Seco has introduced the Double Octomill™ 05, bringing 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 25 mm to 125 mm and provides optimal performance in applications requiring a maximum of 3 mm depth of cut.

The insert pockets of Double Octomill 05 incorporate a strong centre 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-degree negative angle to allow the use of double sided inserts, while the inserts themselves use a positive rake angle to minimise 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 3,2 mm wiper flat can be incorporated to provide roughing and finishing in a single operation.

All Double Octomill cutters make use of inserts that provide sixteen numbered cutting edges to minimise cost per edge and per part. The tools also feature pre-hardened cutter bodies to maximise tool life and performance.
