DRILL MORE HOLES FASTER WITH BETTER CHIP MANAGEMENT SECO RE-ENGINEERS PERFOMAX® AND MAKES AN EXCELLENT DRILL EVEN BETTER Increase your drilling parameters and boost tool life with Seco’s new Perfomax indexable insert drill with optimized chip flutes for optimum chip control and evacuation. The flutes on the bodies of the new drills feature recently developed “anti-friction surfaces.” The special wave patterns of these surfaces minimize the contact between chips and the flutes for higher application security. Seco also laser hardens the fronts of the flutes to a high surface hardness of HRC 60,...

The new insert grades have niobium nitride (NbN) top layers that do not chemically react with titanium. The prevention of that reaction – the most common wear factor with titanium – significantly extends tool life. The combination of both heat and wear resistance with the DS2050 and DS4050 coatings also makes the inserts a first choice for drilling HRSA S and difficult stainless steel materials as well as titanium and titanium alloys. RANGE OVERVIEW Perfomax drill bodies: • Diameter range 15 – 59 mm (metric) .594”- 2.375” (inch) • Length to diameter ratios of 2xD, 3xD, 4xD and 5xD •...

PUT SOME FORWARD THRUST IN YOUR MILLING PERFORMANCE MORE INSERTS DELIVER HIGHER FEED RATES WITH SECO’S NEW CERAMIC GRADE AND CUTTER BODIES Shorten cycle times and produce more parts by incorporating new ceramic grades and cutter bodies that put more inserts in the cut. You will gain immediate and significant cutting data increases over standard carbide milling tools when you incorporate Seco’s new CS300 ceramic inserts and RN/RP cutter bodies developed specifically for nickel-based superalloy materials such as those typically used in the aerospace and power generation industries.

Designed to run only ceramic inserts, the new cutter bodies use Seco’s compact Wedge locks instead of conventional insert clamps. As a result, you get more inserts per cutter body diameter and higher feed rate capability. Plus, to ensure optimum chip evacuation and heat control, each Wedge lock features internal coolant channels that pinpoint jet streams of air precisely into the cutting zone. Get the toughness, strength and process stability necessary for aggressive milling of tough-to-machine superalloy materials when you pair Seco’s new CS300 ceramic milling inserts with the new...
