High-feed milling – the entire range
Walter is introducing three new high-feed milling cutters: The Xtra·tec® XT M5008 high-feed milling cutter for diameters of 16–66 mm (⅝–2½"), and the two MC025 Advance and MD025 Supreme solid carbide milling cutters for diameters of 1–25 mm (⅛–1"), with application ranges that perfectly complement one another.
The key characteristic for all three roughing tools is a shallow approach angle and easy-cutting geometries, which facilitate high feeds per tooth at low cutting depths. Together with the high number of teeth, this ensures high machining volumes, stability and process reliability. Furthermore, vibration tendency is reduced for long tools. The tools' shallow approach angle reduces the radial load on the tools. This means that the MC025 Advance and MD025 Supreme solid carbide milling cutters are perfectly suited to machining thin-walled connecting elements, such as hinges and struts in aircraft construction.
