Walter USA's MC232 Perform Milling Cutter Increases Edge Stability
Walter USA’s MC232 Perform series of solid carbide milling cutters feature a corner radius and reduced neck.
Walter USA’s MC232 Perform solid carbide milling cutters feature a corner radius and reduced neck to improve performance in difficult-to-access geometries. The corner radius is also said to improve tool life by increasing edge stability, while the reduced neck enables milling at a wider variety of cutting depths.
Available in diameters ranging from 1/8" to ¾" and from 2 to 20 mm, the MC232 can be used for most typical milling applications such as shoulder milling, slotting, pocket milling, helical plunging and ramping in various materials. According to the company, the tool is best suited For small and medium batches of steel, stainless steel and cast iron parts.
Simple process considerations can increase your productivity in milling titanium alloys.
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.
The right choices in tooling and technique can optimize the thread turning process.
