Walter Launches Extension of Its Turning Geometry Program

New positive turning inserts extend Walter precision and reliability to a range of new applications for stainless steel, high temperature alloys and other metals.

Waukesha, WI -- Walter has launched a major extension of its turning geometry program with new products that bring Walter precision and reliability to a range of new applications.

Extensions include the FM4 positive inserts. Engineered for finishing stainless and high temperature alloys (ISO S), these inserts have excellent chip breaking capabilities at low feed rates and low cutting depths. They are available in grades WSM10S, WSM20S, and WSM30S.

Walter’s RM4 positive inserts are targeted at stainless and high temperature alloys (ISO M, S) for roughing and medium machining operations. They are available in grades WSM10S, WSM20S, WSM30S, and WMP20S.

The new FP6 positive inserts excel at finishing steels (ISO P) and provide superior chip control. They are available in grades WPP10S and WPP20S. The FP6 is a productive alternative to FP4 and MP4 and replaces PS5 in steel applications..

Walter’s FK6 positive inserts, available in grades WKK10S and WKK20S, are engineered specially for finish to medium machining. They are an alternative to MK4 and replace PS5 in iron applications.

Importantly, the Walter turning program extension also includes positive wiper inserts for PF and PM geometries. These inserts provide high surface quality and high feed rates. They also give users the flexibility of choosing to maintain their current surface quality with double the feed rate, or 50% lower surface roughness with their current feed rate.   

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.
