New solid carbide milling cutters increase output by up to 50 per cent

The milling cutters from Walter's new Advance product line increase tool life by up to 50%.

With this product line, the metal cutting specialist is setting a new benchmark in terms of cost effectiveness and profitability. This is very true of the MC251 Advance solid carbide milling cutters from Walter's Prototyp brand, which have the ideal geometry for machining stainless materials from material group ISO M an​d for secondary applications in ISO S materials. The new MC251 tool family is designed to operate most efficiently on machines having only an external coolant supply.

The MC251 product family comprises a tough carbide substrate (WK40RC), which has been specifically designed to provide a high level of machining reliability. And because the coating is made from a combination of titanium aluminium nitrate (TiAlN) and aluminium titanium (AlTi), not only is the tool's service life extended significantly, but it also exhibits particularly good anti adhesion properties, which means that the formation of build-up on the cutting edge is not significant.
