The Wohlhaupter VarioBore precision boring head system, available from Allied Machine & Engineering, is said to improve productivity through ease and accuracy of adjustment and to virtually eliminate scrap because of its exact adjustments. With a range of 0.016" to 5.985" (0.4 to 152 mm), the boring head provides an accuracy of 0.0001" (0.002 mm) on diameter, and speeds ranging to 30,000 rpm.

The boring head can be used alone or with a docking port and universal digital readout (DRO) module. A single universal DRO module can be used to set any number of tools that have docking ports. With an easy-to-read display, the module provides accuracy of 0.0001" (0.002 mm) on the diameter with setting accuracy of ±1 micron. The battery enables as many as 5,000 settings and is switched off after 30 sec. The detachable module remembers the last setting, even when it is detached. The module is coolant-sealed to IP 65. The system uses selected Wohlhaupter 019, MiniDigi, PrimeBore and DigiBore tooling.
