Walter's FW5 and MW5 insertsClick image to enlargeWalter’s FW5 and MW5 universal wiper geometries deliver consistently good surface finish throughout the entire life of the tool, reducing machining time, and aiding productivity.

FW5 and MW5 wiper geometries for turning and facing, with circumference-sintered indexable inserts, generate reduced cutting pressure on thin shafts and for internal machining.

The FW5 wiper geometries, with a new wiper curved cutting edge and V chip formation for short chips, can also be used on components with long overhangs thanks to the reduced cutting pressure.

The MW5, with its longer cutting edge, is suitable for the highest feeds. The FW5 and MW5 are available on a variety of inserts. These new Walter geometries reduce machining time by increasing the feed by up to 300 per cent while maintaining surface quality and can allow users to combine roughing and finishing operations using the same insert.

ERP in the cloud

Cloud computing continues to transform the ERP landscape

By Andrew Brooks

In the early days of enterprise resource planning (ERP) software, one of the main complaints customers had was that the sheer scale and complexity of the software made implementation difficult and error-prone.
