Time-Saving Semi-Standard Helical Cutter Program

Seco has launched a new semi-standard helical cutter program that streamlines the process of obtaining advanced helical cutting tools. "The program slashes the typically long lead times required for such custom tooling and will ensure customers in demanding industries such as automotive and aerospace can apply the technology and improve their metal removal operations as quickly as possible," said a company spokesperson. 

Custom helical cutters offer numerous advantages for a variety of industries. "In aerospace applications involving heat-resistant super alloys and aluminum, the cutters remove more material with deeper cuts compared to standard milling cutters," said the spokesperson. Such improvements in material removal also benefit manufacturers in the high-volume production environments of the automotive industry, among others.

The new program's innovation and effectiveness comes from a newly optimized process. "For many of our customers," noted Tim Aydt, Product Manager of Seco's indexable milling division, "the main barrier to using helical cutters involved the turnaround time between ordering and receiving a custom version of the tool. Our new custom helical cutter program significantly shortens that time by 50%, from 60 days to as few as 30."

 "Seco accomplishes this lead-time reduction through a range of semi-standardized custom models that virtually eliminates quoting and removes the need for individual tool design and approval processes," said a company spokesperson. "Fully replaceable end caps for the tools enable further process optimization and allow manufacturers to replace the front rows of their cutters effortlessly and cost-effectively."
