The MicroKom BluFlex boring head from Komet incorporates Bluetooth wireless technology to isolate the display from the tool head. When dialing in the micro-adjustable head, the operator can affix the magnetic external display unit anywhere within the field of view outside of the machine tool. The display can switch between mm and inches, and its illuminated screen and oversized numerals make reading easier. According to the company, this system makes it simpler, safer and more convenient to read the head’s settings.

 
The system also features a specially-designed adjustment key with integral Bluetooth interface. The same display unit and adjustment key can be used for multiple MicroKom BluFlex boring heads. These heads feature an integral part-balancing system that enables them to achieve rotational speeds up to 20,000 rpm, while the modular ABS interface provides for easy adaptation to different machine spindles. The heads also have an energy-saving automatic shut-off function and use common AAA batteries.
