Optimized concentric and axial run-out values of cutter body keep vibration to minimum. Tiger·tecŪ Silver cutting tool material is available in 2 grades and 3 insert geometries. CE4 geometry is suited for medium-high feed rates, while universal SF5 suits low-medium feed rates, and CF6 targets low feed rates or non-ferrous metals.

The new Blaxx(TM) F5055 Slitting Cutter from Walter Delivers Exceptional Process Reliability

Press release date: May 30, 2014

The new Blaxx F5055 delivers high performance and reliability even at high speeds.

Waukesha, WI — Blaxx F5055 slitting cutter from Walter, the latest addition to its Blaxx™ family of high-performance milling cutters, features robust and accurate construction with superior performance and process reliability that characterizes the Blaxx line. In addition, the superior concentric and axial run-out values of the F5055 cutter body keeps vibration to a minimum. 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 productivity of the F5055 is further enhanced by Walter’s Tiger·tecŪ Silver cutting tool material. This advanced material is currently available in two grades, WSM33S and WSP43S, and in three insert geometries. The stable CE4 geometry is for medium to high feed rates and applications with good chip removal, the universal SF5 for most materials and low to medium feed rates, and the easy-cutting CF6 for good machining conditions and low feed rates or for non-ferrous metals. Walter supplies the F5055 in diameters of 63 to 250 mm for insert widths of 2.0 to 4.0 mm. Thanks to the universal performance of the cutting tool material, the F5055 is suitable for cast-iron, steel and stainless steel components.

Moreover, it can also handle materials with difficult cutting properties, making it suitable for the aerospace industry, where the production of large volumes of the highest quality components, typically made from difficult to cut material, demands tools with exceptional reliability.

Walter, a global leader in the metalworking industry with over 90 years of experience in precision cutting tools for milling, drilling, turning, boring and specialized tools, helps customers improve process reliability and increase productivity. With Regional Headquarters in Waukesha, WI, Walter markets its competence brands Walter Valenite, Walter Titex, Walter Prototyp and Walter Multiply through a strong network of distributors and field engineers across subsidiaries in the USA, Canada, Mexico, Brazil and Argentina.
