Seco Tools Enhances Turbo Family of Milling Cutters with New Coating



Troy, Mich., - Seco Tools has enhanced the performance of its entire Turbo Mill family of square shoulder milling cutters through a new nickel-based surface coating that approaches HV700 on the pre-hardened cutter bodies for longer life, better tolerances and a more durable surface. For the user, this translates into increased reliability, higher precision machining and better chip evacuation and control.

Seco's Turbo Mill offering is a comprehensive and versatile square shoulder milling product line that can slot, ramp, contour, plunge, pocket mill and perform both circular and helical interpolation. There is a choice of 13 carbide grades, three PCD tipped grades and five geometries suited for a variety of materials including steel, stainless steel, cast iron, hardened materials, high-temperature alloys and non-ferrous materials. Turbo's unique inserts feature an optimized edge, advanced helix angle, large wiper flat and a strong, highly-positive rake angle to allow high productivity.

Available Turbo products include:

  • Nano Turbo in 3/8" - 1.5" diameters (10 mm - 40 mm), offering a perfect alternative to both HSS and solid carbide,

  • Micro Turbo in ½" - 3.0" diameters (12mm - 100mm) for light duty, high precision applications,

  • Super Turbo in ¾" - 10" diameters (20 - 250mm) is the number one first choice for general purpose square-shoulder milling applications in a wide range of materials and applications; and

  • Power Turbo in 1.0" - 10" diameters (32mm - 250mm) for heavy duty, maximum metal-removal applications.

    Combimaster interchangeable heads are available for all Turbo sizes. For live spindle machines, Capto adapters for Combimaster heads are available to further extend the flexibility of this tool system. Close and coarse pitch version cutters are also available.
