Seco Tools has expanded its family of Duratomic-based TP grades to include TP3501, which is designed to provide optimal application security. The grade is ideal for steel turning applications that involve numerous interrupted cuts, less stable machines, short time in cut or weak setups due to part size or shape.

The Duratomic coatings are designed to enable reliable performance in specific cutting materials and applications by manipulating coating components at an atomic level, improving mechanical and thermal properties and enhancing performance with a balance of toughness and hardness.

The TP grade also incorporates Seco’s Edge Intelligence concept, featuring Chrome used-edge detection, which enables a user to identify when an edge has been used, making every edge count and reducing potential waste.

The range for TP3501 includes nearly 400 inserts available in a variety of geometries and chipbreakers, including M6.

  • Start With The Right Speeds And Feeds

    Running rotary milling cutters at the proper speeds and feeds is critical to obtaining long tool life and superior results, and a good place to start is with the manufacturer's recommendations. These formulas and tips provide useful guidelines.

  • Where Dry Milling Makes Sense

    Liquid coolant offers advantages unrelated to temperature. Forced air is the fluid of choice in this shop...but even so, conventional coolant can't be eliminated entirely.

  • Taking The Fear Out Of Hard Turning

    To make the transition to hard turning, you'll need to switch from carbide to CBN inserts, but that is easier (and more economical) than you might think. It's making the jump to much higher surface speeds that might scare you off. It needn't. Here's why.
