Walter Cut MX System grooving inserts and G3011/G3021 holders feature decreased downtime and boost productivity.

Waukesha, WI — The Walter Cut MX grooving inserts deliver new, higher levels of flatness and surface quality with their tangentially-mounted arrangement in the G3011/G3021 holders. Four cutting edges per insert multiply user productivity and if one cutting edge breaks, the other cutting edges remain usable.

These MX grooving inserts, with widths from 0.031-0.127 in. (0.80 -3.25mm) and cutting depth of 0.24 in (6 mm), feature self-aligning tangential clamping. This self-aligning clamping feature between MX inserts and G3011/G3021 holders permits fast and user-friendly replacement of cutting edges with optimum accuracy during changeover. Also, the inserts cannot be engaged incorrectly into the holders.

Tool life is substantially improved due to the Tiger·tec® Silver PVD carbide grades. The carbide exhibits excellent toughness and allows a reduction in machining time through its optimized microstructure. Also, with Tiger·tec® Silver PVD grades there is greatly reduced wear because of the integrity of the coating that is not susceptible to thermal stress variations during wet and dry machining.

The productivity of Walter Cut MX grooving inserts is enhanced by the Walter Cut G3011/G3021 toolholders which provide longer tool life and higher productivity with precision cooling on the rake face. Additionally, the dowel pin location feature of these holders insures correct insert seating and maximum indexing accuracy.
