Milling and Drilling at Composites 2011
February 4, 2011
Seco Tools will be demonstrating a range of tooling solutions for milling and drilling applications at Composites 2011. The company will exhibit its products in booth #1710 at the event, which takes place February 2- 4 at the Broward County Convention Center in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. In recent years, Seco Tools has concentrated heavily on developing tooling solutions for the wide range of composite materials used by manufacturers in the aerospace, automotive, medical and sporting goods industries. At Composites 2011, the company will highlight some its most recent breakthroughs, including its unique Jabro end mills and Feedmax drills. The Jabro line of end mills features five new cutter geometries, designed to prevent delamination and fiber shattering across a range of processes. The tools utilize Seco Tools' DURA diamond coating to resist the abrasion that impedes the performance of traditional end mills. Seco Tools' booth will highlight Jabro products suitable for slotting, as well as roughing and finishing operations for side milling and copy milling. Feedmax drills contain sharp, optimized geometries designed to minimize delamination during hole entry and exit, while also achieving suitable chip breaking and evacuation. The newest additions to the line include the C1 for CFRP and C2 for stacked materials comprised of CFRP and aluminum or titanium. The drills utilize a micro-grain substrate and diamond coating to maximize wear-resistance in demanding applications.
