Seco Tools Double Quattromill 14Click image to enlarge

Seco Tools has introduced the Double Quattromill 14 face milling cutter.

The new cutter uses double sided inserts with eight cutting edges and represents a smaller version of the company's Double Quattromill 22 cutter, which targets those machines with higher horsepower and torque. the Double Quattromill 14 offers increased depths of cut in roughing, semifinishing and finishing.

The Double Quattromill 14 achieve depths of cut up to 0.236" (6mm) in its 45° lead angle version and up to 0.315" (8mm) in its 68° version. For better chip thinning and higher feed rates, the 45° angle excels in weak or unstable fixturing. With better clearance to avoid sidewalls or part fixturing than the 45° degree angle, the 68° angle reaches high depths of cut with the same size inscribed circle (I.C.) on the insert. The Double Quattromill 14 extends tool life while lowering cutting forces and machine power consumption with its extremely free cutting qualities.

Available in standard or close pitch and in metric or inch versions, Double Quattromill 14 cutter bodies come in fixed pocket and cassette styles. For enhanced chip control and evacuation as well as durability, Seco applied its new surface texture technology to the cutter's body flute surfaces.

To provide flexible options, the Double Quattromill 14 comes in three insert ranges with various edges and grades. The ME10 geometry works with sticky materials such as titanium and stainless steel. The M10 geometry includes sharper edges and smaller T lands for reduced cutting force at lower horsepower levels, working with sticky materials, some tool steels and super alloys. The M16 provides the best edge protection of the three insert geometries when machining abrasive materials such as steels, tool steels and cast irons.

Trim flap discs boost stock removal, service life

Polifan PSF Z-TRIM flap discs feature composite backing that can be trimmed to extend service life and reduce time consuming disc changes on steel and stainless steel (INOX) applications.


Pferd has introduced the Polifan PSF Z-TRIM flap disc. These versatile new universal flap discs have a lightweight composite backing that can be trimmed to extend service life, enhance surface finish and reduce time consuming disc changes. The composite backer and flap arrangement help reduce vibration and noise levels. Produced with a higher density of zirconia coated material (Zirconia alumina Z) than standard PSF flap discs, these discs provide long service life, an improved surface finish, and a soft, cushioned, contamination-free grinding effect in applications ranging from surface grinding, weld grinding, blending, chamfering, and deburring on steel and stainless steel (INOX).

Their premium zirconia self-sharpening abrasive grain produces high stock removal rates throughout the life of the disc, along with a long service life. In addition, the high-density flap arrangement, with an increased amount of coated material vs. conventional flap arrangement, facilitates reduced vibration and noise levels, along with flexible grinding action and superior results on irregular shapes. 

The Polifan PSF Z-TRIM trimmable flap discs provide superior stock removal, service life and surface finish

The PSF Z-TRIM flap discs perform on all power outputs, though high-powered angle grinders will achieve optimal results. They are available in 4 ½ in. and 5 in. diameter with either a 7/8 in. plain arbor hole, or a 5/8-11 thread for threaded spindles, in grit sizes of 40, 60, and 80. The 5/8-11 thread quick-change version is made with a zinc hub..
