Seco Tools, Inc. (Warren, MI) will be displaying its new line of round insert cutters suitable for roughing and semi-finishing in face and copy milling applications. The new cutters feature an extremely hard nickel coating (700+ Vickers) on the cutter body, which increases protection from chip wear, offers longer tool life and aids in chip evacuation. Additionally, the cutter bodies for the 10, 12 and 16 mm diameter inserts have been re-designed to improve the axial support in the pocket seat and provide stronger lock reserve. These changes deliver higher reliability in the form of reduced risk of insert and/or pocket seat breakage. The new 10, 12 and 16 mm inserts feature a round anvil shape and shorter anvil height to provide additional stability and allow for more cutting edges. This design change also ensures secure locking of the insert, preventing it from tilting and damaging the pocket seat. The cutters are strong and versatile enough to handle many applications including circular interpolation, helical interpolation ramping, side milling, slot milling, plunging and ramping. Featuring a range of insert geometries, the new round cutters can handle light cutting to the most difficult machining in a variety of materials. Inserts range in size from 6 to 20mm I.C. diameter with tool bodies available in Weldon shank or shell mill style for each. Selected cutters also can be supplied with high-density, vibration-damping shanks or the flexible Combimaster connection for maximum value.
