Wide range for hard machining

With the MC183, MC187, MC281, MC480, MC482, MC388 and MC089 ISO H milling cutters from the Advance line, Walter is now launching seven new solid carbide milling cutter families specially tailored to the requirements of hard machining.

The mini and multi-flute, shoulder/slot, ball-nose copy and high-feed milling cutters are suitable for ISO H materials up to 63 HRC in particular. The milling cutters achieve a long tool life and excellent surface quality as a result of the new WB10TG grade developed by Walter. Additionally, a special performance-enhancing geometry enables high metal removal rates.

The wide selection makes a comprehensive range of applications possible for users. The Advance milling cutters can be applied flexibly for large or small component dimensions and for various milling strategies, e.g. HPC roughing, HSC finishing, high-feed milling and for machining 3D contours with the ball-nose cutters. Their special properties make these high-end milling cutters for hard machining particularly beneficial for users with medium-sized batches and high quality standards. They will also benefit users seeking to use an efficient tool with excellent performance for a very good price/performance ratio. Typical areas of application include mould and die making, as well as general mechanical engineering.
