How can Rigibore improve your Boring operation?


ActiveEdge is an automatically adjustable boring tool, allowing any machine tool to hold a close tolerance bored diameter and creating micron-accuracy in adjustment without the need for an operator’s intervention.

This superior boring solution by Rigibore creates a more efficient,accurate and productive boring operation whilst minimizing costs and improving health and safety.

Smartbore Technology

Another innovative boring solution is Rigibore’s Smartbore technology. This fast, easy to use, manually-operated tool adjuster allows operators to make micron-accurate adjustments to a tools cutting edge whilst remaining in the spindle.

The benefits of Smartbore technology can also be successfully applied to small hole boring operations, through the Smartbore Nano.This boring head can be adjusted with micron-accuracy in the machine spindle, offering adjustment ranges from 0.5-16 mm in diameter, with its simplistic design needing no clamping or unclamping in adjustment.
