TM1501, TM2501 and TM3501 cut austenitic stainless steel to high-alloyed, super-duplex stainless steelsClick image to enlargeSeco Tools has released new grades specifically for stainless steel turning featuring the company’s latest Duratomic and its Used-Edge Detection technology. 

The expanded range includes new geometries with chipbreakers optimized for finishing and medium-roughing applications in stainless steel.

The new TM grades TM1501, TM2501 and TM3501 cut austenitic stainless steel to high-alloyed, super-duplex stainless steels. 

TM1501 is designed for the highest level of speed, productivity and wear resistance in stable continuous cut applications for austenitic stainless steel components. 

TM2501 excels as a general grade that provides long tool life and toughness across the widest application area. 

TM3501 is a brand-new grade for the toughest high-alloyed stainless steels, including duplex and super-duplex stainless steels but offers good performance across all stainless steel applications.

The addition of the unique FF1 chipbreaker for the TM3501 grade provides superior chip control in stainless steel finishing, while the new MR3 and M3 complements MF4 and M5 in medium-roughing applications.
