Cutting Tool Engineering's July 2022 issue will focus on how shops can meet demand for stringent boring operations. Bores must be machined with micron accuracy and maintain critical tolerances in low- and high-volume  manufacturing applications. To supplement this report online, CTE will address some of these solutions during its Ask The Experts webinar scheduled for 10 a.m. (CDT) on Wednesday, July 20th. The Ask The Experts panel will consist of Rigibore Inc. President Anthony Bassett and BIG DAISHOWA Inc. Senior Product Specialist Matt Tegelman.
