Seco Adds New Series of Solid Carbide Ball Nose CuttersApril 1, 2012
The latest Jabro-Solid JS530 Series of ball nose cutters from Seco is designed to bring increased flexibility, speed and efficiency to copy and profile milling, as well as slotting and side milling operations.
Consisting of the JS532, JS533 and JS534, the Jabro-Solid JS530 series is suitable for 2.5D and 3D machining applications in a range of materials, including steel, stainless steel, cast iron and titanium. All geometries are available in normal, long and extra long lengths.
Overall features of the JS530 series include radial relief for strong cutting edges, a polished Siron-A coating for reducing friction and heat buildup, increased core diameters related to the number of teeth for added stability and edge prep for a controlled wear pattern.
"Manufacturers incorporating the JS530 ball nose cutters benefit from stronger flutes for improved process stability, increased tool life, better surface finishes, accurate workpiece dimensions at higher feed rates and reduced re-work," said a company spokesperson.
JS532 employs two flutes and cutting diameters that range from .031" to .750", for roughing, semi-roughing, semi-finishing and finishing applications. JS533 features the same cutting diameters as the JS532 but uses three flutes for semi-roughing, semi-finishing and finishing applications. Lastly, JS534 handles semi-finishing and finishing applications with four flutes and a cutting diameter range of .063" to .750".
