SECO TOOLS has expanded its line of square-shoulder milling cutters, notably for operations that demand superior surface finishes without high machine-power consumption. The new Double Turbo cutters improve roughing operations and reduce power consumption in steel, stainless steels, cast iron and high-temperature alloys with an advanced cutter geometry. For highest productivity, the tools use double-sided inserts with four cutting edges and state-of-the-art Seco Tools milling grades.
The Double Turbo addresses the needs of both job shops and mass production facilities. The system features a accurate geometry with the most positive-helix angle possible to reduce the likelihood of surface mismatches, and enable impressive 90-degree angle accuracy. With such precision, finishing cycle times are significantly shortened, or in some cases completely eliminate, according to the developer.
Double Turbo cutters are available in 19 metric variants ranging from diameter 40 mm to 125 mm and 16 inch variants ranging from 1.50 to 5 inches.
The ZOMX16 inserts have high, positive geometries for effective chip evacuation and reduced cutting forces. This will minimize vibration for extended tool life and smooth surface finishes. The double-sided design provides significant cost-per-edge savings. The ZOMX16 inserts include two geometries, ME10 and M12, and two radii, 0.8 and 1.6. Both PVD and Duratomic® CVD grades are available.
The Double Turbo square-shoulder cutter design uses materials and resources with greater efficiency, which will reduce of CO2 emissions, "for a more sustainable and responsible choice," Seco Tools noted.
