Rugged milling cutter
Waukesha, Wisconsin - Walter has introduced the Walter BLAXX M3016, a heavy duty milling cutter with the ruggedness and power needed to make heavy cuts seem easy. The M3016 tackles ISO material groups P, M, and K, and difficult applications such as machining frames made from cast iron for large molds.
In addition, the M3016, which is aimed chiefly at milling and boring machines, delivers superior process reliability even with older machines. These and other advantages derive from a number of factors, such as the M3016’s carbide axial stop for high process reliability. This works as an emergency cutting edge to protect the clamping screw and insert pocket from damage, reducing tooling costs in the process. Additionally, the M3016 uses four grades of Walter’s advanced Tiger?·tec Silver cutting tool material --WKP25S, WKP35S (CVD) and WKK25S, WSP45S (PVD) which
boosts both tool life and process reliability, while also reducing cutting material costs.
