Rigibore offers a wide selection of roughing cartridges, qualified cartridges, finishing cartridges, ultra fine precision (UFP) and negative mounted or negative rake cartridges.

Rigibore also stock ISO cartridges, which are available both built into Rigibore special tools or as individual items for building in.

Competitive prices are offered on these replaceable cartridges worldwide through our global distribution network.

We recommend that UFP/UFW cartridges are used in boring applications only, not facing.

ISO Cartridges

Rigibore ISO cartridges come in a wide variety of sizes and are held in stock, they are built to accept all standard ISO indexable inserts. All insert types are competitively priced.

Rigibore ISO or lay in cartridges are ideal for roughing and semi-finishing boring applications.

Minimum bore: 15.6mm / .614"

Ultra Fine Precision (UFP/UFW)

Ultra Fine Precision (UFP) cartridges are ideal for high productivity in CNC boring applications. Rigibore UFP Cartridges allow customers to bore metal to tight tolerances.

Its flawless design results in reduced downtime, improved process quality allowing high precision and increased performance for the organisation integrating the cartridges into their operational process.

UFP cartridges have been shown to maintain tight tolerances more consistently over longer periods, having a significant effect on increasing productivity in a boring operation.

Rigibore UFP Cartridges feature zero backlash and are graduated to 5 Microns (0.0002”) per divisional on diameter over a range of 0.6mm / .024".

These tools have demonstrated significant accuracy in special tool boring operations, being easily adjusted to extremely high levels of accuracy.

Smartbore UFP/UFW

Smartbore cartridges are almost identical to UFP Cartridges, possessing the same flawless design and functionality. However they are adjusted using the Smartbore Adjuster (digital torx wrench) to plug in to the Smartbore cartridge, rotate the torx wrench handle to make your adjustment and retract from cartridge.

Rigibore Smartbore cartridges offer the customer easy adjustment with micron accuracy, this benefits to a number of organisational advantages including reduced presetting time.

These are adaptable for a single or multi-point cartridge system, and can feature any number of Smartbore cartridges per Smartbore tool.

These Smartbore cartridges are easily replaceable, if damages should occur in operation, cartridges can be replaced as opposed to the whole tool.

Smartbore cartridges achieve an adjustment of 0.001mm / .000" on diameter
