Get into the groove

DEMM Engineering & Manufacturing - - PRODUCT WATCH -

Seco’s CP200 has long been an ex­cel­lent grade for part­ing-off and groov­ing op­er­a­tions in­volv­ing chal­leng­ing ma­te­ri­als. To fur­ther in­crease the ver­sa­til­ity of this proven PVD prod­uct, the com­pany has now made it avail­able for MDT (multi-di­rec­tional turn­ing) ap­pli­ca­tions.

While pri­mar­ily in­tended for su­per­al­loys, in­clud­ing In­conel, Hastel­loy and Was­paloy, as well as high­strength steels, the new CP200 for MDT is also highly pro­duc­tive when cut­ting cast iron with low hard­ness and marten­sitic stain­less steels.

The lat­est in­serts fea­ture an op­ti­mised mi­cro­grain and sharp, pe­riph­ery-ground cut­ting edge that al­lows them to ex­cel in high-speed op­er­a­tions and main­tain a high re­sis­tance to plas­tic de­for­ma­tion.

In gen­eral, the CP200 grade com­ple­ments Seco’s un­coated 883 grade, and can be paired with the com­pany’s Jet­stream Tool­ing to fur­ther en­hance chip con­trol, pro­duc­tiv­ity, sur­face fin­ish and over­all com­po­nent qual­ity.

Jet­stream Tool­ing de­liv­ers high-pres­sure coolant di­rectly to the cut­ting edge to re­move heat from the cut­ting zone and fa­cil­i­tate higher cut­ting speeds.

The CP200 range in­cludes three chip­breaker op­tions: FT for fine turn­ing and deep groov­ing; MP for medium turn­ing, pro­fil­ing and groov­ing with good ac­ces­si­bil­ity; and RP for fine and medium turn­ing, pro­fil­ing and groov­ing. Fur­ther­more, the grade is of­fered in sin­gle and dou­ble-ended in­serts and in cut­ting edge widths from 3 mm to 10 mm (0.125" to 0.25").­quiry #D140202a
