Walter has added an octagon cutter to its Xtra-tec portfolio, called the F4080. The tool, with octagonal inserts, is available in both coarse and close pitch. It features one insert size for all tool diameters 2" to 6" (50 mm to 170 mm) and adapts to individual requirements. Insert grades for cast iron, steel and aluminum are available, including the PVD-Tiger-tec cutting tool materials WSP45 and WSM35 for high-alloyed stainless steels and difficult-to-cut workpiece materials. Cutting inserts in five geometries from strong to sharp are available for optimal performance. Additionally, precision-sintered and high-precision circumference-ground insert versions can be used. A special feature of the octagon cutter is the nickel-plated tool body, which reduced the vibration on the machine spindle and works effectively in high-speed aluminum machining. It is suitable for all machining operations, such as face milling, circular interpolation, ramping and pocketing.
