New End Mills Boost Material Removal Rates

Seco Tools recently released two new solid-carbide end mills that boost metal removal rates and offer long tool life for a variety of challenging workpiece materials. The Jabro-HFM JHF181 offers high-feed milling strategies in hardened steels and nickel-based alloys, while the Jabro-Solid2 JS564 and JS565 represent Seco's focus on developing tools for roughing strategies for materials such as steels, stainless steels and titanium alloys.

"As the latest member in the Seco high-feed family, the new Jabro-HFM JHF181 increases metal removal rates by up to 30% over traditional methods," said a company spokesperson. "The JHF181 is effective at machining complex parts that require long tool overhangs and a mix of multiple axial and radial machining operations. It also provides up to 30% more tool life when processing ISO H materials. With Seco's new HXT coating, the JHF181 gains a hard layer that delivers thermal protection and wear resistance."

The JHF181 is available in 2-, 4- or 5-flute options with cutting diameters from 0.0787" (2 mm) to 0.6299" (16 mm) and length options ranging from 2xD to 7xD. This end mill also has through-tool coolant capability for diameters from 0.2362" (6 mm) to 0.4724" (12 mm.)

Designed for optimized roughing strategies, the new Jabro-Solid2 JS564 and JS565 offer 20% longer tool life than its predecessors due to stable tapered cores, polished NXT coatings and other features. "The JS564 and JS565 provide a relatively high radial engagement while maintaining high feeds and speeds for optimized roughing passes. Furthermore, the positive frontal teeth geometries on these two end mills make them successful in axial and helical interpolation operations," said the spokesperson.

New, optimized chip splitter options on the end mills create small chips when using long cutting lengths, providing enhanced chip evacuation. This is beneficial when machining deep pockets and reduces operational risks, such as tool breakage and workpiece scrap.

The JS564 and JS565 are available in 4- and 5-flute designs in a range of cutting diameters and lengths. The JS565 is also available without chip splitters. For both the JS564 and JS565, cylindrical shank diameters are available from 0.1181" (3 mm) to 0.7874" (20 mm), and Weldon shank diameters are available from 0.2362" (6 mm) to 0.7874" (20 mm.) All of these options are stocked products.
