End mills offer stability and long life

Seco Tools is offering a new family of versatile, highly productive solid-carbide end mills: the JSE510 series. Redesigned to offer more rigidity, chip control and tool life, the company says the new milling cutters achieve the lowest possible costs per metre of machined steel, stainless steel, cast iron, titanium and some aluminiums. The cutters provide high process reliability across a broad application range.

JSE510 cutters offer higher versatility in comparison with the previous version of this product range, not just for general engineering, contract manufacturers and job shops, but those specifically serving the aerospace, medical and automotive industries. Seco’s design for the JSE510 stands up to tough milling applications with a versatile carbide grade, advanced polished SIRA coatings and a strong, sharp cutting edge. To extend tool life further, the tools offer a vibration-damping variable pitch design and an optimised helix.

Seco’s JSE510 family includes 216 tools in four geometries, with two length variants in the three and four-flute version: normal (LV2) and long (LV3). The two-flute JSE512 handles the large chips produced in helical interpolation or peck drilling, keyways and slotting applications, while the three-flute JSE513 offers universal milling performance for ramping, full slotting and side milling. The four-flute JSE514 is for side milling and slotting, as well as dynamic milling. Finally, the ball-nose end-mill geometry of the JSB512 offers the versatility required for finishing operations.

“These cutters offer productivity in less stable machining conditions or when pushed hard to balance productivity and tool life costs,” says Rob Mulders, solid end mills global product manager. “This versatility makes the JSE510 series particularly useful when shops face increased tooling costs because of a greater variety of applications and materials.”
