New Seco Highfeed Cutters Deliver Increased Speeds and Feeds
Indexable-insert milling cutters feature new insert designs, more teeth per diameter
TROY, Mich. – Seco Tools, LLC recently expanded its Highfeed series of indexable-insert milling cutters to include the Highfeed 2 and 4. The latest cutters feature new insert designs combined with more teeth per diameter to achieve high speeds and feeds when processing hard and tough workpiece materials.
Dubbed the world’s smallest high-feed milling cutter with indexable inserts, Highfeed 2 is perfect for applications that require a high ramping angle or superior plunging performance. It features LP05 single-sided inserts with two cutting edges for cutter bodies that range from 0.5" to 0.75" in diameter.
Available in three different geometries (ME, M and MD), these positive LP inserts easily handle sticky materials such as stainless steels, titanium and super alloys.
Mounting types include Combimaster™ heads and cylindrical shanks. Highfeed 4 features LO06 double-sided inserts with four cutting edges for cutter bodies that range from 1.00" to 2.50" in diameter. Available in four different insert geometries (ME, M, MD and D), these close-pitch and negative-pocket LP inserts cost effectively machine common workpiece materials. Mounting types include Combimaster heads, cylindrical shanks and shell ends.
Seco designed both the Highfeed 2 and 4 cutters to significantly reduce vibrations for smooth, stable cutting and increased productivity. The cutters also efficiently evacuate chips for worry-free operation. Furthermore, Highfeed 2 and 4 cutters truly excel when processing challenging materials at high speeds on smaller machines with high-speed, low-torque spindles.
According to Seco, its Highfeed series of milling cutters, in general, permit up to three times faster machining than conventional methods. They provide shallow depths of cut with high feed per tooth rates to deliver greater metal removal rates for an overall boost in productivity.
