With its soft, positive cutting action, the new Walter BLAXX M3024 heptagon cutter achieves high metal removal rates, even on relatively low-performance machines.
With its soft, positive cutting action, the new Walter BLAXX M3024 heptagon cutter achieves high metal removal rates, even on relatively low-performance machines. The 14 cutting edges per indexable insert keep cutting-tool material costs low. The carbide shim provides optimal insert support, thus offering a high level of security when operating with high feed rates; coupled with the tough, negative indexable inserts, this combination affords the highest level of process reliability. Indexable inserts for the Walter BLAXX heptagon cutter are available in two CVD-coated Tiger·tec® Silver grades (WKP25S and WKP35S) for machining steels and cast irons. Not only this, but they are also available in three PVD-coated grades (WSM35S, WKK25S and WSP45S) for machining steels, cast irons and stainless steels. The tool is perfect for machining components such as exhaust turbochargers and turbine blades. Another new addition is the Walter BLAXX M3016 heavy-duty cutter, which also features Tiger·tec® Silver technology.
Indexable inserts are available in CVD-coated grades WKP25S and WKP35S and in PVD-coated grades WKK25S and WSP45S for machining steels and cast irons. Tough, tangential indexable inserts offer a high level of process reliability, and the support seat’s emergency cutting function protects the body in the event of insert breakage. With four cutting edges per indexable insert, the M3016 offers both low cutting-tool material costs and incredibly high metal removal rates. The positive cutting edge geometry allows for a soft cutting action, and the inclusion of a corner radius in the design affords maximum stability. The new tool is ideal for roughing large workpieces in any steel and cast iron material at incredibly high metal removal rates.
