Seco Tools offers its general-purpose Quattromill face milling cutter in a new close-pitch version. Thanks to a special patented centre-locking insert screw design, the new face mill puts more teeth/inserts in the cut for higher feed rates, improved surface finishes and increased productivity. Instead of locking from the front, the company’s innovative insert screw locks/operates from the back of the insert pocket, eliminating the need for wedges or other extra parts and accommodating more inserts per cutter diameter. Additionally, the company significantly increased the density and strength of the Quattromill close-pitch cutter bodies. Quattromill face mills are free cutting, feature positive cutting rake / negative radial rake geometries and accommodate a wide range of standard inserts for all workpiece materials. And due to their cutter geometries, the face mills excel in both stable and unstable machining conditions. With the company’s new close-pitch development, Quattromill boosts feed rates and overall milling performance.
