Walter's D4120 Drill Speeds Chip Removal
Walter USA’s D4120 is an indexable insert drill from the P484 family that is designed for wear-resistance and longer tool life.
Walter USA’s D4120 indexable insert drill from the P484 family is designed for wear-resistance and longer tool life. The drill’s polished flute surfaces facilitate chip removal, process reliability and close hole tolerance. A wiper cutting edge on the periphery insert, flutes designed for continuous chip evacuation and a coolant-through system (one per cutting edge) also contribute to these benefits.
Cutting costs are kept lower because of the inserts’ four cutting edges and the long tool life characteristics provided by Tiger Tec Silver grades, the company says. The product is suitable for ISO material groups:
One of the most common methods of tapping in use today on CNC machines is 'rigid tapping' or 'synchronous feed tapping.' A rigid tapping cycle synchronizes the machine spindle rotation and feed to match a specific thread pitch. Since the feed into the hole is synchronized, in theory a solid holder without any tension-compression can be used.
Reducing cutting fluid use offers the chance for considerable cost savings. Tool life may even improve.
