Face milling cutter
- November 15, 2021
Walter has introduced the Xtra·tec XT M5009 face milling cutter.
The M5009 has been designed for face milling, roughing, and rough finishing with wiper inserts on steel, stainless steels, materials with difficult cutting properties, and non-ferrous metals. With its small, double-sided SN X0904 or SN X1205 indexable inserts and high number of teeth the M5009 maximizes feeds and tool life and extends productivity, boosting process reliability while reducing cutting tool material costs, Walter says.
Enhanced stability makes the M5009 well suited for minimal material removal and use in variable conditions. Also, its positive soft cutting action means it can be used on less powerful tools. The accessible clamping screw is at an angle that prevents typical installation mistakes and improves handling.
The M5009 has a 45° approach angle, is available in diameters of 25-160 mm (1-6 in.) and provides a depth of cut of 5 or 6.5 mm. It features three pitches for different applications (tools with wide and medium pitch for insert size SN X1205 are designed with carbide shim), and either ScrewFit or shell mill mount interfaces.
