Turbo 10 has been added to Secoâ€™s range of high-performance helical cutters, offering high feeds, large depth of cut and high metal removal rates in contouring and profiling applications. It can be used for slotting, pocketing and ramping as well as circular and helical milling. Helical Turbo 10 has better depth of cut capabilities than those of conventional square shoulder mills. The tool features insert pockets with improved precision and axial support, to minimise mismatch between insert levels. Inserts come in XOMX10T3 and XOEX10T3 versions with geometries giving low cutting forces. Helical Turbo 10 is available with Combimaster, Arbor, Seco-Capto, Weldon and Seco Weldon mounting systems.
TURBO 10 GEOMETRY EXPANSION FOR DIFFICULT TO MACHINE MATERIALS.
The 2011 launch of Turbo 10 for square shoulder milling is now followed by an insert range expansion that includes both direct pressed and ground insert alternatives. Direct pressed inserts get a larger radii range from 0.4 to 3.1 millimetre corner radii. The expansion of the ground insert range includes geometries for materials that are difficult to machine, such as aluminium, stainless steels, titanium alloys and other alloyed materials. The ground insert alternatives are available with radii ranging from 0.4 to 3.1 millimetre corner radii.
MINIMASTER PLUS ADDITIONS 速
NOW WITH HIGH FEED INSERTS.
Along with a few other improvements, the Minimaster Plus tool system has added a new line of inserts for highfeed machining to its collection of square shoulder, ball nose and multi-flute inserts. The high-feed inserts feature three flutes and are available in diameters from 10 to 16 millimetres. With an internal through coolant, best possible tool life is achieved as well as reliable chip evacuation. From now on all inserts will have a wrench tool grip, replacing the earlier hook key grip and the system has also been extended with shanks in cemented carbide for improved rigidity.
DISC MILLING CUTTER 335.25 WITH ADJUSTABLE CUTTING WIDTH.
Following the fixed pocket version, Secoâ€™s 335.25 disc milling cutter is now released in a version adjustable in width.

CBN010 GRADE NOW EVEN TOUGHER AND MORE WEAR RESISTANT.
CBN010 is a new uncoated PCBN (Polycrystalline Cubic Boron Nitride) grade mainly used for turning in hardened steels. It replaces CBN10 and CBN100 and has a more uniform microstructure with greater resistance to edge chipping, achieved by using newly developed manufacturing methods. Compared to its predecessors, CBN010 is tougher and has more wear resistance, resulting in increased reliability and tool life predictability. It is mainly intended for finishing and is available in four different insert formats: Solid, full face, tipped and multi-tipped formats, all including a number of wiper options.
PCBN CHIPBREAKER FOR IMPROVED CHIP CONTROL. Laser machining provides several benefits over conventional production technologies such as grinding; Laser technology meets the highest requirements regarding dimensional accuracy, geometrical precision and surface quality for the machining of intricate, three-dimensional geometries. These advantages and possibilities have led to a complex formed chipbreaker with â€œbumpsâ€? that would have been impossible to produce with any other production technology. This laser made chipbreaker gives you improved chip control leaving you with: & ]"!' + |+ # & ` " ! + + & Z + } ~ " reduce clean up time.
MAIN BENEFITS Normally in hard turning chip control is not a problem, chips generated during hard turning are brittle and will break even without a chipbreaker. If a conventional PCBN insert is used for machining softer (< 50 HRC) material, long uncut chips can be a problem. Secomaxâ„˘ PCBN chipbreaker inserts are recommended in applications where improved chip control is demanded e.g. when removing the case hardened layer, when machining from hard to soft material or in internal machining applications where chip evacuation can be a problem. 15
JABROâ„˘-HPM JHP951 30% HIGHER METAL REMOVAL RATE.
Secoâ€™s Jabro-HPM (high-performance machining) family of solid end mills welcomes two new members: JHP951 and JHP993. These are suitable for roughing applications such as full slotting with large axial cutting lengths (1.5 x Dc) and side milling in soft carbon and high alloy or high hardness steels as well as cast irons. JHP951, available in a diameter range from 3 to 25 millimetres with three to five teeth, is suitable for stable operating conditions. It has up to 30% higher material removal rate compared to the earlier JHP950, thanks to a curved helix, optimised number of teeth, uneven flute spacing and a special flute cavity design.
JABRO -HPM JHP993 FOR A SECURE ROUGHING PROCESS. ™
The new JHP993 is designed for complex roughing applications, for example unstable conditions when the workpiece is not completely solid or difficult to clamp. It comes in diameters from 4 to 25 millimetres with three to six teeth that, just like the shape of the flutes, are optimised for high-performance roughing. JHP993 is available with an internal “through” coolant channel that delivers significantly more coolant (30%) to the cutting zone compared to conventional coolant channels. This increases tool life and reduces the risk for uncontrolled wear, making it ideal for unmanned operations.
JABRO™ COMPOSITES - JC845 MACHINING LAMINATED CFRPs.
Seco’s new member in the Jabro™ Composites range dedicated for slotting and sidemilling of carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP) is specially designed to prevent and reduce delamination, pressure build up, and heat in the cutting zone. The 6% cobalt substrate results in excellent adhesion of the CVD DURA coating.
MAIN BENEFIT The combination of differential helix (left hand/right hand) and chipbreakers results in a small downward pressure on the workpiece guiding the vacuum clamping forces. The chipbreakers in the geometry result in several beneficial cutting/shearing conditions.
EPB 5672 HIGH PRECISION COLLET CHUCKS.
EPB 5672 is a new collet chuck system from Seco with a maximum radial run-out of only three microns. It offers two to three times the transmittable torque of previous collet chuck models, and even more than hydro-expanding chucks. Tools are fastened by tightening the nut with a dedicated torque roller wrench, which is an easy operation for the user. Due to its completely cylindrical shape (without any asymmetrical parts), EPB 5672 is suitable for high-speed machining that requires well-balanced tool assemblies. A chuck can be used with collets of different clamping diameters and for tool shank diameters from 1 to 20 millimetres. Moreover, sealed collets allow you to focus the coolant flow through the tool, without requiring an extra nut for the collet. 19

PCD DRILLS THE NEXT STEP FOR COMPOSITE MATERIALS.
With the new PCD drill ranges CX1 and CX2 Seco is taking the next step in the development of tools for machining composite materials. The new PCD technology improves tool life, productivity and hole quality (the special geometry prevents delamination and uncut fiber). This will give you high quality holes and reduce your machining time. The CX1 geometry reduces the need for extra work as delamination and uncut fiber is minimised, while the CX2 geometry is the best solution when drilling stacked material. The standard 30째 helix angle secures the
chip/dust evacuation. The sharpness and excellent dimensional tolerance, together with the cutting edges made of PCD, improve work piece quality in terms of surface finish and hole tolerances. The full potential and value of PCD drills over conventional drilling can be seen in enhanced productivity and tool life. For full cost efficiency, a reconditioning service is available for all Seco PCD tools. The CX1 and CX2 are available in stock standard range between 3,26 up to 9,53. Other dimensions are available on request.

JUMBO BRIDGE BARS NEXT GENERATION OF COOLANT DELIVERY.
The new generation of “Jumbo S” bridge bars feature coolant channels. The coolant flows from the spindle holder through the Jumbo and through the bridge bars to the cutting edges. This reliable and continuous coolant delivery positively influences the surface finish, chip flow and the insert life, while reducing thermal shocks. Other major improvements are that now the new “Jumbo S” allows higher cutting data thanks to an additional locking screw that increases the rigidity of the overall assembly.
