Seco Highlights End Mill for High-Feed Milling Strategies at IMTS

TROY, Mich., September 10, 2018 – A recently released solid-carbide end mill from Seco Tools – the Jabro®-HFM JHF181 – took center stage in the company’s booth at IMTS 2018. An excellent choice for high-feed milling strategies in hardened steels and nickel-based alloys, the end mill significantly boosts metal removal rates and offers exceptionally long tool life.

As the latest member in the Seco high-feed family, the new Jabro-HFM JHF181 offers the same performance as other Seco high-feed tooling solutions as well as increases metal removal rates by up to 30 percent over traditional methods. Featuring the company’s new HXT coating, the JHF181 gains a hard layer that delivers advanced thermal protection and high wear resistance.

The JHF181 is especially effective at machining complex parts that require long tool overhangs and a mix of multiple axial and radial machining operations. It also provides up to 30 percent more tool life than other comparable solid-carbide end mills when processing ISO H materials.

The JHF181 is available in 2-, 4- or 5-flute options with cutting diameters from 0.0787" (2 mm) to 0.6299" (16 mm) and length options ranging from 2xD to 7xD. This end mill also has through-tool coolant capability for diameters from 0.2362" (6 mm) to 0.4724" (12mm.)
