Depending on the material and application, the new Tiger-tec Gold PVD grade achieves performance improvements of up to 75 per cent in automotive, energy and aerospace industries.Click image to enlargeNew Tiger·tec Gold PVD grade WSP45G from Walter pushes the boundaries of what a cutting tool material can be expected to accomplish.

Use the inserts with all standard milling cutters in the Walter lineup, including Xtra·tec XT, Walter BLAXX and M4000 milling cutters.

They can also be used in Walter indexable insert drills such as the D4120 for ISO P steels, but also for difficult-to-cut materials from the ISO S and M material groups.

The unique TiAlN-Al2O3 multilayer coating system makes the WSP45G extremely resistant to abrasive wear and high temperatures, with controlled residual stresses and less flank wear. A special mechanical post-treatment improves thermal crack resistance and protects the cutting edge from micro-spalling. The light gold-colored topcoat of the multilayer system makes it easier to detect wear. Unused cutting edges are reliably identified, making it possible to use the full potential of the indexable insert.

These are perfect for demanding machining tasks, such as materials with difficult cutting properties and interrupted cuts. Depending on the material and application, the new Tiger-tec Gold PVD grade achieves performance improvements of up to 75 per cent in automotive, energy and aerospace industries.
