Steadyline Tooling for Long-Reach Work

Seco Tools has expanded its Steadyline vibration-dampening tooling system to include both small and large-diameter turning/boring bars. They are designed to provide a reliable, plug & play solution for increased productivity in large and deep bore operations that require long tool overhangs.

The new 2.36" (60 mm), 3.15" (80 mm) and 4.00" (100 mm)-diameter sizes are suitable for use in oil and gas applications as well as general machining of workpieces, while a new 1.00" (25 mm) diameter bar is well suited for both oil and gas as well as aerospace and automotive applications.

The Steadyline turning/boring bars feature a BA connection and incorporate a BA adapter to mount GL50 turning heads and GL threading heads. Seco's patented and versatile GL connection features a polylobe taper-face interface for centering accuracy, 100% repeatability and fast tool head exchanges. The GL connection allows shops to perform both static and rotating operations with the same bar.

The Seco GL heads have new additive manufactured clamps with internal coolant channels to accommodate the company's Jetstream high-pressure coolant. The internal channels direct coolant precisely to the cut zone to control heat and efficiently evacuate chips, providing quality part surface finishes and long tool life.

The advanced vibration dampening system of Steadyline tooling absorbs vibrations before they spread through the bar. Once a turning bar is set, users can mount and remount tooling heads without having to reset the tool.

Steadyline is available in 6xD, 8xD and 10xD bar sizes and in a range of types, including Seco-Capto C6, C8 and HSK-T. The system also features compact boring heads with the GL connection and both the bars and the heads feature internal coolant channels.
