Seco Brings Duratomic Grade to IMTS
May 24, 2010—
Seco Tools, Inc. will highlight its latest Duratomic grade TP0500, in booth # W-1564 at IMTS 2010. This new turning grade is suited to a variety of steel machining operations with stable cutting conditions and where a lot of heat is generated. Applications that can make significant gains using TP0500 include those requiring high metal removal rates such as the machining of large components for the power generation segment or for high-speed, high productivity applications found in the highly competitive automotive sector. Benefits of the new grade include increased speed capability--even with a long time in cut, fewer machine offsets, longer times between insert indexes, and the ability to machine harder parts and to hold tighter tolerances.
At IMTS, Seco will highlight its complete line of proprietary Duratomic coatings, which have proven to be about 15 percent tougher and 10 percent harder than traditional coatings, according to the company's press release. In tests run under identical conditions, an insert coated with the Duratomic process runs cooler compared to an identical insert coated with a conventional aluminum oxide coating. This means less crater wear, less deformation of the cutting edge and longer tool life.
