High-Productivity End Mills Made Possible Thanks to Technology of Pennsylvania Plant
Seco Tools cites the Stabilizer 2.0 end mill as an example of the type of product it is able to manufacture because of the grinding technology that has been part of the improvement of its Niagara Cutter facility.
Overcoming the Challenges of Threading Hardened Parts
Threading hardened parts resulted in long cycle times and fast tool wear for one shop. Seco's Secomax CBN200 insert grade reduced threading cycle time by a third.
Seco Tools Makes Two Product Team Personnel Changes
Olivier Branget is transferring from France to serve the North American market, and Aaron Eller is getting promoted to product manager.
Seco Promotes Component Engineered Tooling Manager
The CET group works with customers to develop complete, optimized processes for individual parts and components.
End Mills Feature Smaller Neck Diameters for Easier Five-Axis Machining
The Jabro-Solid2 JS554 range of solid-carbide end mills from Seco Tools is now available with smaller neck-diameter options.
Cast Iron Turning Grades Ease Detection of Used Edges
Seco’s TK1501 and TK0501 insert grades are dedicated cast iron turning grades said to provide high toughness and wear resistance, reduce tool waste, and process more parts per edge.
Vertical Machining Cells Challenge Horizontal Dominance
When part volumes are high, and success is measured in pennies and seconds, moving away from horizontal machines requires creative thinking about robotics, cutting tools, workholding and more.
Larger Inserts Increase Depth of Cut, Metal Removal
Seco Tools’ Engineered Solutions Square T4-12 line of square-shoulder and helical milling cutters features larger insert sizes and enables manufacturers to achieve increased depths of cut and higher metal-removal rates when roughing and semi-finishing steel, cast iron and other workpiece materials.
Value beyond the Tool Catalog
Both cutting tool suppliers and the manufacturers they serve have plenty to gain from deeper collaboration.
Thinking Beyond the Tool Catalog Helps Everyone Succeed
In an era when many are doing more with less, both cutting tool suppliers and the manufacturers they serve have plenty to gain from deeper collaboration.
T-Style Ceramic Inserts, Holders Extends Tool Strength, Stability for Difficult Materials
Seco has expanded the roughing and semi-finishing performance capabilities of its Secomax CS100 sialon ceramic grade by adding inserts with T-style edge preparation.
Two New Inserts Added to Disc Milling Cutter Line
Seco has added two insert sizes to its family of 335.25 disc milling cutters designed for flexibility and productivity.

Shop Invests in Tooling Up Front, Saves Money in the Long Run
Valve supplier Vortex needed to optimize its in-house machining operations. Seco tooling helped the shop improve tool life, cycle times and finish.
Seco Tools Donates Over $400,000 in Tools to Trade Schools
The company explains that while they have normally recycled such unused-but-discontinued tooling, this year it decided to donate them.
Insert Coating Eases Detection of Used Edges
Available in a range of insert sizes and geometries to accommodate roughing as well as finishing operations, Seco’s Duratomic TP2501, TP1501 and TP0501 turning grades balance toughness and hardness when machining steel alloys, cast iron and stainless steels.
PCBN Insert Grade Cuts Rough, Abrasive Materials
The CBN600 universal polycrystalline cubic boron nitride (PCBN) insert grade from Seco Tools brings cost-effective performance to high-volume rough turning operations that involve gray cast iron, high-chrome iron and high-manganese steel.
Anti-Vibration System Improves Rigidity of Milling and Turning Assemblies
Seco's Steadyline anti-vibration damping holders are designed to improve the dynamic rigidity of milling and turning tool assemblies.
Seco Tools Makes Organizational Changes
The changes, precipitated in part by the retirement of a longtime director of sales, are said to be part of an open and collaborative process.
Steel Turning Grades Coated for Enhanced Performance
Seco Tools has introduced three turning insert grades designed for toughness and hardness in machining steel alloys as well as cast irons and stainless steels.
