Seco Tools has announced a new line of Super Turbo chamfer mills designed to provide high metal removal rates while reducing production costs. The new cutters use the same inserts and hardware as standard Super Turbo square shoulder mills, allowing manufacturers to increase the versatility of their operations without additional spare parts. The new Super Turbo chamfer mills feature a high positive cutting rake angle and positive helix angle to reduce power consumption, resulting in freer cutting and reduced harmonics. The design increases tool life as compared to standard APxx style cutters, helping to reduce cost per part.
They use the same strong insert pocket design found in the rest of the Super Turbo family of products. The strong insert screws and thick, robust inserts offer increased reliability for fewer tooling changes. Super Turbo chamfer mills are available in setting angles of 30, 45, 60 and 75 degrees, with a depth of cut capability of 0.197" - 1.653", for production of the most common open or close to shoulder chamfers. The new tools are available in Seco-Capto and Combimaster back-end options, with standard shell mill mounting styles in either inch or metric arbor holes. All versions include internal coolant channels.
