Increase productivity & performance in fine boring applications

High precision system for large volume production where fully automated fine boring applications with extremely tight tolerances are required.

Covering a diameter range from 4–213mm (.1575–8.3858"), Romicron features a hole accuracy of up to IT6, hole cylindricity of up to 5 μm and hole position of up to 5 μm.

Applicable in any material, Romicron reduces setup time and scrap rates while increasing overall productivity and equipment efficiency.

Existing machines can be easily retrofitted to automated insert wear compensation using the standard Closed-Loop-Boring Pin.

Using a probe, time-consuming control cuts, costly sister tooling, or insert changes in the presetting area can be eliminated.

Diameter adjustment can be done inside the machine.

Features & Benefits

  • Fits with any standard Kennametal ISO turning inserts, for a broad range of application and materials.
  • 100% mechanical system with micron adjustment by hand or fully automated, for fast and easy diameter adjustments.
  • Precise diameter adjustment, for scrap rate and set up time reduction.
  • One click, one micron. Each click on the diameter adjustment ring is a precise one micron adjustment on the radius. See, feel, and hear it.

Diameter Adjustment Process

  • A probe measures and communicates the actual diameter to the machine control.
  • The machine control calculates the difference between the actual and the target diameter and calculates the number of required clicks on the Romicron tool.
  • After that the spindle moves with the Romicron tool to the Closed-Loop Boring Pin. The pin can be installed anywhere on the table.
  • The table engages with one of the holes in the diameter adjustment ring.
  • The spindle rotates around its own axis and the calculated adjustment will be applied to the tool.
