The Seco Niagara Cutter Stabilizer product family has expanded to include the ST540 five-flute end mill. The STS540, STSN540, STR540, STRN540 and STRCS540 family of solid carbide end mills offers complete solutions for machining processes ranging from slot milling to side mill finishing as well as those involving as much as 40-percent radial stepovers for fast material removal, thanks to strong cutting edges and full eccentric reliefs, according to the company.

In addition to small-diameter tools for milling and 140 new inch sizes, including a necked version for long-reach applications, the expansion also includes advanced helical chip splitters developed by Niagara Cutter to ensure good chip evacuation in even the most challenging applications, the company says. An offset design makes for an all-in-one end mill solution that can handle both roughing and finishing operations and is equally effective in all material types, from steel to cast iron and stainless steels to superalloys.
