Two sides for top performance
Walter is introducing a new double-sided indexable insert for turning machining operations under the designation "MU5".
The insert can be used universally both for steel forged parts in automotive series production, such as drivetrain or gearbox components, and for components made from stainless materials.
In forged parts, the MU5 geometry minimises crater wear – and thereby enables reliable, fully automated series production. For users with changing materials and small quantities, the MU5 is appealing due to its universal use for steel and stainless materials. The combination of improved chip breaking with a longer tool life will also be equally beneficial for both target groups. These characteristics of the MU5 inserts are due to the positive macro-geometry.
