Seco Tools’ Super Turbo chamfer mills are designed to increase metal removal rates while reducing production costs. The cutters use the same inserts and hardware as the company’s standard square shoulder mills, enabling manufacturers to increase the versatility of their operations without additional spare parts.
The chamfer mills feature a high positive cutting rake angle and positive helix angle designed to reduce power consumption, resulting in freer cutting and reduced harmonics. The company says the design increases tool life compared to standard APxx-style cutters, helping to reduce cost per part.
The chamfer mills are available in setting angles of 30, 45, 60 and 75 degrees, with a depth-of-cut capability ranging from 0.197" to 1.653", for production of common open or close-to-shoulder chamfers. They also are available in Seco-Capto and Combimaster back-end options, with standard shell-mill mounting styles in either inch or metric arbor holes. All versions include internal coolant channels.
