Modular Boring System Reduces Chatter and Eliminates Scrap

Allied Machine & Engineering will be featuring three product lines at SOUTHTEC next week, including their full line of Wohlhaupter modular boring systems.

Wohlhaupter boring systems include the new vibration dampened intermediate modules, NOVITECH, as well as Vario-Bore, Alu-Line, and Combi-Line. This collection is manufactured in Germany by Wohlhaupter, whose innovative boring systems are now part of Allied's solutions for hole roughing and finishing applications, offering flexibility and modular integration.

The Wohlhaupter NOVITECH vibration dampened intermediate modules significantly reduce chatter in extended-reach boring operations. NOVITECH increases boring operations' productivity, surface quality, and process reliability while extending the insert and machine center's spindle life. The modules feature Wohlhaupter's Multi-Bore connection (MVS), making it simple to use with existing Wohlhaupter components.

The Vario-Bore boring system improves productivity through its ease and accuracy of adjustment, virtually eliminating scrap. The Vario-Bore head can be used alone or with a docking port for use with the universal digital module. With an easy to read and use display that provides micron accurate settings, the module features an accuracy of .0001 inches (0.002mm) on diameter.

Alu-Line, their light-weight rough and finish boring tools, offers an impressive diameter range stretching from 2.56 -- 128.15 inches (65mm -- 3255mm). Alu-Line is reported to be up to 50 percent lighter than steel alternatives currently on the market, resulting in reduced stress on the machine and less runout in extended length boring operations.

Combi-Line gives machinists the power to perform rough and finish operations with a single tool, reducing cycle time and inventory cost. One-pass boring is much quicker in comparison to helical milling or the dual-pass process of roughing followed by a finishing pass.
