Dimensional accuracy, no need for readjustment, and mirror finishes are advantages of the new grade.

Waukesha, WI — The new Cermet WEP10 indexable turning inserts from Walter deliver long tool life and high productivity. Their fine-grain titanium carbide substrate with Ni/Co binder produces a stable cutting edge. Combined with an extremely hard TiCN outer layer, this grade provides multiple advantages during finishing operations when compared to carbide inserts.

These advantages include increased tool life due to its high wear resistance, no necessity for readjustments, and maximum dimensional accuracy. In addition, Cermet WEP10’s FP4 soft-cutting insert geometry is suitable for finishing a range of different materials. The FP4 geometry, with its unique edge preparation is capable of yielding mirror finish surfaces at high or low cutting speeds. A variety of insert shapes are available.
