The acuwire-S is designed to hone bores from 0.10 to 0.80 mm. As all Schläfli machines the acuwire-S is perfect to machine hard material as ruby, carbide, technical ceramics and steel. It is possible to mount long single parts as well as multiple short parts. Depending on the workpiece geometry the parts are cast into a quill shaft or a mechanical clamping fixture is used.
