WNT has revealed that its range of micro boring and digital boring heads are delivering high levels of accuracy to customers requiring fine boring precision.

The company said its range of Digihead Digital Monobloc boring heads is capable of micron accuracy with both positive and negative adjustments being controlled by the unit’s backlash-free, direct distance measuring technology.

The use of this technology is said to eliminate any potential errors that may be caused by backlash in conventional boring heads.

The units feature a digital display, which is only activated when the magnet within the adjusting key swipes the unit, extending the life of the easily changeable battery.

The clear and easy-to-read display ensures accurate adjustment even while the head is in the machine tool.

The range of units can cover bore diameters between 3.0mm and 88.1mm and they can be operated at speeds up to 16,000rev/min.

Further versatility is provided by the availability of units as either standalone Digihead with a HSK-A 63; MAS BT40; or DIN 69871 (SK40) machine interface or as complete kits that include the Digihead and four boring bars.

More conventional boring is provided by WNT’s Single Point and Multi-Head fine-boring sets, which cover diameters from 3mm to 320mm.

For diameters between 3mm and 88.1mm, this is achieved using a single, adjustable head with one of four boring tools or a selection of two adjustable boring bars.

For diameters between 88mm and 320mm, only two interchangeable bridges are needed to span the whole diameter range, helping to keep costs to a minimum.

Adjustment is made via a large scale with one division equating to 0.005 radial movement.

The Single Point and Multi-Head systems can be bought as individual items or as cost-effective kits to cover a range of diameters.
