Digital Boring Heads
The DigiBore self-balancing boring heads offer a 0.118' to 8.195" boring range with coolant through the tool up to 580 psi at a maximum speed of 16,000 rpm. The "zero-out" function displays + or - fine adjustments in 0.0001" increments. The heads incorporate completely sealed electronic transversal measuring technology for 0.0001" accuracy, the company says.
The right choices in tooling and technique can optimize the thread turning process.
Reducing cutting fluid use offers the chance for considerable cost savings. Tool life may even improve.
The more common twist drill point geometries often are not the best for the job at hand. By choosing the best point for the material being drilled, it is possible to achieve better tool life, hole geometry, precision, and productivity.
