An Automated Boring solution
Producing micron accurate bores
This fine boring system offers unparalleled savings and a tangible return on investment by reducing labour costs, eliminating scrap and supporting 24 hour production through lights-out manufacturing.
Modern CNC machines, regardless of their sophistication, cannot automatically compensate a boring tool’s cutting edges. Rigibore’s ActiveEdge tooling in combination with in-process bore measurement has overcome this problem.
The Zenith system integrates ActiveEdge tools with in-process gauging to enable a machine controller to automatically compensate for insert wear, temperature changes and material inconsistency without manual intervention and without stopping the manufacturing process.
Rigibore refers to this process as closed-loop tool compensation, eliminating scrap and enabling organisations to meet precise tolerances and production targets in a consistent and repeatable manner.
