Heavy-duty face-milling cuttersDouble Quattromill 22, the latest range of high-performance face-milling cutters from Alcester-based Seco Tools (UK) Ltd (www.secotools.com), has been designed to help component manufacturers significantly improve metal removal rates.

These cutters, which can undertake both roughing and semi-finishing operations, feature double-sided inserts with eight cutting edges and allow high depths of cut to be taken.

The Double Quattromill 22 comes in 45deg and 68deg lead-angle versions for depths of cut up to 9mm and 11mm respectively.

Moreover, the double-sided inserts generate low cutting forces, so they minimise the amount of machine tool power required while optimising tool life.

Double Quattromill 22 cutter bodies are available with fixed-pocket and/or cassette-type options, with standard or close-pitch versions.

These bodies also feature Seco’s new surface texture technology on their flutes, to improve their durability and ensure effective chip control and chip evacuation.

The Double Quattromill 22 offers inserts with various geometry and grade combinations to suit most materials.

For example, inserts with the ME12 geometry are aimed at the machining of super-alloys and stainless steels and are available in a variety of grades, allowing them to be used for machining most workpiece materials.

Meanwhile, inserts with the M18 geometry feature a stronger edge protection and are designed for machining steel and cast iron.
