Rigibore

MBX Unit

Rigibore MBX boring units are precision units for mounting into standard or special boring tools.

  • These units are pre-tensioned, to eliminate backlash and allow adjustments only to be made from the front of the unit.
  • Self-clamping or self-locking.
  • Can be mounted in the same tools as a Sandvik R/L148C or T-MAX U fine boring unit.

Note: The MBX unit cannot be adjusted beyond its range and no range indicator is required.

Each graduation on the adjusting dial = 0.005 mm / 0.0002 in. adjustment on radius.
Each vernier graduation on the bush = 0.001 mm / 0.00004 in. adjustment on radius.
  1. Mounting

    Ensure that the unit is correctly secured in its mounting hole and the 3 screws are clamping correctly.

  2. Adjustment

    The units are pre-tensioned and adjustment is made from the front only. To adjust outward, rotate the dial clockwise with the correct adjusting spanner. Each graduation on the adjusting dial = 0.005mm/.0002 inch on radius. Each graduation on the bush = 0.001mm/.00004inch adjustment on radius.

    When adjusting downward, rotate the dial in the opposite direction a little more than required and adjust up to the new setting on the dial.

  3. Maintenance

    The unit is lubricated and assembled to very close tolerances. It should not require any further attention under normal operat- ing conditions. If a unit is accidentally damaged, it is recommended that it is returned to Rigibore for assessment / repair.
