Tooling Innovations and Turn-Key Services

Seco will spotlight its new tools and growing range of services, and will also offer visitors the opportunity to interact with its products and technology via an immersive augmented reality (AR) experience.

New tooling solutions include the Double QuattroMill 22, a double-sided version of the company's line of face milling tools, and the newly redesigned Perfomax indexable insert drills. Seco's solid tooling display at the show will include the Feedmax -P drill configuration that incorporates a new coating and geometry specifically for holemaking in steel and cast iron, as well as Niagara Cutter advanced high feed milling tools with grades and geometries designed for high efficiency even in tough materials.

"As a one-stop shop for optimizing manufacturing processes, Seco will unveil its consultancy service, which will complement the company's existing services like STEP training and SecoPoint inventory management," said a company spokesperson. "The consultancy will utilize an extensive evaluation process that examines every aspect of a company's operations to identify all of the factors impacting its bottom line. Visitors will be among the first to learn more about this new service and how it will give manufacturers the opportunity for truly comprehensive process optimization."

Double QuattroMill 22

Seco's Double QuattroMill 22 face mill for roughing and semi-finishing offers enhanced performance with its free cutting geometry. Its innovative insert placement reduces cutting forces, leading to workpiece stability, improved tool life and maximum productivity. The Double QuattroMill 22 is suited for applications in a wider range of part materials than before, including steel and cast iron, as well as 15-5 stainless steel and super alloy materials such as titanium and Inconel.

Feedmax -P

The new Seco Feedmax -P drill is designed to boost holemaking performance for ISO P (steel) and cast iron workpiece materials. "The solid carbide Feedmax -P drills can increase drilling productivity by up to 35% while also providing longer tool life due to the combination of the drill's new geometry and advanced TiAlN coating," said the spokesperson. "Together with the drill's strong point geometry, cutting speeds of 623 FPM are possible in 4140 alloy steel without sacrificing tool life."

Seco offers the Feedmax -P in diameters ranging from .078" to .787" (2 mm to 20 mm) and in length-to-diameter ratios of 3xD, 5xD and 7xD. All drills come standard with through-the-tool coolant channels for maximum performance. Custom versions such as intermediate sizes and chamfer and step drills are available upon request.


The newly redesigned Seco Perfomax indexable insert drill offers greater productivity and longer tool life. Featuring higher drilling parameters as well as enhanced chip control and evacuation, the drill's flutes have improved helix angles along with smoother chip flute exits and Seco's engineered wave pattern, which minimizes contact between chips and flute surfaces. For up to 140% longer drill body tool life, Seco laser hardens the fronts of Perfomax's flutes. A hardness of HRC 60 allows the drill to withstand chip erosion for longer periods of time.

Perfomax drill bodies are available in diameters ranging 0.594" to 2.375" (15 mm to 59 mm); in length-to-diameter ratios of 2xD, 3xD, 4xD and 5xD; and in most spindle interfaces.


Niagara Cutter high feed MZN410R and MZN510R AlTiN-coated solid carbide end mills offer enhanced wear resistance and performance for applications that involve machining mold and die components from hardened steel, cast iron or nickel based super alloy workpiece materials. Niagara Cutter's line of high feed milling tools also includes the MBZ ball end mills designed for rough and finish milling of contours and complex shapes for mold and die steels.

"When used in high feed milling operations, these cutters reduce machining time and costs by allowing use of one tool for a wide range of operations, maximizing material removal rates and allowing close-to-profile pocketing of 90° walls," said the spokesperson. "The technique also minimizes semi-finishing operations to further increase machining efficiency."
