Anti-Vibration Boring Bar Offers High Productivity

New Walter Accuretec A3000 anti-vibration boring bar.

Walter has unveiled its new Accuretec anti-vibration A3000 boring bar. "Unlike conventional steel or solid carbide boring bars that are often ineffective at length/diameter ratios beyond 6 x Dc, the new Accuretec A3000, with its patented vibration dampening system, actually excels at length/diameter ratios beyond 6 x Dc-the point where those conventional steel or solid carbide boring bars often prove less efficient," said a company spokesperson.

Available in lengths of 6, 8 and 10 x Dc and boring bar diameters of 1.25", 1.50" and 2.00" (32 mm, 40 mm and 50 mm) with additional sizes and lengths available on request. Capto C6, C8 connections along with HSK100T connections are also offered as standards. "The new boring bars feature compact, robust QuadFit precision quick-change exchangeable heads that boost versatility and decrease downtime," said the spokesperson.

Internal coolant delivery for optimum chip removal is a feature that adds to the enhanced surface finishes obtained by the Accuretec A3000. It provides for fast and productive counterboring and internal profiling of parts in industries such as aerospace, oil and gas and general metalworking.

"Users of the new Accuretec A3000 boring bar will not have to worry about time-consuming fine tuning of the dampening function, since the patented anti-vibration feature is preset at the factory, so the tool is ready for quick application," said the spokesperson. "The new tool is available with both negative and positive inserts. In addition, with the new Accuretec A3000 anti-vibration boring bar for turning, maximum productivity is ensured by its use of Tiger·tec Silver grades."
