Digital Readout Module for Boring

Sept. 21, 2023
Diameter adjustment accuracy of one micron makes the DRO effective for holding precision hole tolerances on high-value parts.

ALLIED MACHINE and ENGINEERING, a manufacturer of holemaking and finishing cutting tools, announced the release of the 3ETECH+ — an enhanced digital readout module that is 100% compatible with current Wohlhaupter 3ETECH boring tools.

The new 3ETECH+ provides improved diameter adjustment accuracy of one micron, making it the ideal choice for customers who need to hold precision hole tolerances on expensive parts. High-production environments such as aerospace, heavy equipment and automotive also greatly benefit from the enhanced digital readout module to be used on Wohlhaupter digital boring tools including VarioBore versatile boring head, 420 (410) series boring heads, 465 (464) series balanced boring heads, 538 (537) fine boring cassettes, custom boring solutions and the newest Wohlhaupter product, the ES-Bore series of fine boring laydown cartridges.

As many machine shops move away from vernier dial (analog) adjustment because of the ease of use digital readout modules provide, having an external, removable digital module also eliminates the worry of costly digital tooling components being harmed by cutting chips or high pressure coolant. Wohlhaupter’s precision technology in the 3ETECH digital readout module has aided in improving boring applications, and the following enhancements of the 3ETECH+ add to the benefits for machine shops:

  • Enhanced visibility with backlit OLED display and larger screen
  • Easier charging capabilities with rechargeable battery via USB-C
  • Multiple display color options for optimal visibility in any environment
  • Screen auto-rotate function to match orientation of display module
  • Toggle between imperial and metric adjustment to accommodate all applications
