ActiveEdge Nexus
The ActiveEdge Nexus from Rigibore includes coarse-adjustment and fine-setting capabilities, in addition to automatic cutting edge compensation in the machine tool. This design is a self-contained module added to flanges.
It provides an automatic fine-adjustment modular solution for diameters from 275mm (10.8268“) to 1,020mm (40.15748“).
The module has a radio transceiver, battery compartment and contains a micron-accurate ActiveEdge cartridge.
Coarse adjustment is set manually in the toolroom.
ActiveEdge adjustments:
1. 3T Adjustment - Diameter changes are made through wireless transmission, using the 3T remote adjuster.
2. Closed-Loop Boring - Diameter changes are made without the need for operator intervention as part of a closed-loop boring system.
3. NC-PerfectBore - Integrated with metrology software products for a total automation solution to achieve perfect bores.

  • boring


    Enlarging a hole that already has been drilled or cored. Generally, it is an operation of truing the previously drilled hole with a single-point, lathe-type tool. Boring is essentially internal turning, in that usually a single-point cutting tool forms the internal shape. Some tools are available with two cutting edges to balance cutting forces.

  • metrology


    Science of measurement; the principles on which precision machining, quality control and inspection are based. See precision machining, measurement.
