WINDPOWER 2012 was the stage for the North American debut of Seco Tools Inc.’s (Troy, Mich.) new 335.25 Disc Milling Cutter. Designed for large cut widths (1 inch/25 mm), the cutter’s coated and hardened body reportedly maximizes tool life, reliability and accuracy, and it is available with integrated coolant holes. Inserts developed for the cutter feature positive-geometry edge preparation to reduce cutting forces and improve chip flow, while a built-in wiper flat maximizes the surface finish. A full range of insert geometries and grades ensures easy and productive application to all types of materials used in wind turbines.
