The digital readout is compatible with all of Allied Engineering's Wohlhaupter toolsClick image to enlargeAllied Machine and Engineering’s Wohlhaupter digital tools have an external 3ETECH digital display for micro-precision adjustment.

3ETECH combines precision adjustment measurement in the tool with an external, dockable and detachable digital display that shows the adjustment setting. This micro-precision readout capability facilitates reliable machining processes for high-precision components.

A sensor unit fitted to the display makes direct contact with the tool to record the adjustment travel. Wired, Bluetooth or magnetic connections are not required.

The 538052 (537052) precision boring cartridge is one of the tools equipped with 3ETECH. Made of hardened steel, it is extremely robust and resistant to all external mechanical influences. It can be used on serrated tool bodies and Alu-Line slide tools in the diameter range from 3.937-in. to 128.15-in. (100 mm to 3255 mm). Additionally, this precision boring tool can be adjusted without the aid of the readout. Its diameter can be set via a vernier scale in 0.0001-in. (0.002 mm) increments. This new tool offers an excellent price/performance ratio with extreme accuracy and strength in any industry.

The 3ETECH display unit docks onto the tool and is activated via a pushbutton. It then shows the relative adjustment value of the tool in 0.0001” (0.002 mm) increments of the diameter to enable high-precision boring. Because the readout attaches externally and is not built-in, it can be used with all Wohlhaupter tools that are equipped with 3ETECH sensor units. The external display is particularly suitable for tools having a small body diameter and for special tools with one or more adjustment units.
