100 per cent increase in productivity and quality
Walter launches new FW4 and MW4 wiper geometries.
With the FW4 and MW4 wiper geometries, Walter is launching two turning indexable insert geometries which combine the "wiper effect" with new chip breaker geometries and extremely wear-resistant Walter Tiger·tec® Gold grades. The curved wiper edge sweeps over the surface again, making it possible either to double the feed and increase productivity by 100 per cent, or to double the surface quality while maintaining the same feed. With the new geometries, Walter is now also transferring this effect from the FW5 and MW5 double-sided cutting inserts to indexable inserts with a positive basic shape. The result is the FW4 geometry with a narrow chip breaker for finishing operations and the MW4 geometry with an open chip breaker groove and longer radiused wiper cutting edge for medium machining.
