Original Press Release:

Seco Debuts Strong, Durable Double QuattroMILL 22 Face Mill Cutter at IMTS

TROY, Mich., September 10, 2018 – Seco introduced the new Double Quattromill® 22 face milling cutter for roughing and semi-finishing at IMTS 2018. The strong, durable cutter allows manufacturers to cost-effectively take full advantage of their machine tool’s milling power through eight multi-edge insert cutting edges and large depths-of-cut.

Unlike other double-sided inserts, the Double Quattromill 22 inserts actually lower cutting forces/machine power consumption and thus ensure workpiece stability. The inserts feature high-axial rake angles that not only make them free cutting but also give them longer tool life and more versatility for a wider range of part materials. Plus, new Seco surface texture technology applied to the cutter body flute surfaces enhances chip control and evacuation as well as longer maintained tool surface appearance and durability.

The Double Quattromill 22 is offered in two versions. A 45° lead angle version enables depths-of-cut up to 0.350" (9 mm). The 45° lead angle provides a combination of lower cutting forces, less power consumption, higher feed rates and exceptional chip thinning. A 68° cutter version enables depths-of-cut as deep as 0.430" (11 mm) and is recommended when the application calls for milling close to a wall or part fixture.

Double Quattromill 22 inserts also feature wiper flats, and the 45° lead angle types come in three geometries. These include a highly sharp geometry for stainless steels, titaniums and other sticky materials; a universal type for steels to cast irons and superalloys; and one for steels, in particular tool steels from P6 to P11, and cast iron.

For additional cost effectiveness, Double Quattromill 22 cutter bodies come in either fixed pocket or cassette versions for larger diameters from 7.870" to 12.400" (200 mm to 315 mm).
