Insert Offers High Temperature and Wear Resistance, Toughness and Hardness



The indexable inserts in the new Tiger·tec Silver grade WSM45X are designed to provide high temperature resistance and enhanced wear resistance, toughness and hardness.

Walter has introduced the Tiger·tec Silver grade WSM45X, an indexable insert designed to provide high temperature resistance and improved wear resistance, toughness and hardness. "These key features of inserts in the new Tiger·tec Silver grade WSM45X are designed to boost performance by up to 67% over comparable tools," said a company spokesperson.

"The Tiger·tec Silver surface treatment, coupled with Walter's high-performance substrate, offers enhanced process reliability when working with materials that have difficult cutting properties, such as titanium alloys," continued the spokesperson. The surfaces are also smooth, which reduces edge build up. In addition, the two-tone Tiger·tec Silver coating allows users to identify wear quickly and thus make sure that all cutting edges are used efficiently.

The indexable inserts in the Tiger·tec Silver grade WSM45X are available for all popular Xtra·tec and new M4000 face and shoulder mills and the Walter F2334 copy milling cutter. WSM45X is suited to machining stainless steels (ISO M) and difficult-to-cut materials (ISO S). Typical components include exhaust-gas turbochargers, turbine blades and titanium frames for use in the aerospace industry.
