New Seco GL Threading Head Additions Expand Range of Deep-Hole Solutions
Fagersta, April 2019 – Reduce rejections that can scrap large, expensive workpieces during deep-hole operations with two new GL25 threading heads for Steadyline® turning and boring bars from Seco Tools. These new threading heads extend the range of GL Heads and Steadyline® bars with an improved selection of products that increase production accuracy, improve high-quality surface finishes and reduce down time related to insert indexing and head changing. 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.
For operations inside deep hole diameters as small as 30 mm, the compact new GL25 heads add stability up to 10xD with the high repeatability of the Seco GL25 connection on Steadyline® ø25 mm (1") bar diameters, assuring that shops can take advantage of the system's reach/overhang capabilities and highly effective anti-vibration technology. The GL connection with optimized wall thickness achieves centering accuracy and probing repeatability within 5 µm, offering increased operational versatility and faster and easier tool changes. Seco Tools designed these new GL25 threading heads for integration with Seco Jetstream Tooling® high-pressure coolant capability.
