  • Publication number: 20140277685
    Abstract: A precision boring bar and a numerical control boring machine using the precision boring bar are provided. The precision boring bar includes a bar body having an inner chamber therein. The inner chamber is filled with a fluid medium which is not compressed. An active diaphragm assembly and a passive diaphragm assembly are provided at two ends of the bar body and communicate with the inner chamber. The passive diaphragm assembly includes a blade seat for selectively locking a blade. When the active diaphragm assembly is activated to press inward, the blade on the passive diaphragm assembly is driven synchronously to protrude. To cooperate with the program control of the numerical control boring machine, the blade will generate micro feed during processing for the inner hole of a workpiece to form a non-round hole.
