Enhanced boring head for machine centers

Article-Enhanced boring head for machine centers

The 2F-HB boring and facing head has been enhanced and adapted to operate in a machining center. One of the new features is the stop arm attachment, which can be activated to feed forward, or reverse and return to its original position.

The forward mode (moving from inside to outside) or the reverse mode (moving from the outside to the inside) can be activated to perform facing, grooving, boring, turning, backfacing, undercutting, and counterboring. Forward and reverse movement can be controlled to within .001 inch.

Additional new features are a gear drive system that generates a continuous feedrate of .0013 inch/revolution and a shank lock mechanism to accommodate the reversing function when the spindle is reversed.
