As machining jobs become more complex, tolerances tighter, delivery times shorter and skilled operators harder to find, shops need reliable access to advice that helps them find the most efficient tooling solutions.

After a user enters key information about their machines and application requirements into Suggest, they receive authoritative recommendations and cutting data in less than a minute.

Speed up setup time for increased productivity

Suggest provides real-time access to Seco product information and recommended cutting data for most Seco products, enabling shops to minimise cycle times.

"Any reduction in machining time helps shops maintain competitive advantages, but traditional cutting tool selection can be difficult and time consuming, especially for less-experienced operators," said Gerrit Kremer, global product manager, digital product services.

Obtain relevant alternatives

Because more than one tooling solution can address each machining situation, Suggest also lists alternative products that may be a better fit for a user’s unique prerequisites. For shops that need to optimise thread programming, Suggest accompanies application details with fully optimized CNC code.

Focus on customer convenience

Newly optimised for even easier use, Suggest helps shops get cutting data and tooling recommendations quickly and accurately. With this comprehensive solution to their questions about cutting strategies, customers can leverage the expertise of Seco Tools to achieve their best production results.
