Walter Introduces New Close-pitch Solid Carbide Cutters for Maximum Productivity in Universal Finishing
New multi-tooth face milling cutters excel at finishing shoulders, pockets, walls, and cavities.
Waukesha, WI—Walter has introduced two new multi-tooth solid carbide face milling cutters, the MC128 Advance and the MD128 Supreme, for finishing and semi-finishing, with a secondary use for dynamic milling. These close-pitch cutters produce excellent surfaces, with minimal burr formation on the component primarily thanks to a 50° helix. Both excel at the finishing of shoulders, pockets, walls, and cavities. They feature protective chamfer or a corner radii with cylindrical shank. A ConeFit exchangeable head is also available with each.
The MC128 Advance boasts a wide diameter range of 1/4 -3/4 in. (2-25 mm) with a TiAIN coating for universal use. WJ30TF grade is available for ISO materials P, M, K, and S. The MC128 Advance is well suited for die and mold work as well as general metalworking. The MD128 Supreme provides 64% more tool life when compared to similar competitive cutters. It is a close pitch cutter providing maximum productivity thanks to more teeth, a longer cutting-edge length and material-specific grades. It is intended for semi-finishing and finishing, including finishing of additively manufactured components and of dynamically roughed components up to 3 × Dc (ConeFit 1.5 x Dc). Its material-specific grades are: WJ30RD (AITiN + ZrN) for ISO P material and WJ30RA (TiAIN + TiAI)for ISO materials M and S. This allows the grade to be adapted to the specific material group. Diameter range is 6-25 mm. With use in deep cavities, thanks to ConeFit tools, it can be successfully employed in medical technology, the aerospace, and energy industries, and die and mold.
The Walter lineup of products consists of three categories to its tools. Supreme indicates the highest level of technology and performance available. Perform tools are products that provide an economical solution with focused importance on price and Advance which indicates product efficiently balanced between price and performance.
