Grooving, Parting Inserts Ensure Reliable Handling

The Walter Cut MX grooving and parting tool is said to improve accuracy, stability and process reliability.

The Walter Cut MX grooving and parting tool is said to improve accuracy, stability and process reliability. The indexable inserts boast four cutting edges each. Inserts are offered in three different geometry types (GD8, CF5 and RF5) and with Tiger-tec Silver PVD coating. The self-aligning, tangential clamping of the MX system and the dowel pin location in its insert seat result in greater repeatability, stability and process reliability. Unlike comparable systems, it is impossible to fit the inserts incorrectly, according to the company, which makes handling reliable.

Walter Cut MX geometries offer good chip control, particularly the CF5 sintered geometry. The inserts themselves have four precision-ground cutting edges. Cutting depths of up to 6 mm and cutting widths from 0.8 to 3.25 mm are possible in the standard range.

Due to the extremely precise center height and the cutting edges, the system is ideal for precision grooves, circlip grooves and small diameters. This makes the tool particularly advantageous for small parts manufacturers with high accuracy requirements. Only one type of cutting insert is required for both the left- and the right-hand toolholders. Furthermore, if one cutting edge breaks, users can continue working with the rest.
