Modulhard'andrea


Modulhard’Andrea is a modular tool holder system for boring, milling, drilling, tapping.

It’s a rigid high precision system, conceived and manufactured with the most advanced design and production facilities, backed by experience over many decades in boring operations.  A system of extreme flexibility and simplicity suitable for machine tools, machining centers, and flexible manufacturing systems. It’s ideal for machining to closest tolerances with a high degree of surface finish as it has an internal coolant supply in all its components.

This system is available in 11 sizes with full interchangeability of all components. The MHD’ coupling is the heart of the tool system as it ensures the utmost rigidity and concentricity during milling and boring operations. This is achieved by the (patented) cylindrical-conical fit and by a radial expanding bolt for clamping and driving.

Arbor, Extensions & Reductions

Arbors are manufactured in accordance with DIN 69871 AD-B, MAS 403 BT AD+B, DIN 2080, ANSI-CAT, DIN  69893 hardened and ground to AT3 tolerance and the  ISO 26623-1 and are made of carburized steel.

Arbor sizes MHD’ 80, 110, and 140 are recommended for heavy milling operations and for bores deeper than 250 mm and exceeding 125 mm in diameter. Special arbors are available upon request.

Extensions of various lengths are available for each MHD’ size, which make it possible to optimize the desired machining depth.

Reductions are available for MHD’ components of a smaller size can be used by means of adaptor sleeves which allow greater interchangeability and ensure tool stability.

Carbide bars

D’Andrea solves the deep-hole boring machining by means of a wide program of BMD carbide bars having diameter 16, 20, 25, 32 mm diameter, and ending with MHD’ arbor.

BMD bars are built in three different lengths for the machining of holes (length diameter ratio), whose depth is 6.3, 8, and 10 times the diameter/bar. On BMD bars can be mounted: TS double-bit roughing heads, TRD-TRC-TRM Testarossa finishing heads, PE chucking tools for ER collets.

Balancing rings

The BLC balancing ring, with simple positioning of the two incorporated graduated counterweights, makes it possible to accurately and inexpensively balance the tool holder on which it is mounted.

The use of the BLC ring provides the following advantages:

  • - improvement of accuracy and surface finish
  • - a considerable extension of tool life
  • - a considerable extension of the machining center spindle life
  • - drastic reduction of vibrations and noise levels in the machining center.

Twin cutter rough boring tools

The twin cutter rough boring tools are easy and extremely rigid thanks to the extensive serrated areas in contact between the bit holder seats and the heads, together with the constant distance between the seat clamping screw and the cutter.

How to use it? The diameter setting of the cutters should be carried out with a tool presetting bench. Two-bit holders are used for roughing operations involving heavy chip removal. It may include:

  • two SSCC bit holders on the same plane and with the two cutting edges set at an identical radial distance for high feed rate roughing operations
  • an SSCC bit holder and an SMCC bit holder not at the same plane and with the two cutting edges set at different radial distances for high cutting depth roughing operations
  • the boring bars are fitted with a single bit holder for roughing and finishing operations involving normal chip removal.

Digital boring tools TR-Elettra 69K

The TR-ELETTRA is a finishing head, where the radial displacement of the tool holder slide is viewed on a built-in digital display, providing the operator with maximum speed and accuracy of adjustment. The operating range of these heads is extensive: from 2.5 mm to 2,700 mm depending on the size of the head selected. The entire TR-ELETTRA'S range is also available as a kit, complete with all the accessories necessary for its correct use. TR-ELETTRA, uses the well-known D’ANDREA MHD modular system and the new PSC modular system as coupling systems, in accordance with the standard ISO 26623-1. The TR-ELETTRA is the digital evolution of the TRM, the famous D’ANDREA micrometer finishing head.

Micrometer fine boring tools Testarossa TRM

The TRM heads in the D’Andrea Testarossa line have a protective rustproof coating. High precision work to IT6 tolerance, with excellent surface finish, is achieved using TRM boring heads. These are very sensitive and radial correction of 1 micron can be effected directly on the machine and easily read on the Vernier scale.

Large diameter boring system crossbars

The BPS double-bit crossbars cover a working area from ø 200 - 2700 mm. The BPS double-bit crossbars are constructed in aluminum and mounted on a steel double-bit plate.

Centesimal fine boring tools Testarossa TRC

High precision work to IT6 tolerance, with excellent surface finish, is achieved using TRC boring heads. These are very sensitive and radial correction of 5 microns can be effected directly on the machine and easily read on the Vernier scale.

Twin cutter rough boring tools Testarossa TRD

The twin cutter rough boring tool allows both roughing and high precision finish thanks to their rigidity and the sensitivity of the sliding mechanism which can achieve radial correction of 5 microns. This can be carried out directly on the machine and easily read on the Vernier scale.

The TRD head’s main advantage is the centesimal head adjustment.
