Special tools for turning

Customized processes, fewer unit costs

​Limited resources, growth and innovation in mechanical engineering constantly present machining with new challenges, including for turning. In particular, interrupted cuts, precision molds, different materials and thin-walled components require specific cutting tool materials, particular geometries and tailored machining strategies and processes.

We want to give our customers an advantage in day-to-day competition. To do this, we opt for solutions such as specific combination tools for turning, which improve both quality and cost-effectiveness. In addition, coordinated machining processes and combination tools with multiple cutting edges save on tool changing and minimize chip-to-chip time.

As a user, this means that, as a result of optimally adapted processes and tools, you reduce unit costs, decrease machining time and, because of the saving on tool spaces, you can place sister tools on your turning center.
​We offer users a large selection of standard tool holders and indexable inserts for grooving and turning. Machining geometries (such as FP5, MP3, MP5, RP5) are constantly under redevelopment, giving optimum results in finishing and roughing. Unprecedented tool life can be achieved with our new Tiger∙tec® Silver coating.
The Walter-Capto™ range is the ideal tooling solution for fast tool changing. The unique polygonal profile allows extremely high stability and a degree of repeat accuracy or repeatability which is +/- 2 µm with respect to center height and tool length. Depending on the machining process, gauge cuts may no longer be necessary. The Walter Capto™ range comprises all the DIN ISO turning indexable inserts.
Walter offers a similarly broad spectrum of indexable inserts and holders for grooving. Whether for parting off, grooving or groove-turning, we have the right tool. The combination of Walter cutting tool materials and the appropriate grooving holders guarantees outstanding machining cutting data coupled with high process reliability and excellent surface quality.​
