Seco introduces new high-performance tooling systems

Added to MTDCNC by Seco Tools (UK) Ltd on 17 November 2016

Seco Tools has introduced two new tooling system solutions that have raised the benchmark for precision and performance.

EPB 5831 Slim Hydraulic Chucks

Seco’s new EPB 5831 hydraulic chucks feature a slender profile making it easy to undertake semi finishing and finishing operations in confined spaces e.g. machining tight and narrow cavities in mould tools.

In addition to their slim design, the chucks are available in long lengths of 150mm and 200mm respectively, to access deep workpiece cavities.

These new hydraulic chucks use high pressure and a single pressurised screw to grip small-diameter cutting tools evenly and uniformly. Such secure clamping results in high precision and high repeatability and a run out of less than 5 μm at 3xD for superior surface finishes.

EPB 5831 chucks accommodate 6mm, 8mm, 10mm and 12mm tool diameters, and by using reduction sleeves, the chucks can hold various shank types and diameters. For example, with a reduction sleeve, the 12mm hydraulic chuck can hold 3mm, 4mm, 5mm, 6mm, 8mm and 10mm tools.

The chucks are available in HSK-A63, HSK-A100, BT 40 and Seco-Capto™ C5 machine side connections/interfaces.

ER-to-Combimaster holders

Seco’s new compact ER-to-Combimaster holders are easy to use and provide multi-tasking machine tool users with a highly-stable and versatile tooling solution.

This unique system combines ER taper, ER clamping nuts and a ball bearing interface that delivers reliable and accurate tool positioning that ensures trouble-free machining.

Highly adaptable, the ER-to-Combimaster system is ideal for face, side and disc milling operations using insert-based milling cutters (as opposed to solid end mills) - and the system enables higher material removal rates to be achieved.

Combimaster is available in three ER sizes – 25, 32 and 40 – and five different Combimaster thread-size connections ranging from M8 to M20.

The system supports a wide range of interchangeable milling cutter heads, and is particularly suited to Seco’s Turbo line tools.
