The WCK10 ceramic cutting grade from Walter USA is designed for roughing gray cast iron at high cutting speeds with either continuous or interrupted cutting. The inserts deliver improved productivity, process reliability and longer tool life due to its wear-resistant Si3N4 ceramic cutting material.

Because the ceramic cutting material enables higher cutting speeds and higher cutting volumes than traditional solid carbide, production time and costs are reduced. In addition, the inserts feature a negative chamfer for longer tool life, stable dimple clamping and the ability to handle both wet and dry machining. Users also benefit from their attractive price-performance ratio, according to the company.


  • Inserts For Difficult Materials

    Economic efficiency is an important consideration when choosing tools for challenging metals.

  • Rolling Threads Has Advantages

    With macros and canned cycles resident in the CNC on most contemporary turning centers, single point turning of OD threads can seem like almost a default process decision. However, for numerous applications, OD thread rolling has inherent advantages as an alternative to cutting threads.

  • Tips for Tapping Titanium Alloys

    Creating threaded holes in titanium alloys calls for proper techniques based on an understanding of both the properties of these materials and the peculiarities of the tapping process.
