Seco Tools Introduces First Product Line for Composites Machining

12 November 2010

Seco Tools has launched its new line of Jabro routers specifically developed for the machining of composite materials, featuring five different solid carbide styles with cylindrical shank diameters that range from 3.0 to 20.0mm.

We are excited to enter this new area of material application, said Seco Jabro product manager Bill Bogue. Our efforts in R&D have created a high-performing choice of solutions that addresses the problems inherent in composite machining to help shops improve both the quality and productivity of their operations. Each of the routers features a DURA high performance CVD diamond coating, which is thicker than traditional CVD coatings. The DURA coating provides an outstanding thermal and abrasive barrier to effectively manufacture composite materials.

The JC840 Left-Right Helix Router handles slotting operations in carbon- and/or glass-fiber composites. The JC850 Light Helix Ballnose Router is for 3D copy milling of components such as landing gear and is suitable for carbon fibre PEEK type materials. The JC860 Honeycomb Router perform slotting/side milling of honeycomb materials with carbon and/or glass top layers and paper and or/aluminium honeycomb. The JC870 Diamond Cut Router acts as a trouble shooter in slotting applications in various layered carbon and/or glass fibre materials. And, the JC880 Light Helix Router is for maximum material removal in slotting and side milling of carbon fibre and PEEK-type materials.
