New Seco Threading Grade Excels in Critical Parts and Materials

To prevent threading chips from ruining critical parts in the final phases of production, the advanced coating and tool geometry of the new TTP2050 threading insert grade from Seco Tools combine to provide efficient, secure, stable performance, along with effective chip control.

The TTP2050 grade’s nano-laminate PVD coating increases tool life on inserts and produces high running parameters for increased threading productivity, giving it the extreme wear resistance to machine cast irons, tool steels, stainless steels and other challenging steels. Made from alternating layers of titanium aluminum nitride (TiAlN) and titanium silicon nitride (TiSiN), this chemistry outperforms the general-purpose coatings often used on threading tools. At the same time, the TTP2050 grade offers the tool geometry to increase productivity in these challenging materials.

The TTP2050 threading grade is available in 44 profiles with geometry -A, in 11 mm and 16 mm (0.433″ and 0.650″) sizes. The new grade comes in both internal and external threading for all standard, common thread profiles.
