Walter is launching a new system specially designed for grooving along a shoulder with the G3051-P groove turning holder and the new MX22-2L/R indexable inserts.
An insert installation position inclined by 3° and new grooving inserts with a level design on the component side (as left and right versions) enable deep grooving along a shoulder – with no end-face axial contact thanks to the grooving insert. The groove turning holder in new shank sizes of 12 to 25 mm is designed with Walter precision cooling. The precision-ground, four-edged indexable inserts are available with new GD8 and VG8 geometries. The VG8 geometry has been specifically developed for finishing operations behind a collar.
Thanks to reduced space requirements, enormous savings on material are possible in mass production compared to conventional V-style turning inserts. The G3051-P grooving system can be used on CNC lathes and multi-spindle machines, as well as automatic lathes. It allows for cutting depths of up to 5 mm and insert widths from 1.5 to 3 mm. This is why it is particularly suited to series production of smaller components, such as camshafts in the automotive industry, but also for precision parts in the medical technology industry. Additional properties of the system: Large contact surfaces and patented dowel pin location in MX indexable inserts; they provide a high degree of stability, precision and indexing accuracy. Tangential arrangement of the grooving inserts, which results in outstanding flatness and surface quality. Long tool life and high cost efficiency, thanks to Tiger·tec® Silver technology and savings on material with the VG8 geometry.
