Seco Tool’s GL threading and grooving heads for Steadyline turning and boring bars enable deep-hole operations and reduce the risk of scrapping workpieces. The company claims that the heads increase production accuracy, improve surface finishes and reduce downtime from insert indexing and head changes.

Offered in right- and left-hand versions, the heads provide the high repeatability of Seco’s GL25 connection. The GL connection’s wall thickness allows for centering accuracy and probing repeatability within 5 microns. Additionally, the connection provides increased operational versatility and faster tool changes.

With its vibration damping system, Steadyline turning bars facilitate stable turning and boring on small and large holes as deep as 10×D . For operations within deep-hole diameters as small as 1.181" (30 mm), shops benefit fom the system's reach/overhang capabilities and anti-vibration technology.

  • Rolling Threads Has Advantages

    With macros and canned cycles resident in the CNC on most contemporary turning centers, single point turning of OD threads can seem like almost a default process decision. However, for numerous applications, OD thread rolling has inherent advantages as an alternative to cutting threads.

  • Where Dry Milling Makes Sense

    Liquid coolant offers advantages unrelated to temperature. Forced air is the fluid of choice in this shop...but even so, conventional coolant can't be eliminated entirely.

  • Machining Dry Is Worth A Try

    Reducing cutting fluid use offers the chance for considerable cost savings. Tool life may even improve.
