Double Octomill – 16-cutting-edge, Double-sided Inserts
The Double Octomill face milling cutter is a highly versatile, economic and productive tool that can be used for both roughing and finishing.
With double-sided inserts featuring a total of 16 cutting edges, the cutter represents a combination of high performance with cost-effective operation. Double Octomill also has a coated, pre-hardened body to ensure long tool life by protecting the tool from wear and preventing chips from welding to it.
Cutters in the Double Octomill range are divided into three different pitches – normal, normal+, and close – to allow users to optimize productivity by perfectly matching the application with the machine tool. For example, if the machine has high power capability, the close pitch cutter is recommended. If the machine has limited power capability, choose the normal or normal+ pitch.
Additionally, Double Octomill is now available with a unique design that incorporates cassettes that accommodate Seco’s cost effective Double Octomill inserts. Modular and removable, the cassettes can be quickly and inexpensively replaced if damaged, avoiding the cost of replacing an entire cutter body. The cassettes use Seco’s advanced pin-locating technology to ensure fast, easy and precise insert positioning. Equally important, the cassette pockets allow adjustability to practically eliminate axial runout, while optimizing feed rates, surface finishes and tool life.
