MAKE ROOM FOR MORE STABILITY AND PRODUCTIVITY WITH SHORTER TOOLSMulti-tasking or mill-turn machine tools have tight machining envelopes with second spindles, tilting tables, live turrets and in-machine automation taking up space that makes using conventional tools difficult. Maximize your available space – and improve your tool life by 20-40% – with the JS550 Stub Series from Seco. Featuring proven high-performance solid end mill geometry that offers outstanding application versatility in steels, stainless steels, titanium and superalloys, the new shorter-length tools reduce overhang and minimize vibration to provide the highest possible tool life with the least edge waste and carbide usage.
MAKE ROOM FOR MORE STABILITY AND PRODUCTIVITY WITH SHORTER TOOLS
CNC multi-tasking or mill-turn machines are incredibly productive, game-changing technologies for shops – if you can work around the second spindles, turrets with live tooling stations and in-machine automation that can take up much of the available space inside the machine. Reclaim that space with the new JS550 Stub Series from Seco. Offering the popular JS550 geometry in a size ideal for tight machine envelopes, the Stub Series’ shorter length makes it simple for manufacturers to use the entire cutting edge, ensuring the highest level of stability while achieving 20-40% longer tool life compared to conventional solutions.
GET THE MOST VALUE OUT OF EVERY CM3 IN YOUR MULTI-TASKING MACHINE ENVELOPE
As highly automated jobs become more common in manufacturing, the single-setup machining possible with dual-spindle or spindle-turret multi-tasking equipment is essential to keeping up with the pace of production. The complex interiors of these machines, however, can constrain the use of conventional-length tools, requiring extra tool changes and spindle movement. With versatile, shorter-length tools such as the new JS550 Stub Series, it’s easy to apply everything from simple side milling to advanced roughing strategies at high-performance volume rates even in the tightest machining envelopes.
SECURE YOUR PROCESSES WITH THE FULLY PROVEN JS550 GEOMETRY
Materials such as steel, stainless steels, titanium and superalloys require tough, high-performance tools for optimal material removal rates. The Seco JS550 high-performance solid carbide end mills have delivered that performance, as well as the versatility to handle a wide range of applications and materials. With the JS550 Stub Series, the ideal grade and edge preparation for these materials is now available in a length that makes this flexible geometry even more widely applicable. For even greater stability in the toughest operations, the stub series has a new single-core configuration that ensures the tools maintain maximum application versatility.
32 metric sizes, available with cylindrical and Weldon shanks.

Lower tool costs
- Multi-tasking machines have tight machining envelopes that can require complicated toolpaths or multiple tool changes with standard-length tools.
- Wasted cutting edges and reduced tool life due to long tool overhang or reduced stability with higher volume/minute.
- The JS550 Stub Series offers proven geometries for ISO-P, M and S with a shorter length ideal for use in second spindles or live rotary milling turrets.
- The stub-length tools feature a shorter cutting length and single-core design to maximize edge usage and increase stability.
