These easy-to-use and versatile square shoulder mills offer excellent price performance in general machining applications across a wide range of material groups from carbon steels to gray cast iron to stainless and super alloys in both wet and dry applications. Benefits include reduced inventory, lower cost per cutter, lower cost per part and fewer tool changes. “With this new solid carbide endmill range,” said Bill Bogue, Seco Jabro Product Manager, “We can now offer the Jabro quality and performance long experienced in niche-type applications to any shop that is looking to remove lots of material quickly -- be it mold & die, aerospace, medical, power generation, any industry.” Seco is offering the Solid2 in a JS510 easy-to-use series for all basic operations in steel, stainless, and cast irons and available in 2- 3-, and 4-fluted cutters for side milling and/or slotting. This series features an increased core diameter allowing larger cuts for reduced cycle times and costs. Also available is a higher performance JS550 series featuring double-core technology for added stability and reduced tool deflection, thus enabling higher cutting data. This series is available in 3- and 4-flute designs for slotting and side milling as well as featuring a differential pitch design for chatter-free machining. Both families are finished with a proprietary Siron-A coating and special edge preparation for smooth chip flow and longer tool life.
