Walter adds cartridges to extend M4000 capabilitiesClick image to enlarge

Walter has expanded its milling program with additions that allow the universal, square system inserts of its M4000 milling line to be used in its F2010 program.

The F2010 program is a milling family that utilizes a replaceable and adjustable cartridge. Cartridges are now available to convert the standard F2010 mill bodies into the following: the M4002, which is a 15° lead high-feed mill; the M4003, a 45° lead mill; and the M4132, a 90° shoulder mill, which is available in two different insert sizes. 

By launching these four new cartridges for the F2010 face and shoulder milling cutter line, Walter has expanded the application scope of the M4000 range, bringing it to bear on the machining of medium and large components.

The M4000 range offers soft cutting action plus positive geometry, resulting in higher metal removal rates and efficiency. Previously the M4000 was available only in diameters up to 6 in. (160 mm), but these new cartridge-based milling cutters come in a diameter range of 3.15-12.4 in. (80–315 mm) and can be used to machine medium and large components as well as small ones.

The design consists of a basic body plus four adjustable or interchangeable cartridge-types, making the F2010 a good choice for those who want to carry out shoulder milling, face milling or high feed milling operations. The adjustable nature of the cartridges enables the runout to be fine-tuned to produce superior surface quality.
