SECO’S NEW TURBO MILLING INSERTS FOR SMOOTH FINISHING

Seco has recently introduced two new PCD-tipped milling insert grades for use with its popular Turbo 10 cutters.

PCD05 and PCD20 are well-proven PCD grades that produce unmatched surface quality in finish machining applications, primarily in aluminium, but also in titanium alloys.

These workpiece materials are typically found in aerospace and automotive applications. The new grades are also highly effective in cutting polymers and fibre-reinforced composites.

PCD05 and PCD20 milling insert grades work alone or alongside carbide inserts in the same Turbo 10 cutter body. When used with carbide inserts, the PCD insert grades serve as wiper inserts in fixed pockets.

Conversely, running the PCD05 and PCD20 in one Turbo 10 cutter body optimises their potential and ensures maximum cutting parameters.

Featuring solid carbide insert bodies, the PCD05 and PCD20 come in the company’s X010 insert size with a corner radius of 0.4 mm (.016") and wiper length of 1.08 mm (0.43"). 

The Turbo 10 cutter bodies that hold the PCD05 and PCD20 include precision milled pocket seats that improve run-out, stability and tool life by providing optimal contact between the tool body and insert.

Integrated through-coolant channels support high productivity and promote excellent chip evacuation. Because of their high levels of flexibility, Turbo 10 cutters work in slotting, shouldering, ramping, facing, pocketing, plunging and turn milling applications.

For more information on the PCD05 and PCD20 milling insert grades for use with Turbo 10 cutters, contact a local Seco representative or visit www.secotools.com/turbo10/pcd.
