Tag Archives: Cat 40 Haas

Tooling Dictionary…

Rel-e-gate (verb) ; consign or dismiss to an inferior rank or position

Example: The customer relegated the inferior boring heads to the cart while the Kaiser heads stayed in the machine making round bores that did not taper from top to bottom.

We ran 112.118 Kaiser finish boring heads in 303 Stainless steel on a Cat 40 Haas Mill, holding .0005″ tolerance and .0001″ roundness. Excellent results with the new Alcona coated inserts. Note in the photo below how the competition’s heads have small – difficult to read adjusting dials. Additionally, note how the boring bars mount on the head, fixed at a great distance from the main body.
