The Octomill brings the product family's strong cost and performance benefits to smaller machines.
Seco Tools spotlights its Double Octomill -05, which brings the product family’s strong cost and performance benefits to smaller machines. This highly efficient and economical face milling cutter is available in diameters from 1” (25mm) to 5” (125mm) and provides optimal performance in applications requiring a maximum of 0.118” (3mm) depth of cut.
The insert pockets of Double Octomill -05 incorporate a strong center lock screw and grooves for axial and radial location pins, simplifying the mounting of inserts and ensuring maximum stability during operation. The pockets also feature an 8° negative angle to allow the use of double sided inserts, while the inserts themselves use a positive rake angle to minimize power consumption.
Seco offers four insert geometries for Double Octomill -05, allowing the tool to be successfully applied across a wide range of materials. For applications requiring high surface finishes, a wiper insert with a 0.13” (3.2mm) wiper flat can be incorporated to provide roughing and finishing in a single operation.
All Double Octomill cutters make use of inserts that provide 16 numbered cutting edges to minimize cost per edge and per part. The tools also feature pre-hardened cutter bodies to maximize tool life and performance.
