Walter MC025 Click image to enlargeWalter has introduced the MC025 Advance and MD025 Supreme solid carbide milling cutters. 

Both high-speed, high-feed milling cutters feature high-feed face geometry and low radial load. In addition, the MC025 and MD025 cutters are available with cylindrical shank or ConeFit head systems.

The MC025 Advance is available in diameters from 1/8-1 in. (1-25 mm). A single grade is offered for universal applications for steel, stain-less steel, cast iron and materials with difficult cutting properties as well as its ability to lower inventory costs. 

It has a long peripheral cutting edge for good chip removal and for providing support when machining walls. It excels at near net-shape roughing with high feeds per tooth at low depth of cut, and successfully tackles pocket, groove, and freeform surfaces. 

The MD025 Supreme solid carbide milling cutter boasts a high number of teeth for maximum productivity and high-feed face geometry. It is ideal for use on complex components.

The MD025 enables near net roughing with high feeds per tooth at low depth of cut, provides for a short and stable peripheral cutting edge.

Available in diameters from 1/4-1 in. (6-25 mm), the Walter MD025 is offered in two grades to customize the application whether machining carbon steel, stainless or materials with difficult cutting properties. Both grades are suitable for use in the die and mold industry as well as the medical technology, energy, and aerospace industries.
