Seco Tools LLC is adding turning bars to this Steadyline line of damped tooling. The GL connection on these turning tools makes it possible to perform rotating and static operations with the same bar. The GL connection on these Steadyline milling holders makes it possible to perform rotating and static operations with the same bar.

These turning bars reduce unwanted vibrations in extreme cutting conditions. This is accomplished via a “dynamic passive system” inside the holder body where a heavy metal mass counteracts vibrations created by the holder’s flex during machining operations. Steadyline products can perform typical long overhang operations with higher productivity then traditional tools, reducing spindle stress as well as offering high metal removal rates, smooth part surface finishes and long tool life.

The GL connection on these turning bars has a polylobe taper interface with two, 180-degree positions that orient the tool’s cutting edges either face up or face down for effective chip control. The connection also has a strong, fast locking capability that is made possible via a single integrated clamping ring that draws in the tool head for a secure, stable taper-face contact. Once a turning bar is set it becomes possible to mount and remount tooling heads without having to reset the system.

While common traditional systems use several fastening screws and devices for exchanging tooling heads, the GL connection on the Steadyline turning bars requires only the use of a spanner wrench to loosen and tighten the tool heads.
