Seco expands its range of solutions for turning superalloys and hardened steels

Seco expands its range of solutions for turning superalloys and hardened steels

Added to MTDCNC by Seco Tools (UK) Ltd on 07 August 2014

Seco has widened its range of high-productivity cutting tool solutions for machining demanding materials by making further additions to its proven and popular high-performance turning grades.

Available in both negative and centre-locked-styled inserts, the new TH1000 and TH1500 grades offer significant boosts to productivity and process stability.

TH1000 is a TiSiN-TiAIN nano-laminate PVD-coated grade that excels in machining operations involving lower cutting data and featuring interrupted cuts. It brings maximum toughness and high chip resistance to the turning of hard-surfaced components and finish turning of hardened steel parts (HRC 50-62). The grade is also highly resilient to edge fracture and ensures effective chip control in these types of applications.

TH1000 is also a proven grade for finishing and semi-finishing of superalloys, such as Inconel 718, Waspaloy and Nimonic C263. The grade offers significant improvements compared to other carbide finishing grades, allowing cutting speeds to be increased by 50% - 100%. Together with carbide grades TS2000 and CP200 and CBN grade CBN170, TH1000 provides manufacturers with a complete finishing package for superalloys.

Intended to handle higher cutting data, TH1500, which features Seco’s exclusive Duratomic® coating, combines high wear resistance and edge toughness to continuous cut operations involving hardened steel components (HRC 40-55).

In the finishing of grey cast iron and nodular cast iron at low-to-moderate cutting speeds, TH1500 provides long tool life and perfectly complements Seco’s TK1001 and TK2001 grades.

The chipbreaker range available for both the TH1000 and TH1500 insert grades maximises chip control to provide high process security and longer tool life across a broad range of operations.
