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.
Economic efficiency is an important consideration when choosing tools for challenging metals.
Applying ceramic inserts is not a simple substitution of one cutting tool material for another. There are significant process considerations that shops should examine carefully in order to realize performance and tool life expectations from ceramic inserts. Here's a look at some of the ways they are used.
Consider these alternatives when conventional drilling can't do the job.
