same or better results than traditional BT40 tooling because of the features of benefits of the BIG PLUS spindle. All BIG KAISER tooling is available from ITC in the United Kingdom.
