Seco Deepens Turning Capabilities with Steadyline® Tooling Additions
Fagersta, October 2018 — Seco Tools expands its long-reach turning and boring capabilities with additions to its well-known series of Steadyline® vibration-damping turning/boring bars and their respective heads. These new products include 25 mm (1.00") diameter Steadyline® bars, GL25 turning heads, 100 mm (4.00") diameter Steadyline® bars, and additions to the range of rough and fine boring heads for Steadyline® bars.
Steadyline® turning bars use the most-effective vibration damping system in the industry for easy turning and boring to depths up to 10xD on small and large holes. The system’s passive/dynamic vibration damping uses a damping mass inside the toolholder bar and short, compact cutting tool heads to maximize vibration absorption, making it possible to use tool lengths up to 10 times the bar diameter without tool chatter or work interruptions.
With Steadyline®, shops can exchange turning and boring tool heads quickly and effortlessly using the unique Seco GL connection. The GL connection mounts heads to Steadyline® bars
quickly and firmly, with centering accuracy and repeatability of 5 microns and 180° head orientation capability if required.
The 25 mm (1.00") diameter bars with GL25 workpiece-side connection for 6xD, 8xD and 10xD reaches include carbide-reinforced bars for the deepest tool overhang challenges, along with Seco-Capto™, HSK-T/A and cylindrical shank machine-side interfaces.
The 16 new GL25 turning heads target applications including general turning, recessing and back boring with DN..11, CC..09, DC..07, DC..11, TC..11 and VB..11 inserts. Larger 100 mm (4.00") diameter bars accommodate existing GL50 turning heads and incorporate Jetstream Tooling® high-pressure coolant technology through BA-to-GL50 adapters. Boring heads with BA060 and BA080 machine-side interfaces allow for rough and fine boring at diameters from 66 mm to 115 mm (2.60" to 4.53").
