In spring, Walter launched its vibration-damped Accure tec adaptors, a product range developed specifically for low-vibration turning and milling with long overhangs.
Now, the Accure tec A3000 boring bars and the adaptors for the AC001 bore adaption milling cutter have a new feature. The vibration-damped AC060 adaptor for ScrewFit exchangeable heads has been developed specifically for smaller diameters, and will initially be available for the T18, T22 and T28 interfaces.
As with all Accure tec adaptors, this one also has an axially and radially flexibly positioned damper element, which is preset at the factory. The force-locking ScrewFit connection and the conical shape of the milling adaptor give the tool a high degree of stability, which in turn leads to a high level of process reliability and a high surface finish quality. With the Accure tec AC060 milling adaptor, operators can not only change tools easily, but also benefit from the many features of the ScrewFit range. This is of particular interest for mould and die making, where ScrewFit is frequently used – due to the smaller milling diameter.
The vibration-damped AC060 adaptor is suitable, for example, when thin-walled shapes need to be milled with minimal vibration. Operators also benefit from high concentricity (<5μm) at up to three times higher cutting depths and lower noise levels, a significantly longer service life of the tool and spindle, as well as a variety of machine-side interfaces (hollow shank tapers as well as CAT-V or Walter Capto steep tapers).
