Walter USA's Accure-tec A3000 Boring Bar Features Vibration Damping
Walter USA’s Accure-tec A3000, with its vibration damping system, is designed to excel beyond 6 × Dc.
Walter USA’s Accure-tec A3000 features a vibration damping system that enables it to excel at length/diameter ratios beyond 6 x Dc. The tool is available in lengths of 6, 8, and 10 × Dc; boring bar diameters of 1.25", 1.50" and 2.00" (32, 40 and 50 mm); and Capto C6, C8 and HSK100T connections. Additional sizes and lengths are available on request. The boring bars feature QuadFit quick-change exchangeable heads. The tool is available with both negative and positive inserts.
Internal coolant delivery for optimum chip removal improves surface finish and enables counterboring and internal profiling of parts in industries such as aerospace, oil and gas, and general metalworking.
The Accure-tec A3000’s anti-vibration feature is preset at the factory for faster implementation. As such, the company says that users will not have to spend much time fine-tuning the damping function.
Chip control is the bane of every shop’s existence and knowing how to consistently break chips and control burrs in ductile steels like SAE 1018, 1020, and 8620 is the holy grail of the tooling industry. When a shop experiences chip control issues, it affects their bottom line either through machine downtime, scrapped or reworked components, lost inventory due to broken tools or even employee injury.
Combining a rotating tool with rotating work produces a machining operation that is distinct from standard turning or milling.
A recent visit to Sandvik Coromant’s headquarters in Sandviken, Sweden, revealed a handful of technologies that will impact machining and machine monitoring moving forward.
