The Swedish tool manufacturer Seco Tools has optimised one of its most successful inventions, Minimaster, the tool system for milling operations with exchangeable fluted inserts. The Minimaster Plus® for significantly higher precision and process security has been presented to the market at the AMB 2014.
With the highly productive Minimaster Plus tool system with replaceable fluted inserts, there is no longer a need for re-measurement of tool length. The Minimaster Plus product range offers a large selection of shanks and inserts especially for demanding milling operations.
Efficience as key word
Productivity, precision and full flexibility are the key focus points of the Minimaster Plus. The broad range of steel and carbide shanks as well as square shoulder and ball nose inserts was increased by special high-feed inserts for highly dynamic application. These inserts feature internal coolant channels which ensure that Minimaster Plus cools quickly and deals efficiently with chip evacuation. The range is also enhanced by special three-flute inserts in short versions for higher feeds.
Security as key word
Minimaster Plus was specially developed by Seco with the aim of delivering higher product security. This is ensured by the high precision and security of the interface offering a run out precision of approximately 10 µm. Between the exchangeable carbide insert and the shaft, an internal thread and an external taper offer high reliability, while an internal taper and threaded centre pin both ensure additional reliability. Due to the axial stop a high repeatability is achieved when replacing the insert so that the replacement can be done without removing the tool from the spindle. This will gain valuable production time and increase productivity as re-measurement of the tool length is no longer necessary.
