TP0501 requires stable conditions to provide high performance. It provides lasting dimensional stability under high thermal loads. TP0501 will provide exceptional benefits when applied to high alloy steels.
The increased heat resistance of TP0501 makes it an excellent complement to Seco’s other steel cutting grades, TP1501, TP2501 and TP3500.
The TP0501 grade delivers the outmost steel turning performance in high-alloyed steels in particular, under non-coolant conditions. In addition the grade offers properties for successful machining of Gray cast irons as well.
A balance of high edge hardness and toughness boosts the wear resistance of TP0501 inserts, especially for more stable high-temperature, long continuous cutting conditions along with those involving limited toughness demands. The grade is designed for application in all steels but in particular high-alloy steels. TP0501 inserts deliver higher metal removal rates, long tool life, dimensional stability and superior surface finishes.
