New indexable cermet turning insert

Share This Post

Walter has introduced a new cermet turning insert based on the PVD coated cermet grade WEP10C, along with negative clearance FP5 geometry that reduces cutting pressure.

Primary application is steel (ISO P) with secondary application in stainless steel (ISO M) and cast iron (ISO K).

The new FP5 geometry is also well suited for finishing with continuous and slightly interrupted cuts, and offers optimal wear resistance.

These indexable turning inserts are designed for applications where a soft cut and high precision is required.  Long tool life is achieved through the WEP10C coated cermet grade with multilayer PVD TiCN TiAlN coating and extra fine cermet substrate grain. Walter’s combination of edge preparation and grade also ensures dimensional stability. Primary applications include energy, automotive, and general metalworking.

In addition to the negative clearance geometry FP5, the WEP10C grade cermet inserts are also available in positive clearance FP2 and FP4 geometries, The FP4 geometry is ideal for finishing operations with visibly shiny surface finish, while the FP2 geometry is ideal for small diameters, fine boring and in general any application that requires a sharper cutting edge. The grade WEP10C is offered in most common ISO shaped inserts including C, D, S, T, V, and W.
