What counts is competence

The world of metal machining will be getting together in Stuttgart for the AMB leading trade fair from September 16th to 20th. Tübingen-based Walter AG will be there as well, presenting its latest developments in drilling, milling, turning and threading – including a highlight, the likes of which, with one exception, has never been seen before: It drills in a clearly different kind of way.

Intelligent tool solutions that set the standards: That's what the specialists at Walter are always working towards. At the AMB 2014, users may once again marvel at the innovations with which Walter is making life easier for its customers in machining. One thing may be revealed in advance: Thanks to Walter, drilling is being given a new look. The Tübingen engineers are presenting the definition of a new performance class for drilling.

Alongside it, Walter is showing innovations across its entire product spectrum: The Walter Prototyp TC610/TC611 thread mills promise more performance, more process reliability and up to 40 percent longer tool life. The MC326 and MC726 high-performance mills are a worthy successor to the "Tough Guys" and offer twice the productivity – an increase in tool life of up to 100 percent while the same performance is maintained, or up to 50 percent higher cutting speeds in comparison to standard products on the market. Representing the new product line "Walter Supreme", four truly high-performance tools. In the Walter range, "Supreme" will stand for, and quite clearly represent, the maximum possible quality.

For grooving and parting off, process reliability has top priority: Grooving blades and internally cooled toolholders for the new, single-edged Walter Cut SX grooving system are now available in two additional dimensions and designs. The DC150 drill family enriches Walter's drilling range with a new product line supported on three major pillars: "Walter Perform" stands for precision, process reliability and cost efficiency. DC150 offers Walter top-quality for customers who, in order to machine cost-effectively, previously had to look towards other solutions.​
