Seco Tools' MR6 chipbreaker is optimized for peak performance in the medium-rough turning of steels. The chipbreaker's main advantage is the open design coupled with the company's Duratomic coated grades, allowing for the use of higher cutting speeds when compared to traditionally designed chipbreakers. Field tests of the MR6 as compared to competitive chipbreakers revealed that it increased productivity by 30 to 55 percent, according to the company.

Benefits of the chipbreaker include the fact that it generates lower cutting forces within the main cutting area allowing higher cutting speed, depth of cut and feed, which increase machine use and productivity. Its lower static and dynamic forces make it less prone to vibration, thus increasing reliability, security and part quality. The common bumps on ordinary chipbreakers for steel turning create fast crater wear at higher speeds and feeds, according to the company.
