PROVEN EXPERIENCE & TRUSTED RESULTS

Our significant investment in research and development enables us to monitor trends and identify challenges so that we can continuously offer you advanced products for today’s materials and machining processes.

EXPAND YOUR POSSIBILITIES

At Seco, there’s no such thing as status quo. We believe in ongoing research and development to ensure that every product we bring to market solves a need and makes our customers more productive and profitable.

Consider the cutting tools in this Seco News Summary. We’ve expanded several of our popular product lines, including Combimaster, Jabro-Solid2, Minimaster Plus, Steadyline heads, Threadmaster Tap and Precimaster Plus, so there’s no limit as to what you can achieve with our tools.

We’ve also launched three TP grades, TP2501, TP1501, and TP0501 that cover every need in the application area. And because these grades are the first to feature our next-generation Duratomic® technology, they are the most reliable, predictable and productive of their kind.

For more than 80 years, we've continuously provided the tools, processes and services that shops rely on to stay ahead of the manufacturing curve and, as you will see inside this Seco News Summary, there’s no stopping us.
