Walter has introduced two new insert grades in its Perform Line of turning tools: the WPV10 and WPV20.

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 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 per cent when compared to other similar inserts.
