Milling Cutter Offers Versatility

Walter M5012 Xtra·tec XT face milling cutter

Walter has introduced the Xtra·tec XT M5012 face milling cutter, a productive and versatile face mill with an 88° approach angle. The mill, available in diameters of 32 mm to 100 mm, is part of Walter's next generation of milling tools called Xtra·tec XT, which are designed for increased productivity and process reliability. This new tool is suitable for steel, cast iron, stainless steels, difficult to machine and non-ferrous materials. The M5012 is used in face milling, roughing and rough finishing operations with wiper inserts.

"With the Xtra·tec XT M5012, additional finishing operations can usually be avoided," said a company spokesperson. "The mill can also be used on less powerful machines due to its positive soft cutting action. It permits maximum feeds, tool life and productivity due to its small indexable inserts with a high number of teeth and a large depth of cut. These tough double-sided, universal, indexable inserts in either Walter Tiger·tec Silver or Tiger·tec Gold permit maximum feeds, tool life and contribute to a high level of stability-ideal for small machining allowances and variable conditions. There is easy handling due to its accessible clamping screw at an angle, preventing typical assembly mistakes."

The Xtra·tec XT M5012 inserts are offered in a fully ground configuration for increased precision, or fully sintered configuration for enhanced cost efficiency. The bodies are offered in either ScrewFit or shell mount and with two pitches for different applications.
