The Accure∙tec anti-vibration A3000 boring bar from Walter (Waukesha, WI) has a patented vibration dampening system that distinguishes it from those made from conventional steel or solid carbide boring bars – it actually excels at length/diameter ratios beyond 6 x Dc – the point where other boring bars can prove less efficient.
Available in lengths of 6, 8, and 10 x Dc and boring bar diameters of 1.25, 1.50, and 2.00 in. (32, 40, and 50 mm) with additional sizes and lengths available on request, Accure∙tec A3000 offers Capto C6, C8 connections along with HSK100T connections – standard. To reduce downtime and make them more versatile, they also feature compact, robust QuadFit precision quick-change exchangeable heads.
Internal coolant delivery for optimum chip removal adds to the superior surface finishes achievable with the Accure∙tec 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 won’t have to worry about time-consuming “fine tuning” of the dampening function, as the patented anti-vibration feature is preset at the factory – this tool is ready for quick application. Available with both negative and positive inserts, it uses Tiger·tec Silver grades to ensure maximum turning productivity.
