High quality precision engineering demands premium tools. At Seco® we understand the speciﬁc challenges of the power generation industry and we have the know-how to keep your production at the leading edge.
We provide optimized machining solutions and cutting tools for your speciﬁc requirements. Seco® technology is available worldwide through a network of Technical Centres and power generation machining specialists.
The hostile conditions under which turbine blades operate places severe demands on the materials from which they are made. This in turn demands exceptional performance from the cutting tools designed to handle the machining of these critical components; particularly blades exposed to the full effect of the hot gas stream. We have the tools and machining strategies to fulﬁll all the expectations of manufacturing engineers engaged in this type of production.
We closely follow developments in 3 and 5 axis machining and associated computer support technologies. These technologies have enabled major advances in the cost effective manufacture of fully machined impellers and rotor hubs. New machine technologies are inseparable from new cutting tool technologies and we provide a full range of tooling and machining strategies to realise even the most demanding and advanced aspects of producing these types of component.
Fir tree roots
The machining of vane and blade ﬁr-tree roots involves the production of highly customised tooling to compliment the processes that have been developed to ensure both quality and consistency of the ﬁnished product. We have the knowledge and expertise to work alongside you to increase throughput and explore new machining strategies. New carbide grades, geometries and designs are continually evolving and ﬁnding their place in this specialised area of machining.
