Seco's latest product introduction is the recently launched Minimaster Plus for demanding milling applications in steel, aluminum and difficult-to-machine materials.

Also displayed will be Seco's MM4500 new milling grade for tough applications as well as the Jabro JHP 770 and JHP 780 solid carbide end mills.

The Minimaster Plus replaceable tip milling system is a highly productive, precision-focused product that makes tool-length re-measurement a thing of the past. It offers a large selection of shanks and inserts for a multitude of applications. Twenty-four versions of the shank are available, along with square shoulder and ball nose inserts that have through-tool coolant on all two and three flute designs. The inserts come in two grades for machining all types of materials and E- and M-geometries for a smooth cutting design. Insert diameters range from 0.375” to 0.625”, and corner radii are available from 0.0157 in. to 0.122 in. to match a variety of design requirements.

While optimized for cutting duplex stainless steel, Seco's MM4500 has the necessary properties to machine a wide range of materials such as Inconel and titanium alloys. In fact, this tough insert provides reliable wear and works great in unstable conditions where there are long overhangs, interrupted cuts or vibrations. Additionally, this grade is excellent at low to moderate temperatures and performs with or without coolant.

As two new geometries in Seco's High Performance Machining (HPM) product family, the Jabro JHP 770 and JHP 780 offer a high metal removal rates with secure and chatter-free machining in roughing applications. The JHP 770 is designed for machining in titanium, while the JHP 780 performs exceptionally on heat resistant superalloys typically found in aerospace components.

Seco Tools

Modig, Seco sign development partnership

Modig Machine Tool, Virserum, Sweden, has signed a multi-year agreement with Seco Tools, Fagersta, Sweden, for development of next generation machine tools. 

Automation cell for turning centers

Index has announced that its iXcenter automation cell is now available with its C Series turning centers.

Cutter cartridges for larger workpieces

Walter has expanded its milling program with additions that allow the universal, square system inserts of its M4000 milling line to be used in its F2010 program.

Improved square shoulder milling

Seco has released another advancement for the square shoulder milling process with its new Turbo 10 cutting tool for most roughing, semi-finishing and finishing operations. The cutter offers improved tool life and precision by optimizing cutting properties that reduce heat generation and cutting forces.

Cast iron insert grades

Walter has added two new cast iron insert grades to its Perform Line family of turning tools, the WKV10 and WKV20.

New cutting technologies help to overcome machining challenges

Coolant hole for high pressure internal coolant supply

Tungaloy Corp. has expanded its EasyMultiCut with EGP-CHP blade and the CTBU-CHP block, both of which have a coolant hole for high pressure internal coolant supply.

Cutting tools optimized for digital machining

The digitization of manufacturing – a key element of Industry 4.0 - is redefining production methods and the metalworking industry is taking note, despite its characteristic traditionalism. Metalworkers have started to adapt to this new environment by building or overhauling systems to facilitate more efficient processes.

Large capacity milling-turning centre

The Hyperturn 200 Powermill milling-turning centre from Emco is designed for complete precision machining of large workpieces up to 1,000 mm in turning diameter and for lengths up to 6,000 mm, workpiece weight of 1,500 kg in the chuck, and up to 6,000 kg between the chuck and the tailstock.

5 axis universal machining centre series

The G series five axis universal machining centre from Grob encompasses three models: G350, G550 and G750 (there are also two turning versions G550T and G750T). 

Indexable cutters

BIG Kaiser Precision Tooling Inc. has two new indexable cutters: R-Cutter (Pat. P) and BF-Cutter from BIG Daishowa.
