The Jabro range of solid carbide cutters for high-speed medical machining and other aggressive milling strategies can shorten cycle times on knee implants by as much as 50 percent, according to the company. The tools' continuous grades and coatings are said to reduce or eliminate the need for polishing or fine finishing operations. These features also pro- mote process stability and long tool life, according to the company. The product line includes nine advanced geometries and 39 tools, most of which are part of the Jabro Tornado high-speed cutting family. Each geometry is designed for particular applications in the machining of tibial tray and femoral knee implant components. Because these tools are designed to machine cobalt-chrome (CoCr) and 3D-printed Ti6Al4V ISO-S12 parts, they can also improve machine performance for other med- ical implant components, including hip replacements and bone plates, according to the company. | Seco Tools LLC 248-528-5200
