New inserts for high-feed milling operationsSeco Tools (UK) Ltd (www.secotools.com) has introduced a new range of larger LP09 inserts for use with its High Feed 2 cutter bodies.

Designed to allow manufacturers to improve both productivity and process reliability, the new inserts offer high insert-corner strength and dual cutting edges and can undertake a range of high-feed milling operations, including face milling, helical interpolation, slotting, side milling, pocketing and plunging; they can also undertake the machining of ‘difficult’ materials used in the mould and die, aerospace, and oil and gas industries.

High Feed 2 cutter bodies feature strong reinforced cores and more teeth ‘per diameter’, thereby allowing high feed rates to be used.

Furthermore, during high-feed milling operations, the ‘optimised flutes’ of the cutter bodies evacuate chips quickly and efficiently.

The rectangular shape of the LP09 inserts and the close-pitched cutter bodies help extend tool life beyond that achieved with square inserts.

Furthermore, the cutter-body pockets have been designed to ensure consistent and precise insert positioning/seating during indexing, while high-strength screw clamps hold inserts securely in place.

Once the launch programme has been completed early this year, LP09 positive inserts will be available in a full range of grades, including D12, MD15, M13, ME08 and E08. Seco Tools’ High Feed 2 cutter bodies range in diameter from 25mm to 100mm.

Be seen in all the right places!
