Allied Machine & Engineering will be highlighting the Wohlhaupter VarioBore precision boring head. It is designed for easy and accurate adjustment, which the company says makes it a versatile and cost-effective option for high-precision industries such as aerospace. Its 3E Tech removable digital display enables users to read diameter adjustments while the tool is still engaged in the machine’s spindle and can be used for multiple VarioBores, which improves accuracy and saves money, according to the company. Users can also read adjustments on the Vernier dial screw without the use of the display. The VarioBore has a diameter range of 0.016" to 5.985" and adjustment accuracy that is said to be held to 0.0001" (0.002 mm) on diameter. The VarioBore is designed to be used with counterweights that enable the user to run up to 27,500 rpm, improving finishes and reducing production time.

  • Measuring Taper For Toolholders And Spindle Applications

    Companies concerned about strict quality requirements regularly check toolholder tapers for wear or inaccuracy because these conditions can jeopardize the results of a critical operation. However, a shop can check tapers quickly and reliably with air gages. These devices can be used effectively without special operator training. For measuring taper in a production environment, few other methods can match the speed and performance of air, as multiple-circuit air jets can be placed in very small taper gages.

    A tooling system consisting of interchangeable cutting units and standardized locking units has a lot to offer users of CNC machines, whether for turning, milling, or both on a turn mill. These guidelines will help you think clearly about how modular, quick-change tooling can benefit your shop.

    I’ve said that the toolholder is the least appreciated element in many milling processes, but the pull stud (or retention knob) is perhaps the least appreciated component of the toolholder.
