The Double Turbo line of square shoulder mills and inserts from Seco Tools LLC (Troy, MI) improve roughing operations and reduce power consumption in steel, stainless steels, cast iron, and high-temperature alloys with an advanced cutter geometry. For the highest level of productivity, the tools use double-sided inserts with four cutting edges and state-of-the-art milling grades.
A highly accurate geometry with the most positive helix angle possible reduces the likelihood of surface mismatches and enables 90-degree angle accuracy. With such precision, finishing cycle times are significantly shortened and, in some cases, eliminated.
The ZOMX16 inserts have high, positive geometries for effective chip evacuation and reduced cutting forces. These features minimize vibrations for extended tool life and smooth surface finishes. The double-sided design provides significant cost-per-edge savings. Two geometries (ME10 and M12) and two radii (0.8 and 1.6). Both PVD and Duratomic CVD grades are available.
