Seco has expanded its Highfeed series of indexable insert milling cutters to include Highfeed 2 and 4. The new cuttes feature new insert designs combined with more teeth per diameter to achieve high speeds and feeds when processing hard and tough workpiece materials.
Calling them the world’s smallest high feed milling cutter with indexable inserts, Highfeed 2 is for applications requiring a high ramping angle or superior plunging performance, says Seco. It features LP05 single-sided inserts with two cutting edges for cutter bodies that range from 12.7 to 19.05 mm (0.5 to 0.75 in.) in diameter. Available in three different geometries (ME, M and MD), these positive LP inserts easily handle sticky materials such as stainless steels, titanium and super alloys. Mounting types include CombimasterTM heads and cylindrical shanks.
Highfeed 4 features LO06 double-sided inserts with four cutting edges for cutter bodies that range from 25.4 to 63.5 mm (1.00 to 2.50 in.) in diameter. Available in four different insert geometries (ME, M, MD and D), these close pitch and negative pocket LP inserts cost effectively machine common workpiece materials. Mounting types include Combimaster heads, cylindrical shanks and shell ends.
Seco says both cutters reduce vibrations for smooth, stable cutting and increased productivity, and permit up to three times faster machining than conventional methods.
