Criterion Boring Kits

Allied Machine & Engineering adds three new Criterion boring kits to its line-up. The kit selection includes a kit for 1.00” cylindrical shank, a kit for R8 shank and a kit for #4 Morse taper shank.

The boring tool sets were developed for a broad selection of diameter ranges from 0.125” to 4.000” and can be used on virtually any machine spindle from Morse taper to HSK, making them the perfect resource for any machinist. Allied’s newest boring kits provide considerable cost-savings over purchasing individual components. They also offer setup versatility for tool rooms in high production facilities as well as smaller contract job shops. The kits are contained in sleek, sturdy cases to assist in tooling inventory organization, as well as in transporting them from one machine to the next.

“Kits aren’t for everyone,” said Ben Morrett, product manager for Allied’s boring lines, “but if you work on different projects from day to day, you need to be prepared for the work tomorrow will bring.”
