Greer, SC — Walter has introduced the Walter Turn toolholder with precision cooling and screw clamping (S…-P). Coolant is targeted on the rake face and flank face to maximize the cooling effect. In addition, rake face cooling helps break and control chips, and double flank face cooling directly at the cutting edge extends tool life.

Users can apply a coolant pressure from 145 to 2,175 psi (10 to 150 bar). Improved chip breaking occurs when the coolant pressure is greater than 580 psi (40 bar). Optimum coolant application increases tool life by 30% to 150%.

The toolholder features a flexible coolant connection: Direct coolant transfer to a VDI tool adaptor (A21XX-P) or via a coolant hose set with G1/8″ thread (K601). The turning toolholder provides a universal adjustment range.

The toolholder accepts CCMT3…, DCMT3… and VBMT3… (CCMT09…, DCMT11… and VBMT16…) indexable inserts. The shank dimensions are 0.75″ × 0.75″, 1″ × 1″, 20 mm × 20 mm and 25 mm × 25 mm.

Suitable applications include longitudinal turning, facing and profile turning of components with a small diameter. The Walter Turn turning toolholders are an excellent choice for machining stainless steel, high-temperature alloys and steel (ISO M, S and P workpiece groups).

Potential benefits include the ability to cut at higher speeds and longer tool life thanks to the flank face cooling. The toolholder enables the production of short, manageable chips thanks to the rake face cooling. Because coolant nozzles no longer need to be adjusted manually, end users will see improved machine availability and ease of operation.
