Tool innovations in turning and grooving


​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Walter Turn W1010/1011-P/WL25 copy turning system – combines maximum stability with cost-efficiency.

  • High level of dimensional stability thanks to positive-locking, robust WalterLock connection 
  • A cost-effective approach: Lower tool costs due to three cutting edges 
  • Maximum tool life when copy turning 
  • High level of flexibility: Four indexable insert types fit in the same tool 
  • 50% higher indexing accuracy compared to ISO indexable inserts

G4011, G4014, G4041...-P groove turning holders – grooving and recessing, fast and universal.

  • Process reliability and reduced costs due to the unique DX positive engagement design (the cutting insert does not move; wear and breakage are minimised)
  • Tool change time reduced by 70% during insert indexing in the machine with SmartLock
  • Higher productivity due to improved chip breaking (no chip jams, longer tool life)

CBN grade WBH30 – developed for difficult challenges with interrupted cuts.

  • Excellent toughness due to good distribution of different CBN grain sizes 
  • Chemical stability provided by TiN binder prevents crater wear and flank face wear 
  • Wear-resistant in hardened steels due to 65% CBN content 
  • Reliable high-performance CBN substrate from the homogenous sintering process 
  • Higher feeds, surface quality and stability provided by wiper geometry
