SpiroGrooving, a method for seal ring grooves developed by Sandvik Coromant, ensures high output of quality components and meets tough security demands. Used with the CoroBore XL system, the method uses a spirograph tool path to create close-tolerance seal ring grooves in a secure and productive way.

This solution is especially useful for making seal ring grooves in pre-clad machining of steel and stainless steel. The internal coolant feature of CoroBore XL enables machining in advanced materials. Roughing and finishing are carried out in the same operation, thereby significantly reducing machining time and improving productivity. Altogether, this solution ensures high output of quality components and process security when machining seal ring grooves.

SpiroGrooving uses a circular spirograph tool movement in a taper. This reduces chip thickness, enabling light cutting action and increased feed. Parts of the insert cutting edge have an interrupted cutting behavior, eliminating long chips that can tangle the tool and spindle.
