Reduce tooling inventories Tackle challenging applications with new High Feed SP milling systems
Milling challenging materials like tough steels, stainless steels, superalloys and titanium cause built-up or notched edges and broken inserts that increase tooling costs and cause unexpected downtime. To overcome these challenging ISO P, M and S materials, Seco developed the new next-generation High Feed SP milling system.
The new High Feed SP milling system from Seco features a combination of dedicated cutting geometries and insert grades, as well as optimised lead angles, that combine to boost material removal rates, maximise chip evacuation and extend tool life.
One High Feed SP tool handles a complete range of high feed milling operations and materials. The tool optimises such operations as copy milling, ramping, pocketing, face milling and plunging to further reduce tooling inventories. Users optimise milling performance while eliminating the need to switch among numerous tools to implement various machining strategies and part materials.
“Premature tool wear increases job costs and leads to unexpected machine downtime that lengthens production time,” said Benoît Patriarca, Global Product Manager High Feed Milling at Seco Tools. “The combination of dedicated cutting geometries and grades with optimized leading angles of the High Feed SP system allow for faster machining to shorten job turnaround times, while also providing a superior price-to-performance ratio.”
Designed for ease of use, the robust High Feed SP milling tools provide simple foolproof insert indexing that prevents operator mistakes, unexpected machine downtime and scrapped parts. Plus, users can quickly access product information through the Seco data matrix code scanning.
