Seco Tools cutter and inserts

Seco Tools has expanded its line of square shoulder milling cutters with the Double Turbo, which includes the cutter and inserts. Utilizing double-sided ZOMX16 inserts with four cutting edges and Seco Tools milling grades, the cutters improve roughing operations and reduce power consumption in steel, stainless steels, cast iron and high-temperature alloys to meet the needs of job shops—like mold builders— and mass production facilities.

The Double Turbo system features a highly accurate geometry with the most positive helix angle possible, reducing the likelihood of surface mismatches and enabling 90-degree angle accuracy for a significantly shortened—and sometimes, completely eliminated—finishing cycle time. Double Turbo cutters are available in 19 metric variants, ranging from a 40 millimeter diameter to 125 millimeter diameter, and 16-inch variants ranging from 1.50to five inches.

Additionally, ZOMX16 inserts are said to offer high, positive geometries for effective chip evacuation and reduced cutting forces, minimizing vibrations for extended tool life and smooth surface finishes. Seco Tools says the double-sided design provides significant cost-per-edge savings. The ZOMX16 inserts include two geometries, ME10 and M12, and two radii, 0.8 and 1.6. Both PVD and Duratomic CVD grades are available.
