Seco Tools’ Secomax CS300 ceramic inserts and cutter bodies are designed to boost productivity in milling and turning operations with heavy interrupted cuts on nickel-based heat-resistant superalloys (HRSA). The cutters are said to increase productivity by up to eight times over standard carbide milling and are ideal for machining a range of components for aerospace and power generation turbine segments.

The inserts are SiAlON-type ceramics that offer high notch wear resistance, toughness and thermal shock resistance. The inserts provide flank wear resistance at higher cutting speeds ranging from 1,970-3,940 ft. (600-1,200 m) per minute and enable feeds from 0.002-0.006” (0.05-0.15 mm) per tooth. Combined, these attributes reduce machining cost per workpiece, increase output and lower energy consumption.

    CNC Swiss-Type machines have more capability built in than ever before. Many of these capabilites can be accessed using attachments that increase the throughput of the machine tool, improve the quality of the work coming off the machine and reduce or eliminate the need for secondary operations even for very complex workpieces.
