Swarf removal presents a tough challenge when bottle boring. If machining a through hole, the swarf can simply be flushed out of the hole by the workpiece spindle through coolant system. However, in the case of blind holes, and especially with the machining of materials such as nickel based alloys or titanium, the swarf needs to be broken up using high pressure coolant directly onto the insert and through suitable channels.
The Cogsdill Bottle boring tools are designed to use ISO inserts within cartridges or directly fitted into the toolslide. Therefore, depending on the materials to be machined the customer has the flexibitly to use the latest technology and grades of inserts.
The ZX Bottle boring tools are generally used on HBM Machines where the components are too large to be machined on a lathe, however 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.
