Seco-Carboloy Expands Minimaster Product Line For Increased Plunging and Copy Milling Capability
Warren, Mich., July 21, 2003 -- Seco-Carboloy has expanded its versatile and productive Minimaster family to include a new three-flute ballnose cutter, double angled chamfering inserts, plunge milling inserts and new carbide grades for longer tool life.
The new three-flute ballnose for copy milling provides five times the metal removal rate of conventional high-speed steel cutters. Three cutting edges and optimal combinations of geometries and grades - plus a generous supply or coolant through the internal coolant holes - allow these cutters to maintain high productivity in the majority of operations.
PCBN inserts are also available to suit high-speed roughing and finishing as well as plunge milling.
The Minimaster System
Designed for machine diameters ranging from .250 to .750 in. (6-20 mm), Minimaster offers 600 or more possible combinations. It's a versatile and stable tooling system with replaceable carbide inserts for slotting, square-shoulder milling, drilling, center drilling, chamfering, and copying. A patented clamping system, where an indexable carbide insert is mounted in a shank, allows quick and easy changing of inserts right on the machine. Minimaster excels at operations that require smaller endmills with good accessibility, such as circular and helical interpolation, ramping, plunge milling, center drilling and chamfering.
