Seco QC Modular ToolholderClick image to enlargeSeco Tools has introduced a modular toolholder system for manufacturers seeking to improve their productivity with Swiss-type machining. The system enables fast, easy and repeatable insert indexing and tool changes outside of tight machine work spaces.

The QC (Quick-Change) toolholders also feature Seco Jetstream Tooling and Jetstream Tooling Duo technology for optimal chip control, high-quality surface finishes and extended tool life.

The toolholder allows users to remove both cutting heads and inserts as a single assembly, quickly index them and reinstall. Manufacturers may also use this system to exchange cutting heads and inserts with a second set for even greater efficiency. The QC cutting head also features double carbide pins for accurate, consistent and secure insert mounting and indexing.

Seco Jetstream Tooling technology precisely directs high-pressure coolant through the QC Toolholder to the cutting zone. Seco Jetstream Tooling Duo, available on a selection of cutting heads, adds a second coolant channel to the underside of the holder. The second coolant channel can be switched off if needed for even more versatile machining.
