HQ IMG Discmill Cutters Group ImageClick image to enlargeThe 335.18 and 335.19 disc mill cutter bodies from Seco Tools outperform high-speed steel alternatives, especially in tough materials like sticky stainless steel, titanium and superalloys.

Close-pitch insert pockets improve stability and productivity, while plug-and-play internal coolant system further ensures the highest tool life and superior chip control. The corrosion-resistant cutter body accepts indexable inserts with four cutting edges.

Designed for slotting operations between 4-12 mm and cutting-off operations from 4-8 mm, the 335.18 and 335.19 cutters are available in metric diameters ranging from 32 mm to 125 mm. Inch diameters range from 1.25" to 4" with widths from 0.156" to 0.50". Inserts for these cutters are available with the full range of grades, edge geometries and corner radii (0.2-6.0 mm, 0.008"-0.236"). For the greatest flexibility and ease of use, as well as superior radial and axial reach, the 335.18 and 335.19 cutters utilize modular Combimaster connections.
