Walter Tools recently presented Accure·tec, which provides a damping system specially for turning and milling using tools with a long projection length. The vibration damping provided by the axially and radially flexibly positioned damper element is preset at the factory.
Turning operations up to 10 x D can be manufactured with high process reliability and with very good surface finish quality using the A3000 boring bars. The equally new QuadFit quick-change heads enable rapid tool changes and increase repeat accuracy (±2 µm). When milling, Accure·tec AC001 adaptors up to 5 x D can be used with cutting data up to three times higher than conventional tools.
Accure·tec AC001 adaptors are ideally suited to the company’s milling cutter range. This applies in particular to high-feed milling cutters, which have their main cutting force in the direction of the spindle. This means that the system is highly versatile. With turning applications, the focus is on the energy sector (e.g. valves for the oil industry) and/or on the aerospace industry (e.g. landing gear). Users benefit from good vibration damping and a system with low noise levels.
