Re­vised clas­si­fi­ca­tion sys­tem from Seco

DEMM Engineering & Manufacturing - - MAINTENANCE MATTERS -

Seco has re­leased a new ver­sion of its work­piece ma­te­rial clas­si­fi­ca­tion sys­tem (SMG) that makes it eas­ier to un­der­stand the com­pli­cated in­ter­ac­tions be­tween cut­ting tools and work­piece ma­te­ri­als dur­ing milling, turn­ing and hole­mak­ing op­er­a­tions.

With the im­proved SMG v2, Seco pro­vides new data as well as sim­pli­fies the way in which it or­gan­ises the con­tent, so that more cus­tomers use the clas­si­fi­ca­tion sys­tem as a ba­sis for max­imised met­al­cut­ting op­er­a­tions and pro­duc­tiv­ity gains.

Seco ex­panded the SMG to present the lat­est in­for­ma­tion on to­day’s ad­vanced tool ma­te­ri­als such as PCN, PCD and ceram­ics. The company also widened its range of work­piece ma­te­rial clas­si­fi­ca­tions for steels, cast irons, non-fer­rous ma­te­ri­als, su­per al­loys, ti­ta­nium, plas­tics, com­pos­ites and more.

The colour-co­or­di­nated groups within the clas­si­fi­ca­tion sys­tem in­di­cate the ISO cat­e­gory for each ma­te­rial type, while a com­pre­hen­sive cross-ref­er­ence list in­di­cates where a ma­te­rial may ap­pear in dif­fer­ent SMG groups based on how it is pro­cessed, e.g., an­nealed, quenched and tem­pered for through hard­en­ing.

Fur­ther­more, each SMG cat­e­gory in­cludes de­tails on a ref­er­ence ma­te­rial that the user can re­fer to in or­der to de­ter­mine if the cut­ting data should be adapted for their spe­cific ap­pli­ca­tion.

In terms of how of Seco or­gan­ises the com­pre­hen­sive data in SMG v2, the company makes iden­ti­fy­ing the most ap­pro­pri­ate cut­ting tools and cut­ting pa­ram­e­ters for a par­tic­u­lar work­piece ma­te­rial quick and sim­ple by pre­sent­ing all rel­e­vant data in a con­cise, log­i­cal man­ner.

The company cat­e­gorises work­piece ma­te­ri­als by type, ca­pa­bil­i­ties and char­ac­ter­is­tics, rather than rel­a­tive lev­els of machin­abil­ity. A sim­pli­fied cut­ting-data chart for­mat now runs common across all Seco prod­uct cat­a­logues.

Plus, a new data dis­play for­mat makes charts ap­pli­ca­ble to all tool types.­quiry #141129
