Seco Perfomax new generation indexable insert drillClick image to enlarge

With a new re-engineered design, the Seco Perfomax indexable insert drill delivers higher drilling parameters and longer tool life as well as exceptional chip control and evacuation, says the company.

The drill’s innovative features include new flute designs with special anti-friction surfaces and laser hardened fronts for added strength, stability and accuracy. 

Perfomax flutes feature improved helix angles along with smoother chip flute exits and Seco’s engineered wave pattern that minimizes contact between chips and flute surfaces. The drill generates shorter chips that evacuate quickly and easily to significantly reduce the risk of chip jamming for higher application security. 

For up to 140 per cent longer drill body tool life, Seco laser hardens the fronts of Perfomax’s flutes. A hardness of HRC 60 allows the drill to withstand chip erosion for much longer periods of time. The re-engineered design of the Perfomax drill also features a bigger radius at the bottom of the drill’s insert pockets for added rigidity. 

In tandem with Perfomax, Seco’s DS2050 and DS4050 insert grades are especially well suited for heat resistant materials like titanium and titanium alloys. The grades enhance productivity and extend tool life thanks to recently developed free-cutting MP and MC geometries. DS2050 are inserts for periphery cutting, and DS4050 are those for center cutting. 

Perfomax drill bodies are available in diameters ranging 15 to 59 mm (0.594 to 2.375 in.) in length-to-diameter ratios of 2xD, 3xD, 4xD and 5xD, and in most spindle interfaces.
