New B3220 Boring Cartridge from Walter for Axial-Radial Offset Roughing Increases Metal Removal Rates, Saving Users Time and Money

New boring cartridge decreases the need for additional steps and tools while providing good chip control, stable machining conditions, and heightened reliability.

Waukesha, WI -- Walter has broadened its line of boring tools with the introduction of the B3220 Boring Cartridge for axial-radial offset roughing (ARS), expanding on previous methods that were either symmetrical or asymmetrical. This versatile new tool, designed for use with the Walter B3220 but which can be used with the Walter B3221 and B3224 boring tools as well, brings the capabilities of axial-radial offset roughing (ARS) to an array of new applications.

By doubling the tool’s cutting widths, the new cartridge increases metal removal rates, saving time and, thus, money. Costs are further decreased since the B3220 Boring Cartridge saves users the need for additional processing steps and tools. In addition, the tool provides good chip control, stable machining conditions, and heightened process reliability.

All common ISO materials can be machined with the B3220 Boring Cartridge which can use an extensive range of indexable inserts. It excels at thru hole, line hole, and step cuts, and is ideally suited for chassis, large engine, and gearbox roughing in the automotive industry. In general engineering it finds application in the roughing of bearing holes, machine housings, and compressor housings, among other parts. In the railway industry it brings new efficiencies to chassis roughing.

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.
