New Duratomic® TP2501

Integrated with “SECO-EDGE INTELLIGENCE” and featured with “used edge detection”.

The new Duratomic TP2501 is the first choice CVD grade where versatility is needed and working conditions are not perfect.

TP2501 maximises the manufacturing output under the most varying demands on productivity, cutting data and machinability on various materials.

A very significant share of steel turning applications feature working conditions that demand TP2501’s grade design and properties. 


TP2501, the first-choice steel grade offers the broadest working range and is the “go-to” insert for most customers. It is also often the general starting point for then selecting the other grades to further optimise specific operations.
With increased wear-resistance and better toughness behaviour, the TP2501 grade reduces variations in tool life and delivers predictable and consistent performance. Ideal applications include those from general-purpose continuous-machining operations to more demanding ones such as those involving rather heavy interrupted cuts. 
For even more versatility, Seco designed this grade to run either with or without coolant.
The Grade chain provides a complete range for the whole steel turning area.
TP0501 - the high speed productivity especially for higher alloy steels. 
TP1501 -  the competent and  balanced productivity especially for low alloy steels
TP2501 - the king of versatality. 
TP3500 - the secure choice.

Features & Benefits

  1. Seco edge intelligence – Widely applicable versatile productivity & security in steels
  2. Used-edge detection capability – Clear indication of used edge even in light finish-machining passes.
  3. Duratomic technology – Superior wear & secure edge toughness : Longer tool life & secure productivity
  4. Broad working ranges - High material removal rate, productivity & versatile security.
Seco has worked since 2007 to refine its industry-leading Duratomic technology giving the new TP0501, TP1501 & TP2501 turning grades which provide a balance between properties such as wear resistance, speed capabilities and toughness behaviours. Their design feature improvements make them applicable to both roughing and finishing operations while significantly boosting lowest-level peak-performance ratings over previous insert grades.
