SpiroGrooving is a new, groundbreaking innovation – a simple yet sophisticated manufacturing process of grooves for sealing rings. The method is used with the CoroBore XL system and utilizes a spirograph tool path to create close-tolerance seal ring grooves in a very secure and productive way.
The tool path consists of tapered, circular ramping where the tool engagement is according to a set ramping-pitch for each revolution. An NC-code generator calculates the SpiroGrooving tool path based on a few input-parameters, such as groove diameter, process pitch and chosen maximum chip thickness. Tool presetting is done in a few simple steps.
This solution is ideal for making seal ring grooves in pre-clad machining of steel and stainless steel. The unique internal coolant solution of CoroBore XL facilitates machining in advanced materials. Roughing and finishing are carried out in the same operation, which significantly reduces machining time and improves productivity.
SpiroGrooving™ fulfils all the crucial objectives for machining seal ring grooves in the most efficient and reliable way:
- Considerably reduced cutting time through higher cutting data
- Very high process security
- Wide application flexibility with minimized tool inventory
- Quick and easy programming with the unique NC code generator tool and spindle.
