Seco Tools Adds Turbo 16 Square Shoulder Cutter to the Industry-Leading Turbo Portfolio

Troy, MI, November 3, 2020 – With ever-increasing pressure to increase productivity and keep machining costs down, secure processes and long tool life have never been more important. The new Turbo 16 from Seco Tools is a game-changer on both counts.

Thanks to an impressive list of optimized features, the cutter generates exceptional tool performance across a broad range of applications and materials. A smooth cutting action and low cutting forces mean reduced power consumption and tool wear — tool life can actually be boosted by up to 130%. 

Turbo 16 also scores highly on productivity — its exceptionally close pitch on selected cutters significantly increases material removal rates by up to 50%. A comprehensive range of ground and direct pressed inserts give the Turbo 16 exceptional flexibility. The corrosion-resistant tool steel cutter bodies have internal coolant channels at every size, ranging from 25 mm to 250 mm (the imperial program covers diameters 1 to 6 inches). They are compatible with a wide range of interfaces and standard rotating holders.

Built for the future of manufacturing, Turbo 16 inserts are the first Seco Tools products to feature Data Matrix tags. These scannable codes store product and batch information, and can be read by the new Seco Assistant smartphone app.
