Seco disc mill inserts and cutter bodies Click image to enlarge

Seco Tools has expanded its range of disc milling inserts and cutter bodies.

Recent additions include the 335.14 small diameter exchangeable head system, 335.16 cutter for T-slot operations and cassette versions of the 335.25 cutter that incorporate round inserts.

Using small diameter exchangeable carbide heads, the 335.14 offers a versatile, precise cutting profile that easily tackles any type of material. These cutters are ideal for groove milling, circlip grooves, full radius profiles, threading profiles and chamfering.

Reliable exchangeable head systems help control machining costs, and the 335.14 product line comes in a wide variety of cylindrical and integrated collet chuck shanks in diameters from 0.380" (9.7 mm) to 1.370" (34.7 mm) that cut widths from 0.030" (0.74 mm) to 0.207" (5.26 mm).

Seco’s highly stable 335.16 cutters incorporate four-edged inserts to economically perform demanding T-slot operations. Modern insert geometries reduce machining forces and noise for optimum tool life. Centralized cooling channels effectively remove chips and provide excellent surface finishes and finished part quality. Cutters come in diameters from 0.970" (25 mm) to 1.844" (50 mm) based on standardized T-slot dimensions. The expansive selection of insert geometries and grades cut many materials in widths ranging from 0.390" (11 mm) to 0.820" (21 mm).

The expanded line of 335.25 disc mill cutters now includes new cassettes for 0.630" (16-mm) and 0.790" (20 mm) round insert diameters. These cutters perform well in various full side, face or half side and face milling operations for applications involving corner radii. The exchangeable cassettes provide long, reliable cutter performance, while the large choice of free-cutting insert geometries and grades boost cost-efficiency in any type of material. Cutter diameters for these new sizes range from 4.000" (100 mm) to 12.000" (315 mm).
