Seco Tools Australia has introduced a new Jet blade that further enhances the heat removal capabilities of its Jetstream Tooling Duo technology.
With Seco’s new highly rigid 150.10 Jet blade, the two coolant jets directed to optimal positions in the cutting zone enable users to achieve longer tool life, increased productivity and higher cutting speeds in parting-off operations that involve superalloys and stainless steels.
Made of high-speed steel and incorporating rigidly clamped inserts, the patented 150.10 Jet blade greatly reduces lateral cutting forces and secures straight section surfaces. The blade’s use of Jetstream Tooling Duo technology involves two outlets, one above and one below the insert, to direct the coolant straight to the cutting zone for quick and effective heat removal.
At high coolant pressures, the combination of high velocity, pressure, flow and direction provides a better cooling option over flooding the tool while also ensuring proper chip formation and evacuation.
The 150.10 Jet blade comes in two different sizes and widths ranging from 2mm to 6.35mm. It can be combined with a broad range of grades and chip breaker options to handle a wide variety of operations and workpiece materials. Accessories are available for an easy and flexible connection to the turret for coolant supply.
