Both solid carbide milling cutters can handle roughing, finishing and semi-finishing Click image to enlargeWalter’s MC377 Advance and the MD377 Supreme are two solid carbide milling cutters that successfully tackle titanium machining.

The Advance is a highly cost-effective tool for universal use in ISO materials S, M, and P. The Supreme is a high-end specialist primarily for the aviation and aerospace industry.

Both solid carbide milling cutters can handle roughing, finishing and semi-finishing as well as ramping, shoulder milling and plunging.

The MC377 Advance, with protective chamfer, corner radii, and center cutting edge, can be used for chrome-nickel and steel materials, as well as titanium. The versatile cutter’s complete range features products with diameters from 2 to 25 mm and makes them particularly attractive for small parts manufacturers in the medical technology sector and food industry. The long tool life of its Walter high-performance WK40EA grade and its tough AICrN coating extend tool life while helping to lower inventory costs.

The MD377 Supreme is a solid carbide milling cutter with a corner radius and central internal coolant engineered for titanium machining. Its HPC Ti40 geometry has been optimized for titanium cutting, with a high metal removal rate thanks to its five cutting edges, and the latest Walter exclusive AlTiN+ZrN coating with HIPIMS technology for maximum tool life. Ideal for dynamic milling, it is suitable for roughing, shoulder milling, finishing, and semi-finishing, with ramping possible, and full slotting up to 1 x Dc. This high-end titanium milling cutter is ideal for machining ISO S materials such as engine components, small parts or structural components, as well as additively manufactured components.
