Seco News 2015-1

THE PRODUCTIVITY YOU NEED & EXPERTISE YOU RELY ON

For over 80 years, Seco has provided the cutting tools, processes and services that manufacturers from all metalworking segments rely on for maximum productivity and profitability. In fact, every new solution we introduce has an industry need in mind.

You’ll find this latest Seco News Summary to be a perfect representation of our customer-centric approach, as we introduce several new, highly versatile products that bring unmatched performance to modern milling, turning and threading operations.

 

 

HIGHFEED 2 & 4
MORE TEETH PER TOOL BOOSTS PERFORMANCE & PRODUCTIVITY

Seco’s Highfeed milling cutters permit up to three times faster machining than conventional methods. Shallow depths of cut paired with high feed per tooth rates provide greater metal removal rates for intensely high levels of productivity. Now, Seco introduces two new families into its Highfeed line up, including Highfeed 2, which is the world's smallest high feed milling cutter with indexable inserts.

SQUARE T4-08 HELICAL
NEW INSERT MOUNTING SYSTEM BOOSTS CUTTER STRENGTH & STABILITY

These helical milling cutters feature a new, innovative insert mounting style for specially designed inserts with four cutting edge capability. As a result, the new Helical T4-08 delivers longer tool life, strength, stability and rigid axial insert support for roughing and semi finishing difficultto- machine materials.

MINIMASTER® PLUS
NEW FIRST-CHOICE SHORTER LENGTHS BOOST STABILITY FOR DEMANDING APPLICATIONS

Seco continues to build upon its industry leading Minimaster Plus family with the development of new shorter flute lengths – the first of many planned product line additions. As part of the popular replaceable cutting head tool system, the new Minimaster Plus cutting heads with shorter flutes will handle higher cutting forces and, in turn, deliver increased metal removal rates in roughing and semi-finishing operations.

STEADYLINE™ COMBIMASTER
HOLDERS
JABRO® JPD & JC COMPOSITE END MILLS
FAST, EFFICIENT & WORKPIECE-SAFE COMPOSITE MACHINING

Seco has optimised its line of composite machining end mills with two new groups of end mills with four new geometries. These geometries are dedicated to cutting carbon and glass fiber composites along with carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP) and other such materials. The first end mill group – JPD – includes solid-carbide endmills with brazed polycrystalline diamond (PCD) plates, while the second – JC – encompasses a range of advanced solid-carbide routers.

DOUBLE OCTOMILL™ CASSETTE
HIGH VALUE & NEAR ZERO AXIAL RUNOUT WITH NEW CUTTER CASSETTE DESIGN

Seco introduces the new Double Octomill Cassette Cutter to its long successful range of face milling cutters. Using Seco’s advanced pinlocating technology, the new cassettes ensure fast, easy and precise insert positioning. Equally important, cassette pockets are adjustable to practically eliminate axial runout.

TURBO 10 PCD
PCD MILLING INSERTS FOR SMOOTH FINISHING

Seco’s new PCD-tipped milling inserts – designed mainly for finish machining aluminium – work alone or alongside carbide inserts in the same cutter body. When used together with carbide inserts, the Turbo 10 PCD inserts perform as wiper inserts in fixed pockets and deliver superior part finish quality. Conversely, running all Turbo 10 PCD inserts in one cutter body ensures maximum cutting parameters and that the inserts are used to their full potential.

X4 PCBN GROOVING
STABILITY & LONG TOOL LIFE IN HEAVY INTERRUPTED CUTS FOR CIRCLIP GROOVING

With the development of the X4 polycrystalline cubic boron nitride (PCBN) insert, Seco widens its carbide circlip-grooving insert product lineup. The new insert features a width size of 2.15 mm (ISO standard circlip/retaining clip size) and is specifically built for heavy interrupted/ unstable cuts – as with splines – in hardened steels..

TM4000

FIRST DURATOMIC®-COATED GRADE FOR THREADING INSERTS RESISTS WEAR & PREVENTS BUILT-UP EDGE

As an addition to its threading product range, Seco introduces its first Duratomic CVD-grade, single-point thread turning inserts. The new CVD-coated TM4000 grade threading inserts – designed primarily for steel applications – incorporate a special dual coating born from Seco’s industry-proven existing turning insert coating technology.

SMG V2
COMPREHENSIVE AND CONCISE CUTTING DATA

Seco has significantly expanded and simplified its SMG classification system for workpiece materials and their corresponding cutting data. Now known simply as SMG v2, the system originally derived its name from an abbreviation for Seco Materials Group. The updated system now supports advanced cutting tool materials as well as the latest ones used for today’s workpieces, thus providing a quick, easy and valuable reference guide.
