The Seco Tools’ heat-resistant TS2000 and TS2500 grades employ manufacturing techniques including an edge preparation process and coating to cut faster, work harder and last longer when turning even challenging materials, according to the company. An edge preparation process provides the grades with a better edge integrity and improved adhesion between substrate and coating. This is said to boost surface quality on machined parts and provides the insert with a consistent tool life while machining heat-resistant materials such as superalloys and titanium alloys. 

TS2000 incorporates a PVD coating that provides wear resistance and reliability. The coating reduces the risk of plastic deformation as well as crater wear. This grade is said to be aimed at high-quality finishing of heat-resistant alloys, but with the strength to handle semi-roughing situations as well.  

TS2500 is designed to handle interrupted cuts, tough cast skin and high stress. According to the company, it is ideal for roughing and semi-finishing applications in various kinds of super and titanium alloys.
