ZX bottle boring tools enable a manufacturer to machine complex internal shapes, sophisticated bore transitions and undercuts. Generally used on HBM Machines, these tools can also be adapted to suit Deep-Hole-Drilling machines, Mill turn machines and Horizontal and Vertical lathes to produce internal extended reach cavities, seat pockets and bottle shaped contours including roughing and finishing operations in one set-up.
The ZX bottle boring tool is supported with a proven pilot system, either utilising a rotating O’ring pilot assembly, designed to keep coolant and chips away from the tool body or via coated carbide wear pads. The tools are designed to use ISO inserts within cartridges or directly fitted into the toolslide. The tools can be adapted for extreme pressure coolant systems, including Jetbreak®, to help with swarf removal.
