Seco Assistant app
The Seco Assistant all-in-one mobile app makes it easy to quickly and easily identify cutting tools and strategies to reduce costs and increase machining productivity. The app is designed to put the product information machinists need at their fingertips without the need for internet searches or catalog research, and even has an offline functionality.
The app has a variety of functions to quickly access appropriate cutting data. The app’s machining calculator provides turning, milling and holemaking data for any brand, including feeds, speeds and material removal rate. The Tool Comparison function gives Seco tool recommendations and alternatives to other manufacturer’s inserts, while the Suggest function helps find the right tooling option and cutting strategies for specific jobs.
Users can search for products by item, number, designation or grade, or simply scan the QR code on the packaging. The company says the app is designed for maximum convenience and ease of use, with a small download size and a clean, clear interface. If users don’t have an internet connection, they can also search for Seco products or use the data calculators offline.
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.
Here's a look at one of the oldest and most efficient methods of screw machine production for parts that are long and slender, with close-diameter tolerances and finishes, or parts that require truly spherical radii.
