Modular Turning Bars With GL Heads


Turning bars with damped anti-vibration feature a patented GL connection that allows users to perform static and rotating operations with the same bar. The bars have 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 perform typical long overhang operations with reduced spindle stress as well as higher 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-deg. 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.


Available in 6, 8, and 10xD, including Seco-Capto C4, C5 and C6, and a broad selection of turning heads for CN, DN, WN, CC, DC, TC, TN, and RN inserts as well as heads for Snap-Tap threading.
