GPS 2.20 is online

Walter GPS, the world's most comprehensive recommendation software for metal cutting tools, has seen significant developments since it was launched three years ago. In the new version, GPS 2.20, the tool navigation offers new functions for selecting the right mill, new search options for finding a suitable drill and, in addition to all of this, a product-related search with improved GUI.

Always being able to find the most cost-efficient machining solution on your screen, tablet or even on your smartphone – that is what Walter GPS does. At the AMB industry trade fair 2014 in Stuttgart, Walter's developers presented new functions for the server-supported version, which users can start at www.walter-tools.com – given web access is available. The new release contains Walter's new and more productive, drilling, threading and milling tools that have been available since spring 2014.

Of course, as always, Walter GPS offers an interface to the Walter Tool Shop: Recommended tools are compiled in a wish-list and can be ordered or reordered with just one click. With recommendations for the best tool for shoulder milling, face milling, milling of closed grooves and pocket milling, Walter GPS covers almost every conceivable milling operation that is carried out in practice. The software tool not only recommends the possible cutting tools, but also the perfect machining strategy, including the cutting data, which can be printed out as a PDF document and can then be entered into the NC program on the turning machines.​
