Rigibore’s Zenith, Completely Automated Solution For Production Of Precision Bores
Modern CNC machines, regardless of their sophistication, cannot automatically compensate a boring tools cutting edge.
The Zenith system integrates ActiveEdge tools with in-process gauging to enable a machine controller to automatically compensate for insert wear, temperature changes and material inconsistency without manual intervention and without stopping the manufacturing process.
Rigibore refers to this process as closed-loop tool compensation, eliminating scrap and enabling organisations to meet precise tolerances and production targets in a consistent and repeatable manner.
