Walter presents new face milling cutters

With the M5009 and 5012 face milling cutters, Walter is continuing to develop the Xtra tec XT family and is bringing tools for the 12mm insert size to the market to accompany those already available for the 9mm insert size.

Both insert sizes can be used in milling cutters with different approach angles: With an approach angle of 45° and thanks to its higher number of teeth, the M5009 (diameter 25–160mm) is ideal for reduced depths of cut (5 or 6.5mm) and suitable for reduced machining conditions, for example to increase productivity in mass production. The M5012 (diameter 32–160mm) has a steep approach angle of 88°, making it possible to work with larger machining conditions and depths of cut (8 or 10mm) and is less affected by interference contours.

An additional factor is the special aluminium geometry. Combined with the Walter Tiger tec cutting tool materials, this increases tool life and cost-efficiency. In addition, the positive, soft cutting action, even on low-performance machines, guarantees good results.
