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.
