Seco Tools Introduces CW100 Ceramic Insert Grades
Troy, MI, September 16, 2020 – For manufacturers seeking solutions to unpredictable tool life and slow rough-machining speeds when working with heat-resistant superalloys (HRSA), Seco Tools has expanded its line of highly productive Secomax™ CW100 ceramic insert grade. Featuring new geometries for whisker-reinforced ceramic, this line of ceramic solutions offers superior performance for challenging aerospace, oil and gas and power generation applications involving Inconel 718, Hastelloy, Waspaloy, MAR, Nimonic, Rene, Udimet and other HRSAs.
The CW100 grade expansion encompasses four new round insert formats with two geometries, E-01020 and T-01020, and four grooving insert geometries with widths of 3.175 mm (0.125”), 6.35 mm (0.25”) and 7.925 mm (0.312”). An aluminium-oxide-based grade with silicon-carbide whiskers (Al2O3-SiC), the Secomax™ CW100 grade not only boosts machining speeds in advanced HRSA materials, but it ensures stable and predictable tool life for the lowest possible cost per part thanks to the silicon-carbide whiskers, which use optimized micro geometries for the utmost in ceramic wear resistance and strength.
