-Vibration-Free Boring Bars with Bolt-On Heads –Nick Gaten, Director Global Product Management – Turning Products. Kennametal's new boaring system boasts the most effective anti-chatter mechanism ever developed by the company and also offers an extensive range of indexable heads and shank sizes. One of the most innovative aspects of the new bar is that it's plug and play-no need whatsoever for tuning or adjustments. Simply pull it out of the package, mount it in the turret, and get boring. The vibration-free boring system is the most easy-to-apply bar to bore with, but also the most productive; it's serrated, bolt-on connection at the bar’s business end securely clamps a variety of styles and sizes of indexable heads. In addition, the bars are both vibration and maintenance free due to it's cutting edge internal dampener. Test results show surface finishes as good or in most cases better than competitive “
