Walter WCH10C grade coated ceramic indexable insertsClick image to enlarge

Walter has introduced a new line of coated ceramic indexable inserts, grade WCH10C.

The new Walter grade is mixed ceramic Al2O3 + TiC, and provides cost effective machining, including hard machining. The high chemical and thermal stability of the aluminum oxide base, and the negative chamfer T-land, yield a high level of process reliability and promote a strong cutting edge. The inserts feature TiN PVD coating for improved wear detection and surface quality and are available with or without wiper geometry.

The WCH10C inserts deliver high repeat accuracy due to their sintering process and are tough and wear resistant due to the strong connection to their titanium carbide substrate. Optimum surface quality is promoted as well by their uniform grain distribution in the substrate.

The WCH10C inserts can be used effectively on materials ranging in hardness from 45 up to 60 HRC. The inserts can be a cost-effective alternative to CBN cutting tool materials. Additionally, WCH10C ceramic grade can be used in case hardened materials where the insert encounters both hard and soft turning conditions simultaneously; an application where CBN usually does not succeed well.
