Smartbore's® patented boring technology electronically measures the actual movement of the insert slide and gives the diameter adjustment reading after confirming the movement.
This manually operated system provides simplicity to precision manufacturing, allowing adjustments to be made without removal from the machine spindle by use of the handheld Smartbore Digital Adjuster.
Precision diameter changes can be monitored by the operator, displayed clearly on the LCD Adjuster screen. Swivel barrel orientation allows clear viewing in horizontal or vertical spindle position.

The Smartbore cartridge contains an integral position transducer. This is activated by the Adjuster when the connection is made.
The Smartbore Adjuster contains a rechargeable power source, together with the control electronics necessary to display the adjustment reading on the LCD.
The Adjuster also supplies power to the cartridge position transducer when connected. The transducer returns position data to the Adjuster which is then interpreted and displayed on the LCD.
