MINIMASTER速 PLUS IS REACHING THE HIGHEST LEVEL OF PRECISION AND PRODUCTIVITY. THE SUCCESS CONTINUES Seco continues the success of Minimaster by launching the next generation. Once again showing the future direction of end mills with replaceable fluted inserts. SPEED? SURE! When a used Minimaster Plus insert is replaced with a new one, the axial and radial position remain the same for maximum precision. It is also possible to replace the insert without removing the shank from the holder or machine and re-measuring the whole assembly, speeding up the process considerably. COST EFFECTIVENESS? YOU GOT IT. You only pay for the replacement of the insert once it is worn out, instead of the complete tool (for example, HSS or solid end mill). Exchangeable inserts for different shanks allow for higher cutting data, thus avoiding regrinding and ensuring a consistent tool life.
MAXIMUM PERFORMANCE IN SQUARE SHOULDER MILLING
HIGH PERFORMANCE SQUARE SHOULDER MILLING CUTTERS Turbo10 is a new high performance cutting tool for square shoulder milling, with improved tool life and precision. This is achieved through optimised cutting properties that reduce heat generation and cutting forces, and a new insert geometry that mills corner angles to 90 degrees. Turbo10 is very flexible and suitable for most milling operations, including roughing, semi-finishing, finishing by slotting, contouring, helical interpolation and ramping. Initially it will be available in diameters from 16 to 100 mm with 0.4 and 0.8 mm insert radii, two geometries and eight insert grades. Turbo10 can be mounted with cylindrical shank, Weldon, arbor and Combimaster.
THE SQUARE 6 SUCCESS CONTINIUE WITH A LITTLE BROTHER. THE SQUARE 6 SUCCESS CONTINUES WITH A LITTLE BROTHER. Here is the smaller size of Square 6 for square shoulder milling, Seco is adding Square 6-04 which is covering the main machining depth of cut with maximum 4mm capability. Square6-04 is well suited for small and medium milling machines. The inserts have six cutting edges and when combined with the maximum number of inserts on each cutter dimension it results in improved cost-efficiency and increased productivity. HIGH PERFORMANCE WITH SQUARE6-04 And with two different pitches - same diameter, different number of teeth - Square 6 gives the same high performance on a wide range of materials, operations and machining conditions. The 90째 setting angle ensures a true 90째 square in one operation, saving valuable production time.
FIRST STEP OF NEXT GENERATION SOLUTIONS FOR HIGH FEED APPLICATIONS WITH PEAK PERFORMANCE AND RELIABILITY
EVEN FASTER WITH THIS NEW GENERATION Highfeed2 is a new range of small diameter high feed tools, intended for very high productivity in modern CNC machines. Highfeed2 enables a combination of strength and number of teeth versus diameter for maximum metal removal rate. The close pitch allows very fast feed rates and stable cutting performance even in very interrupted cuts. The “well balanced design” of both body and inserts gives free chip flow when copy milling in cavities, particularly when using tool holders with long overhang. Designed for very high feed rates with low depth of cut, Highfeed2 is available from diameter 16 to 35 mm and relevant imperial sizes with comprehensive insert grades and geometries to cover a wide spectrum of materials including superalloys.

