Waukesha, WI – Walter, a leading cutting tool manufacturer, will showcase several new technologies in Booth W-1700 at IMTS '14, September 8-13, 2014, McCormick Place, Chicago, IL.
The exhibit will feature the new Walter Blaxx™ F5055 slitting cutter, the latest addition to its Blaxx™ family of high-performance milling cutters. The mill incorporates similar technology to the Walter Cut SX grooving system which is based on self-gripping, form-locking indexable inserts that provide ideal cutting force for the tool. The SX parting and grooving system also features coolant supply through the tool for optimum cooling of the cutting edge for all monoblock tools in the SX system.
Also featured will be Walter's expansion to its range of tough, reliable and long-life standard solid carbide deep-hole drills with the introduction of Walter Titex X•treme D40 and the X•treme D50 drills which provide 40xD and 50xD drilling depths respectively. Walter's XD technology (XD stands for extremely deep) enables holes to be drilled in one operation without pecking, in steel, cast iron or non-ferrous metals. The display will also feature a full lineup of solid carbide end mills.
New Tiger•tec® Silver high performance cutting material with new positive rake 7° and 11° geometries for steel machining along with new geometries for cast iron machining will also be on hand. The new geometries include a classic flat top with a stepped plateau, as well as a robust geometry for maximum process reliability, even for interrupted cuts.
Further, the company will feature its new range of Walter counterboring and precision boring tools for diverse machining applications. The new line has been expanded with Capto™ adaptors in addition to the existing NCT and ScrewFit adaptor program.
New Prototyp Prototex® Eco Plus from Walter, also on display, is a versatile through-hole tap that delivers superior performance and tool life. Designed for through-hole threads up to 3.5xD, it can be used on steel, stainless steel, and cast iron and non-ferrous metals such as aluminum and copper.
The exhibit will also highlight Walter Xpress and Walter Multiply. Walter Xpress is an incredibly fast ordering and delivery system for high-quality special tools. Walter Multiply is a multi-level networked and customized program that assists users in the optimization of tool selection from planning, manufacturing, maintenance, logistics and training.
A variety of cutting fluids and coolants available from Walter, including its newest low foaming options, will also be displayed.
