Seco adds Steadyline™ technology to Combimaster toolholders
4/8/2014 3:00:00 PM

Fagersta, April 2014 – With the release of the Steadyline Combimaster, Seco has expanded its successful Combimaster family of toolholding for medium-sized milling applications to include state-of-the-art vibration damping technology. This will allow the family of Combimaster cutters to be used in a wider variety of applications, specifically those requiring long overhangs or unstable set-ups.

Combimaster’s success in the market results largely from the flexibility it affords manufacturers. The system makes it easy to change between cutters, and accommodates square shoulder mills, end mills, face mills, copy mills, plunge mills and disc mills.

Steadyline incorporates a dynamic damping system that automatically counteracts and eliminates tool vibration. This proves especially valuable for applications that feature long overhangs, where the system can greatly increase tool life and process security. Eliminating vibration also allow more aggressive cutting data to be applied, reducing machining times by as much as 50%.

Steadyline Combimaster holders are available in a variety of lengths and diameters. Type EPB K820 is tapered to achieve a balance of rigidity and workpiece accessibility, while type EPB K821 incorporates a cylindrical design ideal for machining more difficult-to-access features.
