The Series 318 Large Diameter Boring System is designed for heavy roughing of bores—and a special adapter can extend the system even further. The lightweight and secure configuration makes it ideally suited for higher speed operations-up to 6600 SFM. For use on production machines such as boring mills and machining centers with spindle taper sizes of 40 and larger.
The system is based on aluminum extension slides of different lengths, which support a variety of aluminum and steel components for roughing and finishing tool assemblies. The mounting components are pinned to fit onto specific locations on the slides, and secured with steel bolts. The precise positioning of the components on the slide along with incremental adjustment scales for insert holders permit diameter and length setting without a tool presetter.
