TaeguTec has released specific sleeves for quick and easy setting of Hush-Bore boring bars. The vibration free Hush-Bore boring bars are cylindrical shank type products, with no flat parts, for deep internal turning operations in 7xBD to 10xBD (BD: shank diameter) range. Therefore, based on the flat surface design of the head, set up time can become an issue.
To solve this issue, TaeguTec has launched Hush-Bore sleeves that can be easily set up in the machine’s tool holder.
These specific sleeves with one-sided slit maintain a robust clamping force and high precision because of its wide contact area when combined with the new Hush-Bore shank. First, gently tighten the flat surface onto the sleeve with a screw onto the holder. Second, match the Hush-Bore’s shank line with the sleeve-line. Third, check the zero setting with the dial gauge, ensure it is within ±0.01 mm. Fourth, secure the sleeve by screwing tightly to the tool holder. Thereby, making for easier, faster setting time with better accuracy.
Features include easier and faster shank setting time due to simpler, yet practical design, robust clamping force and high- and precision and is available for the full sleeve line for the Hush-Bore shank diameter range 16mm to 50mm.
