Seco Tools’ multi-directional turning and grooving (MDT) tools offer a variety of applications including grooving, profiling, turning, parting-off and threading. The system consists of holders and inserts for external radial, external axial and internal machining. For the holder, the company’s Secoloc clamping combines a V-shaped top clamp with serrated contact surfaces between the underside of the insert and the toolholder, which is said to deliver stability and safety.

Applications for the system include turning parts with different diameters, complicated profiles and grooves. The system supports a variety of indexable inserts, toolholder styles, cutting widths and grades. It also includes interchangeable heads for use with the Steadyline modular vibration-damping tool bar system that incorporates the company’s GL Connection. According to the company, these ensure precision for grooving and turning in long-reach applications as well as those with a high risk of cutting vibrations.

The system heads also offer the company’s Jetstream coolant technology. This technology is a high-pressure coolant delivery system that removes heat from the cutting zone and is said to improve tool life, part quality and productivity.

  • Thread Whirling Basics

    The rapidly increasing demand for high-value threaded parts with exceptionally high length-to-diameter ratios has created a lot of interest in thread whirling technology among American shops and manufacturers.

  • Broaching On A Lathe

    Producing a keyway, spline or similar longitudinal feature on a turned part usually necessitates an additional, time-consuming, secondary operation on a broaching or slotting machine. That means moving the part to and from a secondary operation, an extra setup, additional labor and hourly machine costs and all of the other headaches that go with secondary operations.

  • Getting the Most Out of Hard Turning

    Traditionally, production of most parts made from hard or hardened materials, defined as those at or more than 45 HRc, required dedicated grinding equipment and processes.
