Walter’s Accure∙tec anti-vibration A3000 boring bar is designed to excel at length/diameter ratios beyond 6 × Dc, which the company says is the point where some conventional steel or solid-carbide boring bars often prove less efficient. The unit is available in lengths of 6, 8 and 10 × Dc, and boring bar diameters of 1.25", 1.50" and 2.00" (32, 40 and 50 mm), with additional sizes and lengths available on request. Capto C6 and C8 spindle connections along with HSK100T connections are also offered as standards. The company says the boring bars feature compact, robust QuadFit precision quick-change exchangeable heads, which boost versatility and decrease downtime. The unit also features internal coolant delivery for optimum chip removal to help achieve superior surface finishes. The  anti-vibration feature is preset at the factory, so the tool is ready for quick application. The tool is also available with both negative and positive inserts, including Tiger Tec silver grade materials for turning productivity. It is said to provide fast and productive counterboring and internal profiling of parts for industries such as aerospace, oil and gas, and general metalworking.


  • Broaching On A Lathe

    Producing a keyway, spline or similar longitudinal feature on a turned part usually necessitates an additional, time-consuming, secondary operation on a broaching or slotting machine. That means moving the part to and from a secondary operation, an extra setup, additional labor and hourly machine costs and all of the other headaches that go with secondary operations.

  • Thread Whirling Basics

    The rapidly increasing demand for high-value threaded parts with exceptionally high length-to-diameter ratios has created a lot of interest in thread whirling technology among American shops and manufacturers.

  • Swiss-Type Machines: More Than Just A Lathe

    CNC Swiss-Type machines have more capability built in than ever before. Many of these capabilites can be accessed using attachments that increase the throughput of the machine tool, improve the quality of the work coming off the machine and reduce or eliminate the need for secondary operations even for very complex workpieces.
