Increase Productivity When Machining Heat-Resistant Super Alloys

Unpredictable tool life and slow rough-machining speeds hinder heat-resistant super alloy (HRSA) component productivity. New Secomax CW100 silicon carbide whisker-reinforced ceramic insert formats and geometries successfully tackle materials such as Inconel 718 and Hastelloy.

Turn more parts per cutting edge with four round formats and four grooving geometries for Secomax CW100 ceramic inserts from Seco Tools. Silicon-carbide whiskers boost machining speeds and ensure predictable tool life for the lowest possible cost per part.

Secomax CW100 inserts from Seco Tools (Troy, MI) are designed for manufacturers seeking solutions to unpredictable tool life and slow rough-machining speeds when working with heat-resistant super alloys (HRSA). An aluminium-oxide-based grade with silicon-carbide whiskers (Al2O3-SiC), the  inserts offer superior wear-, fracture- and notch-resistance as well as high hardness at elevated temperatures, making them ideal for machining Inconel 718, Hastelloy, Waspaloy, MAR, Nimonic, Rene, and Udimet for aerospace, oil-and-gas, and power-generation applications.

A grade expansion encompasses:

  • Four round insert formats with two geometries, E-01020 and T-01020
  • Four grooving insert geometries with widths of 0.125-inch (3.175 mm), 0.25-inch (6.35 mm), and 0.312-inch (7.925 mm).

Recommended cutting window: 490 to 985 surface feet per minute (sfm; 150 to 300 meters per minute) speeds and 0.002 to 0.010 in/rev (0.05-0.25 mm/rev) feeds.
