Product Description

410-2, 410-3 Optical Boring Bar Alignment Kit

For Climax Portable Machine Tools© field machining systems

The Optical Boring Bar Alignment Kit is specifically designed to help you overcome common alignment challenges associated with wide-span boring applications. It is designed to work in conjunction with Climax Portable Machine Tools© field machining systems. This compact kit features light-weight portability, quick installation, easy operation and accurate results. This system eliminates the hassle of long reference bars and the guesswork of sag calculations, and allows for straighter bores in the finished product.
The key is an optical system that replaces traditional mechanical alignment methods. Simply install the telescope in a 2.250″ spherical bearing on one end of the bore, then point it toward a target mounted in a second 2.250″ spherical bearing on the other end. The system works with spans up to 50′ (or longer with special targeting).
Portable enough to take anywhere and simple enough that a single worker can perform the alignments unassisted, you will take your on-site boring equipment to the next level with the Optical Boring Bar Alignment Kit.

The Optical Boring Bar Alignment Kit is shown left as assembled in 2.250″ spherical bearings from Climax Portable Machine Tools, Inc.© Triangular red elements in photo simulate machine tool components.
