The Walter Cut G1011-P, a grooving tool that is designed to enhance surface quality, extend tool life and improve process reliability, is available in shank versions of 0.750” and 1.00” (also 20 and 25 mm), the company says. This internally cooled tool features precision coolant delivered to both the flank and the chipbreaker of the insert to address problems with chip control, especially problems with long chips. This results in excellent surface quality, improved and more consistent tool life with tool life improvements of as much as 200 to 300 percent, in some cases, the company says. Its short tool head length helps make it suitable for universal use while also boosting chip evacuation. The Walter Cut G1011-P boasts high clamping forces because of optimum screw position and features simple insert indexing in normal or inverted position.

Used extensively on turret turning centers, Swiss turn, and multi- spindle machines, with its ample cutting depths of as much as 0.827” (21 mm), the G1011-P is particularly effective for parting off and deep grooving on stainless steels, high-temp alloys, long chip-forming steels and other difficult-to-machine materials, the company says.
