New benchmark for steel machining

Walter introduces a new solid carbide high-performance milling cutter for steel machining: The MC341 Supreme. The initial offering will have six dimensions in the diameter range of 6–20 mm.

The new milling cutter is an absolute specialist when it comes to ISO P materials (secondary application ISO M) and combines proven features with new properties: The optimised cutting edge microgeometry ensures improved operational smoothness and a longer tool life. Back cutting prevents whitness marks from forming on the surface of the workpiece when the tool moves at the cutting depth.

One new feature is Walter's own WK40TZ grade which is applied in a special coating process. It allows for extremely high abrasion resistance, smooth, homogenous surface, excellent layer hardness and a high modulus of elasticity, resulting in a considerably longer tool life. The combination of both a high-performance coating and a proven geometry makes the MC341 Supreme a new benchmark in steel machining, particularly for tasks requiring high cutting speeds when machining large batch sizes. The milling cutters can be used for all machining operations, both dry and wet, and are impressive due to their soft cutting action, excellent chip transport and performance increases of up to 100%.
