General mechanical engineering

Counterboring, solid drilling and precision boring at their very best

Drilling holes in mechanical engineering

What do users in general mechanical engineering expect from a machine tool? What does a drill need to look like today and in the future? How does it need to perform? These are questions we constantly ask ourselves here at Walter. Questions we answer with our drilling and reaming tools. With our drilling solutions marketed under the competence brands Walter and Walter Titex, we have the right answers.

Walter tools for counterboring, solid drilling and precision boring enjoy an excellent reputation among machining specialists. They are regarded as accurate, efficient and cost-effective both for machining steel and cast iron workpieces and for drilling in stainless materials and materials with difficult cutting properties. Our drills impress with their precision, productivity and excellent surface quality. This enables us to provide a real boost to your competitive edge.

Take, for example, our Xtra∙tec® Point Drill: The adherence to narrow hole tolerances (H8), self-centring ability and precision lands combine to provide you with surfaces that do not require any reworking. With its highly positive geometry, this drill can achieve a level of performance which is similar to that of a solid carbide drilling and reaming tool, even on less powerful machines.

Easy handling and rapid changeover of the exchangeable inserts ensure that exchangeable insert drills can be reliably and rapidly serviced directly in the machine, avoiding machine downtime.

The smaller and deeper the hole, the greater the challenge. Walter Titex tools are precise, efficient and cost-effective, whether as drilling solutions for universal use in a wide range of applications or as a very specific special solution.

For instance, the Walter Titex X∙treme Plus is a solid carbide high-performance drill for extremely high feed rates. With its two lands and the patented double-layer coating system, this tool offers extremely high cutting speeds, maximum tool life, excellent surface quality and maximum process reliability.

This means that increases in productivity of up to 100% in comparison to competitor tools are possible.
