Rigibore and Mazak partner to offer advantage through automation, running unique boring system, Zenith, which integrates ActiveEdge tools with in-process measurement, allowing the machine control to compensate the tool's cutting-edge, automatically.

This unique solution received a fantastic response at Mazak’s recent open house "Manufacturing solutions now", showcasing its ability to meet critical tolerances without removing the tool from the machining envelope and without any operator intervention.

Alan Mucklow, Managing Director UK and Ireland Sales and Service Division at Yamazaki Mazak commented:

Boring bar work has often slowed cycle times due to the need for extremely high tolerances and manual adjustment. The option to specify ActiveEdge technology with the VCN-530C offers Mazak users working in boring bar applications the ability to maintain cycle times whilst improving accuracy of the cut. Alan Mucklow, Mazak, Managing Director UK

Mazak Europe is now working with Rigibore and other Mazak manufacturing facilities across the world to integrate ActiveEdge technology into horizontal machining centres and INTERGREX technology, as well as offering a retrofit option for machines already in the field.
