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 center height.
The slot in the cylindrical sleeve is metallic sealed, which allows the existing coolant supply system to be used. The metallic sealing also offers good performance for high coolant pressure.
- Fast set-up time
- Simple to use
- Extended tool life
- Excellent surface finish
- Correct cutting edge center height and position
- Spring plunger solution (spring loaded ball) in the sleeve and the bar groove gives correct center height of the insert every time a tool setup is made.
- 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 the advantage of finding the correct center height of the bar without the groove will not be attained. A bar with flats normally clamps with screws from the top and locates on the flats of the bar.
When using a clamping setup, tighten the screw closest to the front of the tool first for best rigidity and clamping effect.
