Fine-Boring System

Newly upgraded Romicron fine-boring tools allow users to dial in extremely close tolerances while the tool is mounted in the machine tool. Using cartridges or boring bars, tools can be adjusted in diameter with a dial ring in 2-µm increments. New Romicron AVS tooling covers the diameter range of 25 to 79 mm (0.984–3 .11") and can run in high-speed spindles up to 20,000 RPM. The system consists of proprietary slide-gate mechanics that translates an adjustment in a relationship of about 10:1. This means a small adjustment by the operator at the tool is converted into a still smaller change of diameter at the cut.
