Walter launches vibration-damped Accure tec adaptors

vibration-damped Accure tec adaptors were specifically developed for low-vibration turning and milling with long overhangs. Now, the Accure tec A3000 boring bars and the adapters for the AC001 bore adaption milling cutter have a new feature — the vibration-damped AC060 adapter for ScrewFit exchangeable heads has been developed specifically for smaller diameters, and this will initially be available for the T18, T22 and T28 interfaces.
As with all Accure tec adapters, it has an axially and radially flexibly positioned damper element, which is pre-set at the factory. The taper locking ScrewFit connection and the conical shape of the milling adapter gives the tool a high degree of stability, which in turn leads to a high level of process reliability and high surface finish quality.
With the Accure tec AC060 milling adapter, operators can change tools easily and benefit from the many features of the ScrewFit range. This is considered of particular interest for mould and die making, where ScrewFit is frequently used, as Accure tec can now accommodate smaller milling diameters.
The vibration-damped AC060 adapter is suitable, for example, when thin-walled shapes need to be milled with minimum vibration. Operators also benefit from high concentricity at up to three-times higher cutting depths and lower noise levels, significantly longer service life of the tool and spindle, as well as a variety of machine-side interfaces. This include hollow shank tapers as well as CAT-V or Walter Capto steep tapers.
