Seco Tools LLC

Seco Tools has introduced a modular toolholder system for manufacturers seeking to improve their productivity with Swiss-style machining. The system enables fast, easy, and repeatable insert indexing and tool changes outside of tight machine workspaces. The QC (Quick-Change) toolholders also feature Seco Jetstream Tooling and Jetstream Tooling Duo technology for optimal chip control, high-quality surface finishes and extended tool life.

For ease of use, the Seco QC modular toolholder allows users to remove both cutting heads and inserts as a single assembly, quickly index them and reinstall. Manufacturers may also use this system to exchange cutting heads and inserts with a second set for even greater efficiency. The QC cutting head also features double carbide pins for accurate, consistent and secure insert mounting and indexing.

Seco Jetstream Tooling technology precisely directs high-pressure coolant through the QC toolholder to the cutting zone. Seco Jetstream Tooling Duo, available on a selection of cutting heads, adds a second coolant channel to the underside of the holder. The second coolant channel can be switched off if needed for even more versatile machining.

The new QC toolholders include cutting heads for general ISO turning, MDT, threading and parting-off. Shanks are available in metric sizes of 10mm, 12mm, and 16mm, and inch sizes of 0.375", 0.500", and 0.625".
