Tiger-tec for Steel, indexable inserts for steel turning, will be introduced by Walter USA in September, 2005.
By applying a new carbide substrate and a multi-layer coating, the company says it is able to offer the same benefits for steel turning that Tiger-tec inserts have provided for cast iron. Potential benefits include increased tool life and productivity, as well as improved process security.
The line, which is available in three cutting materials—grades WPP10, WPP20 and WPP30—and in eight ISO insert shapes (negative basic shape), is recommended for roughing and finishing virtually all types of current steels, including unalloyed structural steels and high-alloyed tool steels.
