More teeth – more productivity
Walter MD177 and MD173 Supreme solid carbide milling cutters for ISO S, P and M
With the MD177 Supreme and the MD173 Supreme, Walter is for the first time launching solid carbide milling cutters with seven cutting edges. Developed for the aerospace industry, their performance is excellent not only in titanium, but in steel and stainless steel too. The two Supreme tools are set apart from standard solid carbide milling cutters by their geometry, among other features. The version with seven teeth achieves excellent productivity, while its uneven pitch reduces vibration, ensuring excellent operational smoothness. The entire length of the cutting edge can be used, meaning that wear is relatively uniform – in turn extending the tool life of the milling cutters.
