Seco Tools presents the Turbo 16 square shoulder cutter to its Turbo portfolio to acknowledge secure processes and long tool life, two characteristics the company says that have not experienced high importance in the cutting tools category.
With optimized features, the cutter generates exceptional tool performance across a broad range of applications and materials. A smooth cutting action and low cutting forces reduces power consumption and tool wear, boosting tool life by up to 130%.
Turbo 16 also offers an exceptionally close pitch on selected cutters, improving overall productivity and increasing material removal rates by up to 50%. Flexibility is achieved via a comprehensive range of ground and direct pressed inserts. The corrosion-resistant tool steel cutter bodies have internal coolant channels at every size, ranging from 25 mm to 250 mm (the imperial program covers diameters from 1 to 6 inches), which are compatible with a wide range of interfaces and standard rotating holders.
Further, Turbo 16 inserts are said to be the first Seco Tools products to feature Data Matrix tags. These scannable codes store product and batch information, and can be read by the new Seco Assistant smartphone app.
