New Seco Highfeed Cutter Boosts Material Removal Rates in a Wide Range of Materials
9/6/2016 5:00:00 PM

Fagersta, September 2016 — Seco Tools has expanded its solutions for achieving high performance and long tool life with the introduction of the Highfeed 6—the latest addition to the Highfeed series of indexable-insert milling cutters. This new cutter features a design created specifically to boost material removal rates and handle high chip loads, resulting in substantial productivity increases and exceptional tool life.

The Highfeed 6 milling cutter offers exceptional performance in steels and cast irons, making it particularly valuable to the mold and die segment. It can also be applied to a variety of difficult-to-machine materials from stainless steel to heat-resistant superalloys. The tool performs equally well in all high feed applications, including face milling, slotting, contouring, plunging and helical interpolation. The large-diameter cutter bodies are capable of 1.8 mm (0.070”) axial depths of cut and feature double-sided inserts with six cutting edges for unsurpassed material removal and low operating costs.

Highfeed 6 inserts mount at low lead angles to direct machining forces up into the machine tool spindle rather than radially against the side of the tool. As such, the tool experiences less vibration and provides long, predictable performance.
The flexible Highfeed 6 is available in 13 metric cutters with outer diameters from 50 mm to 160 mm and nine imperial cutters ranging from 2 to 4 inches in diameter, as well as both normal and close-pitch versions. Inserts are available in three cutting geometries. A wide variety of advanced grade and coating options are available.