With the new TK grades that’s exactly what you can do. The general application cast iron grade was designed for long tool life in various CIs, effectively reducing the number of grades needed in cast iron applications. DURATOMIC DOES IT AGAIN Decrease your cost per part with longer tool life due to the Duratomic coating. It offers superior wear resistance saving you money and increasing productivity.
M5 CHIPBREAKER ROBUST CHIPBREAKER FOR HIGHEST DEGREE OF EFFICIENCY
A STRONG GEOMETRY FOR HIGH METAL REMOVAL When productivity and strength is an issue then the rigid centre lock geometry M5 is the proper choice. This robust insert with its highly protected chip groove tackles the most demanding operations, heavy interruptions and rough skin successfully. An open chip groove with welladapted cutting angles ensures high feed rates and large cuts for efficient machining and best economy. Ductile materials can easily be handled with full control by the finetuned chip groove design. For obtaining optimal tool life in a variety of materials the balanced rake face minimizes the heat transferred to the insert. M5 is the unsurpassable geometry for a great variety of workpiece materials such as steel, stainless steel, cast iron and troublesome superalloys. Positive centre lock inserts are available in a wide range of chipbreakers to cover most materials and applications, F1, MF2, F2 and M3 are the foundation. The new M5 will complement these as the strongest geometry for the most testing environments and the heaviest applications.
FF2 CHIPBREAKER A GEOMETRY FOR FINISHING WHERE STRICT CHIP CONTROL IS A PRIORITY
A CHIP FORMER FOR SUPERIOR PERFORMANCE IN DUCTILE MATERIALS Chip control is highly important in modern production where less manned supervision is present. Selecting the FF2 geometry in negative insert style can prevent machining stops caused by unbroken chips which are hard to evacuate from the machine. An even more undesirable situation is when the uncontrolled swarf sticks to the cutting tool or the component causing sudden tool failures or poor part quality. The very tight, narrow chip groove of FF2 curls the chips firmly against the insert or component and compels them to break into easy-handled size. Even if the mechanical maneuvering of the chips is intensive the well-balanced design of the chip groove minimizes the cutting forces and reduces the heat transferred to the insert. When less heat is transferred tool life is improved. Low cutting forces generated by the insert enable operations to be performed in unstable set-ups and in thin-walled components. FF2 is an excellent complement to the existing FF1 and MF2 offering excellent opportunities in the finishing of ductile materials, steels and stainless steels.

PCD SOLUTIONS FOR COMPOSITE MACHINING
PCD SOLUTIONS PCD CHARACTERISTICS
PCD tools for thermosetting plastics and thermoplastics are characterized by five important features. These are;
The very sharp cutting edge compared to a CVD Dura coated tool allows a PCD tool to perform consistently and securely. This means that the workpiece will have equal surface finish showing no or minimum delamination. The narrow manufacturing tolerances make the process stable, predictable and repeatable.
1. Sharpness of the polycrystalline diamond results in an improved surface finish, a good fibre cut and low heat generation. These benefits minimize uncut fibres and delamination, increase productivity and improve process security 2. Hardness of the polycrystalline diamond makes the tools more wear resistant and increases the tool life 3. The accuracy of the PCD tools results in close dimensional tolerances increasing the reliability, allowing you to reduce finishing operations 4. The thermal conductivity of the polycrystalline material lowers process temperatures which enhances product stability and allows higher cutting speeds. 5. After-sales services: re-conditioning results in a new tool that increases tool life and reduces tool costs

JABRO™- COMPOSITES JPD890 SERIES
SECO FEEDMAX PCD DRILLS
Optimized PCD milling geometry for composite materials The complete range of Jabro PCD cutters have a special PCD Blade design that improves the thermal wear resistance. This design allows a higher feed rate because of its resistance to cutting force effects. By offering 3 versions of shear angle the direction to guide the cutting forces can be chosen. Conventional
The new range of PCD drills have a special 120° drill point design that can be used in various applications. In addition, customized tools are available upon request. For example: chamfer drills, double point…
PERFORMANCE INCREASE Internal through coolant channels All standard PCD milling tools are equipped with two through coolant channels. By applying through coolant emulsion the cutting temperature can be reduced. A lowered process temperature reduces the risk of melting resin and allows an increase in cutting speed in comparison to PCD tools without through coolant channels.
PERFORMANCE INCREASE One of the strongest benefits with PCD drills is their ability to cut for long periods of time without needing replacement. The stock standard PCD drills are without coolant holes. The standard 30° helix angle secures the chip/dust evacuation. The sharpness and the excellent dimensional tolerance of a PCD tool improves workpiece quality in terms of surface finish and hole tolerances. Resulting in long tool life and an increased yield. The full potential and value of PCD drills over conventional drilling can be seen in enhanced productivity and tool life. For full cost efficiency when using PCD tools, a reconditioning service is available for all Seco PCD tools.
