Finally! The world’s first fully integrated, automatically adjustable fine boring head is here...
Rigibore deliver new heights of control on fine boring operations, meeting close tolerance requirements through automated tool compensation of the ActiveEdge Apex boring head.
This system allows manufacturers to increase production output and eliminate scrapped parts whilst removing the need for operator intervention.
The ActiveEdge Apex fine boring head provides precision performance machining bores from ∅ 0.25–26mm (.010–1.024") using standard boring bars.
The Apex boring head is available as part of a standard boring kit, available with insert and sleeve kits which allow the boring bar to be offset to meet the required diameter.
Zenith, Rigibore’s Industry 4.0 ready solution, integrates the Apex fine boring head with in process measurement, allowing the machine control to automatically compensate as the tool wears.
Zenith is unique by nature of its closed-loop system, not only compensating the tool to within a micron on diameter with no manual intervention, but also provides feedback to confirm the adjustment value has been reached.
The boring head can be adjusted anywhere in the machine, including the tool magazine whilst it remains idle waiting for the next bore to be machined, contributing to valuable time saved in the production process.
