Secomax™ CS100

High performance ceramic inserts for superalloys

CS100

Reduce your cycle times
and costs
CS100 ceramic grade offers
excellent rough machining of
nickel-based superalloys,
including Inconel, MAR,
RENE, Nimonic and
Waspaloy, all of which are
common to the aerospace segment.
The new ceramic grade
complements Seco’s PCBN
and carbide grades that are
used for finish machining
these challenging materials.
CS100 reduces machining
time and increases productivity
by allowing for higher
cutting speeds. The grade’s
high abrasion resistance and
superior toughness result in
consistently longer tool life
and less tool changes. This
decreases cost per part and
improves your overall performance.

SECOMAX™ CS100 INSERTS (T-PREP) & CERAMIC-INSERT TOOLHOLDERS

Seco’s CS100 line of sialon ceramic grade inserts now covers a wider range of applications with the introduction of a T-prep style insert. While existing CS100 inserts have S-style edge preparations (edge hone and chamfer), the newly added T-prep applies only a chamfer. This gives the insert a much sharper cutting edge and makes it well suited for unstable applications.
