Seco: replaceable tip milling system
- October 13, 2011
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.
