Seco’s new Double Quattromill 14 cutter allows manufacturers with lower horsepower machines to maximise their face-milling operations.
Double Quattromill 14 uses double-sided inserts with eight cutting edges for cost effectiveness and increased depths of cut in roughing, semi-finishing and finishing operations.
Double Quattromill 14 has been designed as a smaller version of the company’s Double Quattromill 22, which is suitable for large machines with higher horsepower and torque capabilities.
Seco’s Double Quattromill 14 comes in 45° and 68° lead-angle versions for depths of cut up to 6 and 8 mm respectively. With the 45° angle version, which aids set ups using weak or unstable fixturing, better chip thinning and higher feed rates are provided. The 68° angle cutter reaches high depths of cut with the same size inscribed circle on the insert as the 45° angle tool, but with better clearance to avoid sidewalls or part fixturing. Different to inserts on standard tangential-type face mills, the Double Quattromill 14 offers lower cutting forces. This factor extends tool life and decreases machine power consumption, reducing strain on the machine. The Double Quattromill 14 cutter bodies come in fixed-pocket and cassette styles, with standard or close pitch (in metric or inch versions). Seco has also applied its latest surface texture technology to the flute surfaces of the cutter body, a feature that helps improve chip control and evacuation, as well as durability. Double Quattromill 14 cutters can be accompanied by three insert ranges with various edges and grade options.
