Original Press Release:
New Parting Blade from Walter Features Direct, Precision Coolant and Delivers Superior Reliability, Chip Control and Surface Finish
Suitable for grooving and parting-off on turning machines, the new Walter G1041 reinforced parting blade boosts cutting parameters, thus reducing production costs, while enhancing both flexibility and surface quality.
Walter has introduced the G1041, a new line of parting blades with a reinforced shank that ensures maximum stability and reliable grooving processes. Suitable for grooving and parting-off on all kinds of turning machines, the G1041 features coolant supply through the clamping block, enabling precision coolant delivery directly to the chip breaker and insert flank. This, together with PVD AL2O3 coating on the inserts, provides superior chip control and tool life and heightening process reliability.
Secure Torx Plus® screw clamping ensures simple and fast insert change, boosting flexibility and reducing costs. The tool's long GX-style inserts, securely clamped in the pocket, enable superior flatness, enhance chip control, and produce high quality surface finishes. It also facilitates higher cutting parameters, saving production time. G1041 blade size is 1.02/1.25 in (26/32 mm). Parting off is up to 2.56 in. (65 mm) dia., and cutting width is 0.079 - 0.157 in. (2 - 4 mm) with grooving depths of 0.630 - 1.25 in. (16 - 32 mm). Blade shank heights of 1.25 in. (32 mm) and 1.02 in. (26 mm) are available, as are right and left hand tools and contra versions.
Prime application areas for the G1041 include bar feeder, turret machine, and multi-spindle machine work; parting to center; cases where there is insufficient coolant for blade and workpiece; in long overhangs with vibration; and in cases of uncontrolled chip formation.
