MDT - General information

The Seco MDT (Multi Directional Turning) system consists of holders and inserts for external radial-, external axial- and internal machining.

The system can be used for

  • Turning
  • Profiling
  • Grooving
  • Parting off

Suitable applications are turning of parts with many different diameters, complicated profiles and grooves. For complex parts of this type several standard and special tools can be replaced by one Seco MDT tool. Savings can be achieved through fewer toolchanges and reduced tool stock.

Seco MDT has a unique insert clamping method - Secoloc. A combination of v top clamp and serrated contact surfaces between insert bottom and toolholder offers superb stability. The relative long inserts also increases the stability.

The excellent stability gives a number of benefits

  • Improved reliability
  • Increased cutting data
  • Good surface finish
  • Less risk of vibrations
  • Good repeatability (+/- 0,03)
