Inserts for Steel Turning Applications
Walter’s Tiger-tec Silver turning inserts are designed to reduce machining times and increase process reliability, particularly in steel turning applications, the company says.
Ceramic Grades for Super Alloy Turning Operations
The WIX10 and WWS20 complementary ceramic grades from Walter are designed for turning high-temperature super alloys such as Inconel, Waspaloy, Stellite and other heat-resistant materials that can create create greater stresses and increased wear in carbide tools.
Two-Volume Catalog on Cutting Tools
Walter USA offers a two-volume comprehensive catalog highlighting its rotary and turning cutting tools.
Insert Geometries Designed for Turning
Walter USA has added four cutting tool insert geometries to its Tiger-tec Silver for turning family.
Walter USA Opens New Technology Center
A new 40,000-square-foot technology center complements the company’s efforts to be a competency leader in the cutting tool industry.
Cutting Tool Technology with New Grades and Geometries
Walter’s Tiger-tec Silver turning tool is designed to reduce crater and flank wear and plastic deformation.
Walter to Expand North American HQ
Cutting tool manufacturer Walter USA has announced plans to build a new North American Technology Center at its headquarters in Waukesha, Wisconsin. Featuring demonstration and application trial areas, the 40,000-square-foot facility will be designed to help educate customers, channel partners and employees on the company’s products.
New President at Walter
Milko Merlo has become president of cutting tool supplier Walter AG, parent company of Walter USA (Waukesha, Wisconsin). He succeeds former president Andreas Evertz, who will become president of Sandvik Machining Solutions, of which Walter is a part. Most recently, Mr.
Solid Carbide Drills Available in Non-Coolant-Through Versions
Walter USA has expanded its line of Walter Titex X-treme high-performance solid carbide drills to include non-coolant-through versions, designed to cover the same application areas and provide increased performance and tool life.
Milling Grade Designed for Faster Metal Removal
The Tiger-tec Silver WKP25S indexable milling grade from Walter is designed to maximize productivity by enabling increased feed and cutting speeds, and increased rates of metal removal, particularly in the machining of steel and castings.
Making Music while Making Chips
Machinists are creative people. So why should it surprise us that they are musically inclined?
Grade Reduces Machining Times in Steel and Cast Iron
The company offers the Tiger▪tecSilver to its entire flagship milling families.Suited for milling steel and cast iron, the WKP35S grade uses a CVD technology that provides the hardness (wear resistance) of CVD grades and the toughness (crack resistance) formerly realized only in PVD grades.
See The Tool's Value Instead Of Its Cost
This company is embracing high-performance tooling on its turning centers. The "sticker shock" is no reason not to do this. In one case, though, the shop found a way to limit the cost of the tool and increase productivity at the same time.
Thread Milling On A Tiny Scale
Machining internal threads in difficult materials is challenging, especially when hole diameters are small. Thread milling offers advantages for these applications that are important to consider.
Insert Provides Long Life, Short Cycle Times
Novatek, a manufacturer of diamond products used in the oil and gas, mining, construction and other industries, needed to reduce both costs and production time on a job involving very large workpieces. The Tiger-Tec black and gold WPP10 insert from Walter USA, which features an aluminum oxide coating designed to prolong tool life at high surface footages, helped the company increase feeds and speeds and create smaller, more manageable chips.
Modular Design Enables Precision Boring Over Large Diameter Range
The B4035 boring head features an optoelectronic adjustment measuring system and digital display with 0.0001" accuracy in the diameter range of 0.118" to 4.882" (3 to 124 mm). Maintenance-free automatic balance compensation and flexible screw fit connections make this tool suitable for virtually all spindle adaptat
Cutting Tool Manufacturer Helps Growing Shop Improve Efficiency
While nearly always desirable, growth can bring its own set of challenges. A case in point is Tri-K Machining, a shop that is seemingly on the fast track to success. Business has increased by more than 300 percent during the past 12 months. However, management soon realized that keeping up with this added work
Reducing Production Costs Keeps Processes In-House
When the Fendt Component production department identified the need to reduce the production costs associated with the development of transmission housings by 50 percent, it realized that failure to meet this target would require outsourcing, resulting in the loss of a considerable number of jobs. A team consisting of a tool manufacturer, a machine supplier and component production specialists met this challenge, with tooling playing an instrumental role.
Facilitating Faster Speeds And Shorter Cycle Times With Cutter Implementation
“Perfection is a goal every business strives for, but when it’s part of your name, you feel even more responsible for it,” says Scott Gauerke, owner/president of Perfect Patterns, an Appleton, Wisconsin-based manufacturer of patterns and permanent molds for a number of industries, including automotive, light commercial and agricultural.
Drill Reduces Machining Time, Increasing Capacity
This company specializes in developing electromagnetic systems with switching and/or sensor capabilities. Typical product applications include general mechanical engineering and plant construction; automotive engineering equipment and materials handling equipment; and automation, medical and power technologies.
Competitive Testing Process Helps Manufacturer Take The Bite Out Of Cycle Times
To find a line of indexable inserts that would improve cycle times and provide increased tool life, this company invited eight tool manufacturers to test their inserts on turning applications on ductile iron workpieces machined at the company's facility.
