Boosting stability and tool life

New family of flexible optimised solid end mills launched

In its continued effort to provide the most cost-effective tooling solutions available, Seco Tools has announced a new family of flexible, highly productive solid end mills: the Seco JSE510 series.

Redesigned to offer the rigidity, chip control and tool life to achieve the lowest possible costs per meter machined in steels, stainless steels, cast iron, titanium and some aluminiums, these solid end mills are said to provide "exceptional process reliability across a broad application range".

New series targets general engineering and much more

“The reoptimised design of the new JSE510 offers unparalleled versatility, based on the previous version of this product range,” states Seco Tools. The new series targets general engineering, contract manufacturers and job shops, as well as the aerospace, medical and automotive industries. The design is reoptimised to stand up to tough milling applications, with a versatile carbide grade, advanced polished SIRA coatings and a strong, sharp cutting edge. To extend tool life further, these tools offer vibration-damping variable pitch design and optimised helix.

"These solid end mills offer productivity in less-stable machining conditions or when pushed hard to balance productivity and tool life cost effectively," says Rob Mulders, solid end mills global product manager. "This versatility makes the JSE510 series particularly useful when shops face increased costs in required tooling because of a greater variety of applications and materials. For these shops, the new tool series’ expanded application window allows them to reduce their tooling inventory without affecting their ability to maximise throughput."

Multiple tools, geometries and lengths

The Seco JSE510 family includes 216 tools in four geometries, with two length variants in the three and fourflute version, normal (LV2) and long (LV3). The two-flute JSE512 easily handles the large chips produced in helical interpolation or peck drilling, keyways and slotting applications, while the three-flute JSE513 offers universal milling performance for ramping, full slotting and side milling.

The four-flute JSE514 is said to be ideal for optimised side milling and slotting, as well as dynamic milling. Finally, the ball-nose end mill geometry of the JSB512 offers the flexibility required for finishing parts and other ball-nose applications.
