Latest offerings from Walter tools

November 2014

THE DC150 family from Walter AG’s Walter Titex provides drilling tools for the tough everyday work of machining, in which theoretical cutting data is not everything. Important is what counts for the customer: precision, process reliability and cost-efficiency.

The DC150 can be universally used for all materials, in all industries and especially in general mechanical engineering.

“Our new Perform product line offers an extra benefit in terms of cost efficiency, for precisely smaller quantities. With the DC150, the user can change the tool appropriately early without suffering a bad conscience, thereby restoring 100 per cent process reliability, while still working cost-efficiently,” a company statement said.

“As a prelude to the new Perform product line, the DC150 drill family is Walter AG’s response to the demand for tools that combine high quality requirements with cost efficiency. At the start, there will be DC150 in the almost 400 principal dimensions for all adapters typically used in drilling, as a 3xD variant with external cooling and a 5xD variant with internal cooling.”

 The product line has been available from September.

Another development in Walter AG is the Walter Blaxx family indexable milling tools. With new cartridges for the F2010 face mill, Walter is making the performance of tangential indexable inserts available for adjustable face milling as well. With the new FR751M and FR752M cartridges, Walter is combining tried-and-tested technology with the latest developments in machining. A range which includes shoulder mills, porcupine cutters and slitting cutters, the Walter Blaxx family of cutters has been proving itself in the market for a good one and a half years now. The F2010 face mill with adjustable axial runout, on the other hand, is a classic among the Walter range. Its great advantage: thanks to its flexible cartridge construction, the tool is always up-to-date with the latest developments in machining technology.

The basic body remains the same, but the cartridges containing the insert seats can be easily exchanged. Tangential indexable inserts (LNHU) and Tiger•tec Silver cutting material technology form the backbone of Walter Blaxx. Up to 30 per cent higher feed rates are possible. What’s more, the cutters also possess precision-ground indexable inserts with a high level of accuracy, and high-precision tool bodies. Machinists using Walter Blaxx often no longer require a separate finishing tool.
