Walter USA, LLC has expanded the capabilities of its Walter Blaxx M3024 heptagonal milling cutter with new wiper inserts. The inserts, which have two right-hand and left-hand cutting edges, were specifically developed for the Blaxx M3024, enabling its use for finishing operations.

Semi-finishing and finishing can be combined into a single operation using one tool, without adjusting the finishing cutting edges. This reduces the number of tools required, as well as machining time.

The combination of milling cutter and indexable inserts is well-suited to the multi-step production of components such as exhaust turbochargers or turbine blades, as well as other components made from stainless steel, cast materials or steel. Additional features of these new negative-indexable wiper inserts include process reliability and soft cutting action thanks to their positive cutting-edge geometry.
