The ZX boring, facing and contouring systems machine contoured surfaces in one setup or with a minimum number of tool changes. The tools are designed to run on horizontal boring machines with a CNC inner programmable quill. The tools can machine bores, counter-bores, tapers, threads and complex contours inside components with a range of diameters. According to the company, users report reduced setup times, higher machining rates and productivity increases compared with their previous methods. The company also offers a variety of other products, including the CX-2000 external roller burnishing machine, which sizes, finishes and work-hardens cylindrical diameters. Also on display will be the Flipcut back-spotfacing and chamfering tools; and tools for mechanical hole-deburring, precision reaming and boring, automatic recessing/grooving and generating heads.
