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.



  • The Fundamentals of Chip Control

    Having strategies in place for managing chips is an important part of protecting the production process, from tool life to product quality.

  • Skiving Long, Slender Parts with Tight Tolerances

    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.

  • 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.
