Walter's FM5 finishing and RM5 roughing indexable insert geometries are designed to deliver optimal cooling, longer tool life, and increased productivity in high-temperature alloy and stainless-steel machining. The inserts feature “jet guiding geometry,” or targeted cooling. Channels pressed in the rake face enable coolant to reach the cutting edge directly, underneath the chip, to maximize the cooling effect, increase tool life and optimize chip breaking for increased productivity and improved workpiece surfaces.

Three insert grades (WSM10S, WSM20S and WSM30S) feature PVD Al2O3 heat shield, and one (WMP20S) features CVD. All grades also have the company’s Tiger-tec Silver coating for maximum tool life.

The inserts’ double positive macro-geometry reduces notch formation and crater wear. Both the RM5 and FM5 geometries were designed to work with the coolant channel geometries of the company’s toolholders, but can also be used with standard ISO turning toolholders.

  • Taking The Fear Out Of Hard Turning

    To make the transition to hard turning, you'll need to switch from carbide to CBN inserts, but that is easier (and more economical) than you might think. It's making the jump to much higher surface speeds that might scare you off. It needn't. Here's why.

    Cutting holes by interpolating a face milling cutter may be a better process choice for many rough and even finish boring operations. Software improvements and better cutter designs allow expanding use of the versatile face mill for hole making.
