The German exhibitors, who manufacture tools covering the complete range of internal contours that can be produced by the deep hole drilling technology, are deploying new inserts to optimize the chip geometry during solid boring. Moreover, instead of being mounted directly on the tool body, all inserts are now mounted into cartridges to markedly increase the life expectancy of the tools. As the company further reports, new skiving tools activated by coolant pressure have also been developed to reduce the machine set-up time when changing from solid boring to skiving. These new tools are claimed to effectively meet the highest requirements made on tolerances and surface quality.
Optimized tooling concepts for deep hole boring
In order to produce long bores with tight tolerance requirements and good surface quality, BTA-Tiefbohrsysteme have enhanced their tool range for solid boring and skiving.
