The HSK-T/A connection allows the tooling to perform static turning operations on lathes with HSK-T spindles as well as boring operations on machining centres with HSK-A spindles. HSK-T and HSK-A are fully compatible, the difference being that HSK-T features one driving slot with reduced dimensions and tighter tolerances. The HSK-T/A63 is available in 6xD and 8xD lengths, while the HSK-T/A100 is available in 6xD, 8xD and 10xD lengths.
The Seco-Capto C8 connection complements the existing C4, C5 and C6 sizes. It is available in 6xD, 8xD and 10xD lengths.
Steadyline turning/boring bars reduce unwanted vibrations in extreme cutting conditions via a “dynamic passive system” inside the holder body, allowing for high metal removal, less machine tool stress and smooth part surface finishes. This allows turning and boring operations to achieve long reaches that are not possible with conventional bars, or higher cutting data compared to a conventional bar with the same length. The compact, modular GL connection on these bars provides high centring accuracy and repeatability of the fitted turning tool or boring head, as well as fast tool changes.
