Octagon face milling cutters
- September 4, 2019
Walter has introduced the M2028/M2029 octagon face milling cutters for a variety of roughing and finishing applications.
Walter says the M2028/M2029 have stable, negative, double sided inserts that feature 16 cutting edges.
The M2028 – for roughing – and M2029 – for finishing – are suitable for use with ISO material groups P. M, K, and S in a range of automotive, aerospace, energy, railway and general machining applications. Walter says that in field tests the M2029 showed tool life increases in the number of machined parts from 30 to 80 for a turbo housing. It also yielded a machining time reduction of 31 per cent.
A unique feature of the inserts, which are available in Tiger∙tec Gold, is that they have marks on the top for easy recognition of geometry and a depth of cut. Depending on the cutter, the geometries available are the D57 geometry for stable cutting at high feed rates in unfavorable conditions, the F57 geometry for universal use under medium conditions and the light cutting F67 geometry for low cutting forces and medium feed rates under good conditions. These geometries are available in grades WKP35G, WSP45S, and WSM35S.
