Walter's new Insert Converter insert selection app Click image to enlarge

Walter has introduced a new app that shows insert selection with the latest Walter grades and chip breaker geometries for their application.

Walter says the Insert Converter app can help customers enhance machining processes, increase tool life and process reliability, or improve productivity.

The app’s search function has been kept simple: instead of clicking through menu options, they can make selections directly based on the grade or geometry. To do this, they enter the grade or chip breaker geometry already in use – and the app then shows them Walter alternatives. The recommended grades or geometries may vary considerably depending on the workpiece material.

If required, the user can click for additional detailed information on the coating process (CVD/PVD, etc.) or basic ISO shape (positive/negative). In the case of ISO geometries, the indexable insert style (single or double-side, negative, etc.) is also displayed.

In addition to carbide cutting tool materials, ISO advanced materials such as CBN, PCD, ceramic and cermet are also covered. The range of applications includes turning, grooving and parting off.

The app is compatible with both Android and iOS (Apple) devices. It is also available as a web version via a browser – and offline, if required. The Insert Converter app can be downloaded from the App Store, Google Play or Walter's website.
