Seco Tools’ R217/220.28 cutters have body designs that incorporate double-sided round inserts to deliver performance and productivity. The double-negative-positioning pocket seats of the cutters deliver enhanced cutting capability, gains in productivity and enable safe and user-friendly indexing, the company says.  

The cutters perform face milling, slotting and contouring in ISO M and ISO S materials, as well as some difficult-to-machine ISO P materials, such as martensitic stainless steel. According to the company, the cutter excels in Z-leveling applications and machining of turbine blades for the aerospace and power generation segments.

The range for the cutters include diameters from 1.25” (32 mm) to 4.00” (100 mm) in normal and close pitch versions. The 12-mm IC inserts are available in PVD and CVD grades with two different geometries for varying applications.
