The Secomax cw100 line is meant for applications involving Inconel 718, Hastelloy, Waspaloy, MAR, Nimonic, Rene, Udimet and other HRSAsClick image to enlargeSeco Tools has expanded its Secomax CW100 line of ceramic insert grades for manufacturers working with heat-resistant superalloys (HRSA).

Featuring new geometries for whisker-reinforced ceramic, this line offers superior performance for challenging aerospace, oil and gas and power generation applications involving Inconel 718, Hastelloy, Waspaloy, MAR, Nimonic, Rene, Udimet and other HRSAs.

The expansion includes four new round insert formats with two geometries, E-01020 and T-01020, and four grooving insert geometries with widths of 3.175 mm (0.125-in.), 6.35 mm (0.25-in.) and 7.925 mm (0.312-in.).

The silicon-carbide whiskers, which use optimized micro geometries for wear resistance and strength, boost machining speeds in advanced HRSA materials and ensure stable and predictable tool life.
