Coventry-based Hyfore Workholding
has introduced a comprehensive range of Acrow precision boring systems that are designed to cover all hole-making requirements. The portfolio includes the BSD fine boring system, the FBH/NBJ and the FBH84 modular fine boring systems.
The BSD system is available with a BT30, BT40 and BT50 variant as well as a shank end for clamping in existing collet chucks – a combination that demonstrates diversity and flexibility to meet the requirements of the user. It is perfectly suited to both rough and fine boring as the boring cartridges are securely clamped in the boring head. It is available with a range of options that includes adaptors for creating precision bores from 20 to 153mm diameter.
Furthermore, the high-quality BSD boring system has an effective machining depth from 50mm through to 240mm. With each setting on the scale equivalent to 0.005mm and an additional fine adjustment vernier setting scale that is precise to 0.001mm, the BSD system is perfect for most machine shops.
Complementing the BSD system is the FBH/NBJ modular fine boring system. Like the BSD, the FBH/NBJ is available with a round shank end to fit sleeves or collets, or as a BT30, BT40 or BT50 variant. Both systems are suitable for boring holes from 3.5 to 40mm whereas the boring head incorporates a rigid 55 or 64mm diameter head with an adjustment dial that increases in 0.005mm increments with a high precision vernier scale for adjustments of 0.001mm. The FBH/NBJ solution is offered with a through-coolant facility to direct flow to the cutting edge and support chip evacuation as well as extending tool life.
For longer reach applications, Hyfore Workholding offers the FBH84 modular fine boring system that demonstrates exceptional precision with its fine adjustment boring head system as well as a clamping and adjustment system for the corresponding FBH84 boring bars. This modular technology offers manufacturers a BT40, BT50, NT40 or NT50 back end that works seamlessly with the boring head that can be adjusted from 8 to 280mm diameter.
The FBH84 boring bars that seamlessly fit the boring head are available in a variety of diameter ranges and lengths, making the FBH84 boring line a very flexible boring system.
