The inserts are offered in a fully-ground configuration for maximum precisionClick image to enlargeWalter’s newest face milling cutter, the Xtra·tec XT M5012, is a productive and versatile new face mill with an 88° approach angle.

Available in diameters of 32-100 mm (1.2-in. to 4-in.), is ideal for steel, cast iron, stainless steels, difficult to machine, and non-ferrous materials and is used in face milling, roughing and rough finishing operations with wiper inserts.

The mill can be used on less powerful machines due to its positive soft cutting action.

These tough double-sided, universal, indexable inserts in either Walter Tiger·tec Silver or Tiger·tec Gold permit maximum feeds, tool life and contribute to a high level of stability—ideal for small machining allowances and variable conditions. Its accessible clamping screw is set at an angle, preventing typical assembly mistakes.

The inserts are offered in a fully-ground configuration for maximum precision, or fully-sintered configuration for maximum cost efficiency. The bodies are offered in either ScrewFit or shell mount and with two pitches for different applications
