Boring heads Allied Machine expands boring tool product line
The manufacturer of holemaking and finishing cutting tools for the metal-cutting industry, Allied Machine and Engineering, continues to expand the Wohlhaupter boring tool product line with the launch of the 410 series fine boring heads as well as the expansion of the 464 series.
As the world’s smallest digital fine boring tool with a peripheral cutting edge, the unbalanced 410 series from Wohlhaupter has a diameter range of 20.00 mm to 29.00 mm. The 464 boring heads offer automatic self-balancing and bore diameters from 29.00 mm to 205.00 mm. These boring heads have a special design to minimise the residual imbalance produced by insert holder displacement. As a result, the tools remain stable even with light interrupted cuts throughout the entire machining process and achieve the tightest tolerances and optimum surface quality. Additionally, the insert holder can be rotated for reverse machining jobs.
The tools are available in the non-digital version with vernier scale adjustment or in the digital version for adaptation with the 3Etech digital display for μ-accurate adjustment. Wohlhaupter’s 3Etech digital display module can now be used with all types of precision boring tools including fine boring with the 410 and 464 series, versatile boring with Vario Bore, large diameter boring with the 537 finish boring cassettes and custom boring tool solutions. The digital display module is docked to the tool, allowing maximum coolant pressure to be used and eliminating the risk of damaging the digital components during operation. Users now only need a single display module for all tools with integrated 3Etech technology, which reduces tooling costs.
“The 410 and 464 series boring heads are the smallest digital boring tools of their kind on the market. Starting with diameters as small as 20 mm for unbalanced, and 29 mm for balanced, these boring heads offer the appropriate range for a wide variety of applications up to 205 mm on diameter,” says Frank M. Wohlhaupter, Managing Partner of Wohlhaupter.
