Gearbox housings for passenger cars today are usually manufactured out of aluminum. For heavy trucks, construction machines and agricultural equipment, however, cast iron still continues to be used as the material for the housing.
The challenge for the machining industry in this regard is compliance with tight tolerance specifications, which applies in particular to the reference dimensions. Despite the challenges arising from the design of the housing in terms of stability and tool clamping, the main concern is to manufacture a high-quality component in as short a machining time as possible.
With our high-performance Walter Valenite PCD tools, Walter Titex solid carbide drills, and Walter Prototyp threading tools, we provide you with a strong trio of tools for machining these complex components with precision and cost-effectiveness. In addition, the necessary service modules for efficient series production are covered by Walter Multiply.
