New CBN grades from Walter improve user productivity in the turning of hardened steel and hi-temp superalloys
New CBN grades provide users with multiple benefits including accurate, high quality surfaces, long tool life, and a higher degree of process reliability.
Waukesha, WI—Walter has introduced new CBN grades for improved turning of hardened steel up to 65 HRC. These grades: WBH10C, WBH10, and WBH20, provide users with an array of benefits. High quality surface finish due to unique new wiper geometry (MW2) and long tool life with the new TiAlSiN coated CBN grade (WBH10C) are just some of these benefits. Inserts with laser etched chip breaker geometry TM-M2 are also available.
All inserts are ground for exceptional process reliability. These new grades are available in both positive and negative inserts and are suitable for both continuous and interrupted cuts.
Additionally, Walter has also introduced WBS10, a new CBN grade for finishing high-temperature superalloys in either continuous or interrupted cuts. Available in both positive and negative inserts, WBS10 features sharp “EM2” microgeometry and superfine grain with ceramic binder.
