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.
The two newly introduced PCD inserts work in all existing Turbo 10 cutter bodies. Both grades were desinged to excel in aluminium, but can also be used for other PCD applications, such as polymers and fibrereinforced polymers. Additionally, PCD05 can also be used for machining of titanium. Key applications for the PCD introductions include automotive and aerospace machining.
