GX24-WDN10 inserts

Walter USA has added polycristalline diamond (PCD) grooving inserts to its Walter Cut GX grooving system. These straight-edge (F1) and full-radius (M1) geometries are designed to excel at grooving in aluminum and titanium alloys, enabling high cutting speed, lengthening tool life and improving surface quality in grooving, parting and recessing operations. The inserts are said to be ideal for aerospace, medical device and automotive applications.

The wear-resistant WDN10 PCD grade provides high hardness, a low coefficient of friction and minimal heat distortion. This helps result in maximum productivity and cost efficiency in the high-speed machining of nonferrous materials, the company says. 

The GX24-WDN10 inserts feature chipbreaker geometry, laser-marked ISO and ANSI corner-radius designation, and widths ranging from 0.078" to 0.118" (2 to 8 mm).
