Seco recently expanded its successful range of face milling cutters to include an innovative new Double Octomill™ Cassette Cutter. The new cassette cutters use Seco’s advanced pinlocating technology and high-speed steel pins, to ensure fast, easy and precise insert positioning. Equally important, cassette pockets are adjustable to virtually eliminate axial runout.
The Double Octomill Cassette Cutter incorporates Seco’s patented pocket design and features cassettes that are adjustable in the Z-axis or axial direction. Inserts can be mounted and setup in cassettes separately before they are assembled into the cutter body. Each individual cassette can then be adjusted so that all cassettes are cutting on the same plane. This exact insert positioning allows for increased feedrates while ensuring the best possible surface finishes and the longest tool life.
Cassettes are combined with new close-pitch cutter bodies that accommodate Seco’s cost-effective Double Octomill inserts. They are double-sided and provide a total of 16 cutting edges for both economy and high performance. Presently, the Double Octomill Cassette Cutters are available from 125 mm to 315 mm standard, and up to 500 mm as custom. Because the cassettes are modular and removable, they can be quickly and inexpensively replaced if damaged. Users can avoid the expense of replacing an entire cutter body.Source secotools.com
