CoroBore® 820 is your first choice for rough boring. The comprehensive program of tool bodies, slides, shims and cutting inserts allow CoroBore 820 to be configured to suit the widest possible range of applications. The same programme can be utilized for productive boring, step boring and single edge boring. The system consists of adaptors with matching slides, shims and covers, making it possible to adapt the tool to various materials and conditions.



  • Versatile with three different operation types in one tool
  • Large standard assortment of CoroTurn 107 and T-Max P inserts
  • High metal removal rate due to three insert design



  • Short, rigid and compact giving maximum stability
  • Optional slide assemblies, individually adjustable axially and radially giving reduced inventory costs.
  • Cutting fluid through the tool for good chip evacuation



  • Dedicated geometries and grades for all materials
  • Use CoroTurn 107 screw clamping as first choice
  • Use T-Max P and CoroTurn RC for improved economy and process security in stable conditions.

CoroBore® BR30

A new generation of rough boring tools is available. For our latest boring solution within the same application area as CoroBore 820, see CoroBore BR30.



  • Start with a roughing geometry unless a small depth of cut is to be taken.
  • Choose a medium geometry for smaller cutting depths or improved chip breaking
  • Choose CoroTurn 107 for lower cutting forces
  • Choose negative inserts (T-Max P) for tough applications that require strong inserts and improved process security.
  • Step boring is an effective way to increase the depth of cut without excessive vibrations

​Tool holding

Bending stiffness and torque transmissions are the most important factors when choosing a tool holder for boring operations. For best stability and hole quality use Coromant Capto coupling or Hydrogrip holding tools.

Coromant Capto coupling is the only modular tooling system designed for all metal cutting operations, including all hole making methods. The same cutting tools and adaptors can be used in different applications and machines. This makes it possible to standardize on one tooling system for the entire workshop. Remember the following:

  • Choose shortest possible adaptor
  • Choose strongest possible adaptor
  • If reduction is needed, use tapered version if possible
  • For long overhangs (>4 x DCSFMS), use dampened adaptors
  • For long overhangs, ensure rigid clamping with flange contact to spindle if possible

Coromant Capto® system - first choice


First choice should always be tools with Coromant Capto coupling, which offers excellent repeatability and the best stability characteristics on the market. ​

CoroChuck 930 – first choice for boring tools with cylindrical shanks.


CoroChuck 930 precision chucks have a very good run-out precision and high torque transmission thanks to the latest Fulcrum technology. This technology delivers the best pull-out security on the market. ​ ​

Complementary adapters


Shrink fit adaptors can be used for accessibility purposes. However, CoroBore 825 with integrated dampening mechanism is preferable if accessibility is required.​

Collet chucks can be used together with CoroBore 825 cylindrical shanks. However, it is not the optimal solution due to lower clamping forces and larger run-out compared to HydroGrip. Furthermore, it is not individually balanced. ​
