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.

Zenith is Rigibore’s completely automated solution to producing micron accurate bores.
Cross the line to productivity
Rigibore is the only company in the world that can automatically adjust multiple cutting edges on a single boring bar to within one micron on diameter.
