Seco Tools Inc.’s TP0500 turning grade features one of the company’s wear-resistant Duratomic coatings. The grade is suited to a variety of steel machining operations with stable cutting conditions, and where a lot of heat is generated. Applications that can make significant gains using TP0500 include those requiring high metal removal rates such as the machining of large components for the power generation segment or for high speed, high productivity applications found in the automotive sector.

Benefits of the grade include increased speed capability—even with a long time in cut, fewer machine offsets, longer times between insert indexes and the ability to machine harder parts and to hold tighter tolerances, the company says.

The Duratomic coating on the grades means less crater wear, less deformation of the cutting edge and longer tool life, according to the company.

Grade TP0500 is offered in a complete range of chipbreaker geometries that includes negative inserts, positive inserts and high feed wiper inserts. In combination with Seco’s existing Duratomic turning grade lineup of TP1500, TP2500, and TP3500, the grade TP0500 extends the company’s offering of peak performance tools for every steel turning operation.
