Original Press Release:
New Perform Line Turning Inserts from Walter Help Boost the Performance and Reliability of Slower and Older Machines
Versatile and cost-effective WPV10 and WPV20 Perform Line inserts are ideal for users whose machines are limited in cutting parameters
Walter has introduced two new insert grades in its Perform Line of turning tools, the WPV10 and WPV20. Based on proven Walter technology, these versatile, cost-effective inserts are ideal for users whose machines are limited in cutting parameters due to their stability and performance, and who need a versatile insert that can handle different materials, as well as for those who machine small or medium batch sizes.
The lower price-point inserts are also beneficial to users who have difficulties measuring the tool life of an insert and who change inserts at set intervals, for example at the beginning of each shift.
Both grades WPV10 and WPV20, have CVD coating and gold color for easy wear detection. These grades are available in three new geometries: FV5 (finishing), MV5 (medium machining), and RV5 (roughing). Primary application for these new Walter Perform turning inserts is steels (ISO P), with secondary applications in stainless steels (ISO M) and 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 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.
