FACE-MILLING CUTTER MAXIMISES MACHINE PERFORMANCE

The Seco Tools Double Quattromill 14 face-milling cutter allows workshops with lower horsepower machines to maximise their face-milling operations. It uses double-sided inserts with eight cutting edges for cost-effectiveness and increased depths of cut in roughing, semi-finishing and finishing operations. It was designed as a smaller version of Seco’s Double Quattromill 22, which is ideal for large machines with higher horsepower and torque capabilities.

The Double Quattromill 14 comes in 45° and 68° lead angle versions for depths of cut up to 6mm (0.236in) and 8mm (0.315in) respectively. The 45° angle version, which excels in weak or unstable fixturing, provides better chip thinning and higher feed rates. The 68° angle version reaches high depths of cut with the same size inscribed circle on the insert as the 45° angle, but with better clearance to avoid sidewalls or part fixturing. Unlike the inserts on standard tangential-type face mills, it offers extremely free cutting to lower cutting forces and machine power consumption while it extends tool life.

Its cutter bodies come in fixed-pocket and cassette styles, with standard or close pitch along with metric or inch versions. Seco has also applied its new surface texture technology to the cutter bodies’ flute surfaces for enhanced chip control and evacuation, as well as durability.

It offers three insert ranges with various edges and grade options. The ME10 geometry works with sticky materials such as titanium and stainless steel. The M10 geometry includes sharper edges and smaller T-lands for reduced cutting force that excels at lower horsepower levels, working with sticky materials, some tool steels and super alloys. The M16 provides the best edge protection of the three insert geometries when machining abrasive materials such as steels, tool steels and cast irons.
