Genevieve Swiss Introduces Quick Change Multidec® MICRO-BORE System

Westfield, MA October 24, 2007...Genevieve Swiss Industries, Inc, national distributor and marketer of UTILIS® Swiss Type turning tools has introduced Multidec MICRO-BORE system that makes locating micro boring bars in the holder simple and easy for quicker micro-boring bar changes. The uniquely designed boring bar incorporates an angled back that locates the bar less than .0004" against a positive location pin in the bar holder. By simply hand tightening a fine pitch threaded knurled nut applies the force needed against boring bar snap ring.

No wrenches are needed, significantly limiting micro-boring bar breakage from slipping wrenches in tight tooling areas. The boring bar necks feature a multi-faceted surface for reduced harmonics, resulting in improved surface finishes and contributing to longer insert life. Ideal for small parts precision machining, especially medical applications, the MICRO-BORE system provides high quality internal machining operations including chamfering, spotting, threading, I.D. grooving and internal profiling. The solid carbide MICRO-BORE bars range in size from 1mm to 8mm. In addition, every boring bar and holder has thru-coolant capability. Different coatings are available to suit application requirements.
