New Bore Finishing Machines from Engis
According to the companys press release, the bore finishing tools are capable of achieving bore geometries to within 0.0002" in standard, blind and semi-blind bores. The machines feature a series of pre-set barrel-shaped tools with a slow wearing diamond coating that pass once through the bore while the tool, part, or both, rotate. As the single-pass bore finishing tool need not expand or contract over the finishing cycle, the system maintains maximum control over bore size and finish.
A range of standard and customized single-pass bore finishing machines are configurable to a range of gear production processes. The SPM Series is designed for finishing parts with bore sizes up to 1.5", configurable in four-, six- or eight-spindle models.
Customized automation packages are available for both in-bound and out-bound product flow. Additional benefits include more predictable results, fewer rejects, less frequent part inspection and SPC values of more than 2.0 Cpk.
