Vibration-damped boring bars for turning applications

After the launch of the vibration-damped shell mill holders for milling applications, the Swedish tool manufacturer Seco Tools is presenting a new patented system for static turning operations.

Vibration damped Steadyline® boring bars with patented GL connection ensure fast, easy and precise tool head exchange.
Vibration damped Steadyline® boring bars with patented GL connection ensure fast, easy and precise tool head exchange.

There is an ever-increasing demand within industry for tools with a long overhang for the cutting of large, complex work pieces with deep cavities. However, the negative side effect of these tools is often vibrations. Vibration-damped Steadyline boring bars will reduce these vibrations by means of a specific damping element inside of boring bar.

User friendliness
Steadyline boring bars have a modular connection. This means that the polygonal taper-face interface of the connection features two 180° positions to align the cutting edges either face up or face down for effective chip control. With the extremely precise GL connection, users can quickly, easily and accurately exchange the turning heads on the Steadyline bars. Once the bar is set, users can mount and remount the tool heads without having to reset the system. The connection’s extremely strong and fast locking capability is made possible by a single in-built clamping ring that draws in the tool head for a secure, stable taper face contact. While common traditional systems use several fastening screws and devices for exchanging tool heads, the user of Seco’s Steadyline turning/boring bars only needs a single spanner to loosen and tighten the tool heads.

For demanding operations
As with Steadyline milling holders, the boring bars for turning deliver higher metal-removal rates, generate smoother, chatter-free workpiece surfaces and increase tool life, while reducing stress on machine tools. Vibration-damped Steadyline boring bars are highly suited to demanding turning applications with long overhangs in the industrial segments of general engineering, aerospace, automotive and power generation.
