Walter Intros Optimized Milling Cutter
Waukesha, WI Walter USA, LLC has introduced a new milling cutter designed with a medium pitch for use on lower horsepower machines and for difficult-to-fixture workpieces. The medium pitch allows the tool to deliver optimum performance in conditions of limited stability, and the milling cutter's other features enable it to boost productivity in a wide array of situations.
Other features include negative-shaped inserts with 14 cutting edges, seven per side. The inserts are pressed with a positive rake face which allows for freer cutting geometry that permits high cutting volumes.
An innovative insert clamping system locks the inserts securely in their seats. The clamping wedge pivots to the side after just a few turns of the clamping screw, allowing rapid insert change. Three geometry shapes provide for stable, universal and easy-cutting enabling adaptation to a range of different applications. Stable machines, workpieces and clamping arrangements are required for maximum cutting rates. However, feeds and speeds need to be scaled back at times, because workpieces with complicated shapes do not always permit rock-solid clamping. A tool such as the Xtra tec F4045 is especially helpful in these situations.
