Rigibore®’s ActiveEdge® technology is the first completely flexible, multi-point, remotely adjustable boring system for integration as part of a turn-key package for machine tool builders or as an aftermarket solution for your customers. ActiveEdge® delivers pioneering ease-of-use and accuracy by enabling micron adjustment of multiple cutting edges via a remote radio link – without touching the tool! The key to radical productivity gains in precision manufacturing.

Rigibore® recognises the relentless drive for ever finer tolerances and greater consistency. ActiveEdge® enables customers to achieve unprecedented levels of productivity through high-precision machining, better quality machined parts, closer tolerances, less waste and less downtime. Rigibore®’s innovative tool represents the optimum way to make fast, precise adjustments at the cutting edge in your machine!

  • Provides machine purchasers with a one-stop shop integrating operations, gauging and boring / metal cutting
  • Cost of integration for machine tool company is minimal when related to the overall selling price of machines
  • Potential to sell higher volumes of machines with ActiveEdge® capability

BENEFITS of ActiveEdge® for machine tool customers

  • Being able to hold a micron adjustment remotely – quality of bore and finish
  • Minimal interruptions in machining operations for gauging, tool checking and adjustment
  • No requirement for manual intervention to physically administer tool adjustment
  • Increased control over machining capabilities and operations
  • Compatibility with machine and its gauging operation
  • Production cost savings and operating efficiencies
  • Less manual intervention; less issues relating to potential accidents (Health and Safety)
