Silent Tools™ for turning



To avoid vibration, use Silent Tools for overhangs over 3 × D.


​Ensure clamping length minimum of 4 × D.


​Use split sleeve mounting for maximum clamping contact. Sleeves used in split boring bar holders for downsizing facilitate the correct clamping length to minimize vibration.

Application tips

Maximum recommended overhang

  • The selection of boring bar material has a huge impact on achieving the best production economy
  • Overhangs up to 10 × DMM are usually solved by applying a steel damped boring bar to accomplish a sufficient process
  • Overhangs over 10 × DMM require a carbide reinforced damped boring bar to reduce radial deflection and vibration
  • Internal turning is extremely sensitive to vibration. Minimize the tool overhang, and select the largest possible tool size in order to obtain the best possible stability and accuracy
  • For internal turning with steel damped boring bars, the First Choice is 570-3C type bars
  • For grooving and threading where the radial forces are higher than in turning, the recommended bar type is 570-4C
