New Perform Line Turning Inserts from Walter Help Boost Performance and Reliability

WKV10 and WKV20 Perform Line negative grades for efficiency and reliability in cast iron machining.

Waukesha, WI—Walter has added two new cast iron insert grades to its Perform Line family of turning tools, the WKV10 and WKV20. These new negative geometry grades are versatile, cost-effective inserts and are ideal for those who machine small or medium batch sizes. These new grades in the Perform Line supplement corresponding grades for steels that were introduced last year.

Along with these new grades for cast iron, Walter has also introduced new positive geometries FV4 (finishing) and MV4 (medium). These geometries are primarily designed for steel and associated with WPV10 and WPV20 grades.

These economical inserts are beneficial to users who have difficulties measuring the tool life of an insert and who change inserts at set intervals. Both WKV10 and WKV20 grades have extremely wear-resistant CVD coating and can be used for a wide range of materials and applications.

These new grades are available in two geometries: MV7 (medium machining), and RV7 (roughing). Primary application for these new Walter Perform turning inserts are cast iron (ISO K). In field testing, the Walter Perform turning inserts demonstrated superior process reliability with very good chip control, and tool-life increases of up to 100% when compared to other similar inserts.

Walter, a global leader in the metalworking industry for over 100 years, offers a wide range of precision tools for milling, turning, drilling and threading applications. The company helps customers in the aviation and aerospace industries, automotive, energy, and general industry improve process reliability and increase productivity.
