Walter has introduced the Xtra·Tec XT M5468 round insert milling cutter for copy, face, ramping, pocket, and circular interpolation milling.

The versatile Xtra·Tec XT M5468 is suitable for steel, stainless steel, cast iron, non-ferrous material with difficult cutting properties, and hard machining, and is well suited for copy milling with minimal material removal.

The Xtra·Tec XT M5468 offers improved protection against twisting and cutting-edge rotation due to the eight facets on its indexable inserts. It also boosts productivity thanks to its ability to support optimum cutting data and promote long tool life, as well as maximum process stability due to the indexing of the indexable inserts using facets.

This oversized milling cutter, which handles machining operations on deep shoulders, is adaptable to various machining operations due to its variety of indexable insert sizes and geometries. Flexibility is enhanced by a cylindrical modular interface that permits its use in existing adapter systems.

The Xtra·Tec XT M5468 also accommodates ScrewFit, Weldon shank, and shell mill mount interfaces. Walter says that its universal adaptability promotes lower tool costs and reduced time and labor, and that the Tiger·tec cutting tool materials and higher number of teeth enhance cost efficiency.

Available insert variants are fully sintered, and fully ground circumference. Diameters range from 1-4-in. (20-100 mm), and there are two  pitches for different applications. Areas of use include die and mould, general metalworking, and the energy industry, among others.
