Seco Tools’ relaunched website is designed to guide visitors to new features as well as general tooling information.

Two features stand out on Seco Toolsnew website: a utility named “Suggest,” which calls up detailed tooling recommendations depending on the application, and a “News and Events” feature that consists of readable discussions of new and basic tooling concepts. For example, the information about controlling mechanical loads in milling operations has a clear explanation of the considerations involved in “up” (climb) milling compared to “down” (conventional). It covers appropriate strategies for how the tool should enter and exit a workpiece in each mode and how these strategies affect chip formation. This is good background or refresher material worth knowing.
