          • High Feed Mills

          • High feed milling is a milling method that permits up to three times faster machining than conventional methods.

            It pairs shallow depth of cut with high feed per tooth which gives higher metal removal rates and results in more parts being machined. The cutting forces are directed at the machine spindle in the axial direction, which means greater stability and reduced vibrations, extending tool life. Additionally, high feed milling tools save time by avoiding semi finishing and reducing tool changes.

            Our expansive range of high feed milling solutions meets all application needs. Plus, with the help of Seco’s knowledgeable and experienced team, you can seamlessly implement high speed milling techniques to increase your productivity and competitiveness.

            Face milling with the high feed milling method is perfect for creating a good platform for further machining operations or a final finishing. In most applications, you’ll often get such fine tolerances that only final finishing is needed.

            High feed milling is also very practical for copy mill machining uneven surfaces and is highly effective in cavity milling and creating molds and dies. With copy milling and cavity milling, the application indicates the necessary tool diameter, making selecting the right tool easy.

            In helical interpolation, high feed milling is suitable for making large-diameter holes because it often means skipping pre-machining or pre-drilling. It’s also commonly used for plunging operations, especially when machining difficult materials such as titanium and other light alloys.
          • Plunge Mills

          • Seco offers one of the most comprehensive ranges of plunge milling cutters. Plunging is the most efficient milling process in terms of removing significant amount of material in the least amount of time. With their high material removal rates, plunging cutters are ideal for roughing in 3D milling applications.
          • Spot facing mills

          • Seco spot facing mills are cutters for milling spot faces of blind and countersunk holes. Key benefits include smooth cutting, reduced spindle bearing wear via a highly balanced tool and high security through a center-lock clamping system, all engineered in an economical solution.
          • Chamfer Mills

          • Seco chamfer mills offer the same free cutting action as our standard milling cutters, providing strong and reliable performance. With options for through-coolant and 30-degree, 45-degree, 60-degree and 75-degree setting angles, our family of chamfer mills is available with Combimaster™, Arbor and Seco-Capto connections.
        • Exchangeable Head Mills

        • With Seco exchangeable head cutters, significant cost savings are achieved through the ability to replace worn inserts rather than an entire tool.

                                            Other threading tools are limited in terms of either thread size and/or maximum hole depths they can thread. The new heads, unlike standard thread mills, are single raw disc mills that circular interpolate an entire hole depth and create threads pitch by pitch, which allows for greater achievable depths. The cutting action of the new heads also keeps chip sizes to a minimum and ensures taper-free deep-hole threading.

                                            Smaller, less powerful machine tools can now easily generate big threads because the new heads cut with a single point. The heads thus require less machine power and torque.
