Press Release Summary:
Working with coolant pressure of 145–1,160 psi, Parting Blade Adapters for BMT/DO machines ensure precision cooling of both insert and parting blade, optimizing chip control and tool life. Coolant flows through adapter directly into and through parting blade to cutting zone. O-ring seal ensures that coolant transfers efficiently with no loss of pressure. Adapter has adjustable center height for each workpiece within range of Â±0.020 in.,Â allowing exact center position to be set on any workpiece.

Parting Blade Adaptors with Precision Cooling, from Walter Deliver Superior Chip Control, Longer Tool Life, and Other Benefits
Reduced downtime for chip clearance means higher productivity with the Walter BMT/DO parting blade adaptors
Waukesha, WI -- Walter has introduced new parting blade adaptors for BMT/DO machines that ensure precision cooling of both the insert and the parting blade, thus improving chip control and tool life, and helping to increase productivity. With the Walter design, the coolant flows through the adaptor directly into and through the parting blade to the cutting zone. An O-ring seal ensures that the coolant transfers efficiently and with no loss of pressure. In addition, for particular applications the adaptors can also be used with external cooling, either alone or in conjunction with internal cooling. This is done simply by adjusting the coolant nozzle.
Installing the new parting blade adaptors requires only a single bracket, whether the adaptors are installed in the standard position or overhead. As an additional benefit, the adaptor has adjustable center height for each individual workpiece within a range of ±0.020 in. (±0.5 mm). This allows an exact center position to be set on any workpiece, without additional tasks.
The precision coolant supply ensures excellent chip control and minimized tool wear. Machine productivity is increased by minimizing downtime to clear large chip volumes. The robust holder is designed to allow machining in any position required, minimizing vibration during operation.
Walter's new BMT/DO parting blade adaptors work with a coolant pressure of 145 to 1160 psi. This means that they can be used on virtually any machines that feature a BMT interface.
