Turning & Grooving

More efficient turning

Whether with conventional lathes and automatic lathes or with state-of-the-art CNC-controlled turning and machining centres: The name Walter stands for innovative turning tools that meet the highest demands for all production processes involved in metal turning. For ISO turning, grooving and parting off, as well as for thread turning. Precision turning tools, boring bars and parting blades from Walter are available with standard ISO square shanks and Walter CaptoTM toolholders for turning tools, as well as with all interfaces that are standard in turning applications. For you, this means: Maximum flexibility, stability, productivity and repeatability on any lathe. And top-class results for any workpiece.

Tailor-made for high-quality production

No matter what your machinery looks like or which machine tools you use – regardless of what materials you machine: The complex expertise that goes into each individual Walter turning tool really pays off. And this holds true for all production methods and turning applications. For steel or stainless steel workpieces as well as for aluminium and other non-ferrous metals or special alloys based on iron, nickel, cobalt and titanium. To achieve high wear resistance, long tool life and high cutting speeds when machining turned parts, all tools are made from specially alloyed cutting tool materials. Each of these are tailored to the material to be machined and have the best coatings for the material in question. The advantages for you: High process reliability, as well as an excellent surface finish quality and dimensional stability on the component. Other positive effects on tool life, feed per revolution and depth of cut are achieved by our innovative cooling methods such as Walter precision cooling directly at the effective machining area. But the sophisticated form and geometry of our turning tools also play a part in achieving maximum precision for your workpieces. In CNC turning as well as in conventional turning production processes. From the cutting edge up to the shank, from chip removal through to cooling – Walter tools are specifically made for your turning task and your operating conditions. Whether straight or curved turning tools, grooving or internal turning tools made from tool steel or high-speed steel (HSS), or turning tools made from solid carbide – through to indexable inserts with different positive or negative basic shapes. Walter offers you everything you need, so that you always have the ideal tool for all production methods when turning. Are you looking for the ideal solution for chip breaking problems, to extend the tool life or for demanding turning and recessing applications (regardless of whether this involves grooving or parting off)? Walter offers you the best combination of turning tool, toolholder and indexable insert for this. This includes not only application-specific cutting edge and flank face shapes or corner radii (e.g. in the basic shapes CNMG, DNMG and DCGT), but also different tool holders and extremely robust adaptors and boring bars.

Three product lines – for greater cost-effectiveness

The turning tools from the Walter Perform line offer you special advantages when it comes to using tools efficiently and cost-effectively in terms of tool costs and turning performance. Particularly where the production of small and medium batch sizes is concerned. The reasons for this are their suitability for a wide range of applications and their compatibility with various materials. These are advantages which result in particular from the combination with the excellent Walter Tiger·tec® and Tiger·tec® Silver cutting tool materials and varied indexable insert geometries. Combine savings with excellent performance data. Turning tools from Walter impress with their qualities: In standard turning applications as well as in the high-end sector. These turning tools are always the first choice when cutting speeds, tool life and workpiece quantities are critical.
