EasyFix sleeves are a solution for cylindrical boring bars reducing set-up time. A spring plunger mounted in the sleeve clicks into a groove in the bar to guarantee the correct centre height.
The slot in the cylindrical sleeve is metallic sealed which allows the existing coolant supply system to be used. The metallic sealing offers good performance also for high coolant pressure.
- Fast set-up time
- Simple to use
- Extended tool life
- Excellent surface finish
- Correct cutting edge centre height and position
- Spring plunger solution (spring loaded ball) in the sleeve and the bar groove gives correct centre height of the insert every time you make a tool set-up.
- Metallic sealing offers good performance for coolant pressure up to 150 bar (2200 psi).
The EasyFix sleeves fit a wide range of products:
- CoroTurn® 107
- CoroTurn® 111
- Silent Tools damped boring bars
- CoroCut® boring bars
- CoroCut® MB
Do not use EasyFix sleeves for boring bars with flats, as you won’t attain the advantage of finding the correct centre height of the bar without the groove. A bar with flats normally clamps with screws from the top and locates on the flats of the bar.
When using a clamping set-up, tighten the screw closest to the front of the tool first for best rigidity and clamping effect.
