In spite of the enormous technological progress made in recent years, today we are faced with the challenge of providing complex machining operations which are both cost-effective and reliable for a huge variety of components.
In the past, this was a problem that could only be solved by means of complex tool designs and time-consuming processes. Not only this, but it was not possible to carry out the individual machining operations on conventional machine tools.
In answer to this, Walter offers users extremely efficient special tools: Medium-actuated (using coolant or compressed air) and cross-feed-driven hole machining tools. The basic function here is identical for all the tooling systems mentioned: A linear machining movement is converted to a radial machining movement using a medium or cross-feed.
