In 1948, the 25-year-old Mr. Kaiser decided to give up his permanent job and start his own business near Zurich, Swit- zerland. His vision was to advance the de- velopment of high-quality tools needed to keep pace with the increasing productivity of machine tool technology at that time. Mr. Kaiser had clear goals in mind: modern tools, manufactured in his own workshop, meeting high requirements. That meant designing tools which were strong, well balanced and capable of boring precise holes with high accuracy and surface quality. The result was a com- plete range of CKB (KAB) tool and clamp- ing systems for boring, milling, drilling and external turning that are still widely used in industries around the world today. It has been 70 years since Mr. Kaiser started his success story with strong will, much faith and a little bit of luck. Many things have changed in the world of man- ufacturing and technology, but the quality standards of Big Kaiser Precision Tooling are unchanged, the company says. :: Big Kaiser 888-866-5776, NEWS 12 PRODUCTION MACHINING :: JUNE 2018
