Slideshow: Trends and Technology at IMTS 2016
The size and scope of a show like IMTS makes it impossible to cover everything of interest, but here's a taste of the technology and trends we were taking note of this year.
Ramping Cutter Promotes Process Reliability Even at High Speeds
The M2131 Sky-tec ramping cutter from Walter USA brings improved process reliability to the machining of nonferrous metals such as the aluminum-wrought alloys or aluminum-lithium alloys often used in aircraft structural components.
Walter USA Appoints Marketing Director for Americas, UK
Kurt Ludeking has been with Walter since 2010.
Double-Sided Inserts for Rough Turning Applications
Walter has introduced double-sided ISO indexable inserts with RP7 geometry, providing maximum process reliability in rough turning by combining a ground contact surface with an optimized profile that has a tailored protective chamfer to guard against fracturing.
Insert System Reduces Tool, Storage Costs
Walter’s M4000 program uses an insert system that has a single, basic-shape compatibility with every M4000 body.
Mobile App Helps Users Identify, Correct for Tool Wear
Walter USA’s wear optimization app, which works on all current mobile devices and operating systems, enables users to identify specific forms of wear on indexable-insert and round-tool solid carbide applications, from milling, drilling and threading to turning, grooving and parting.
Boring Cartridge Increases Metal Removal Rates
Walter has broadened its line of boring tools with the introduction of the B3220 boring cartridge for axial-radial offset roughing (ARS), expanding on previous methods that were either symmetrical or asymmetrical.
Drill Insert’s Geometry Improves Performance in Cast Materials
Walter’s P6005-WKK45C point drill insert is designed for performance and cost-effective drilling of ISO K cast materials.
Blind-Hole Taps Handle Stainless Steel Applications
TC142 blind-hole taps from Walter USA are designed for machining stainless steels and ISO-M materials.
Octagonal Face Mills Achieve Quality Surface Finish on Cast Iron
Walter USA’s M2025 and M2026 octagonal finishing face mills are designed to deliver high surface quality on large cast iron components.
Orbital Thread Mills Promote Process Reliability
Walter USA’s Unified National Fine (UNF) orbital thread mills are available in 2×D and 3×D models with large shank diameters promoting vibration-free machining, even with a long clamping length.
Walter USA Redesigns Web Platform for Mobile Devices
The site now uses responsive design, accommodating viewing and ordering using a smartphone or tablet as well as a PC.
Blind-Hole, Through-Hole Taps Handle Range of Materials
Walter USA’s high-performance Prototyp TC115 and TC216 taps are designed to make blind-hole and through-hole threads, respectively.
Indexable Insert Grade Designed for Productive Steel Machining
The Tiger-Tec Silver WPP05S insert grade is a wear-resistant, indexable grade from Walter USA said to deliver high performance and productivity in steel machining, particularly for roughing forged components and long production runs.
Taps Boost Performance, Reduce Costs
Walter USA offers a pair of versatile, high performance and cost-effective taps: the Walter Prototyp TC115, designed for blind-hole threads, and the TC216 for through-hole threads.
Drill Line Adds Clamping System, Indexable Inserts
Walter USA has expanded its family of Xtra-Tec insert drills with the addition of the Walter Capto clamping system and indexable inserts with Tiger-Tec Silver cutting tool material.
Modular Boring Tool Delivers Flexibility
Walter USA’s B3230 Walter Capto fine boring tool is suitable for standard as well as reverse machining and features internal coolant supply up to the cutting edge.
Lightweight Boring Tool Eases Tool Changes
The PrecisionMedium B4031.C Light Weight Solution (LWS) boring tool from Walter USA is equipped with the company’s Capto modular toolholding interface to ease handling, speed tool changes and enhance precision.
Deep-Hole Drills Avoid Pecking
Walter USA has added the Titex X-treme D40 and D50 to its line of solid carbide deep-hole drills.
Through-Coolant Capability Reduces Cycle Time
Aided by Walter Titex tooling and a new higher-rpm machine tool from Fryer, Toolmasters Inc. was able to cut cycle time on a complex die set.
