Walter has launched a major extension of its turning geometry program. Extensions include the FM4, RM4, FP6 and FK6 positive inserts.

The FM4 are engineered for finishing stainless and high temperature alloys (ISO M, S) and have excellent chip-breaking capabilities at low feed rates and low cutting depths, the company says. They are available in grades WSM10S, WSM20S and WSM30S.

The RM4 positive inserts are targeted at stainless and high temperature alloys (ISO M, S) for roughing and medium machining operations. They are available in grades WSM10S, WSM20S, WSM30S, and WMP20S.

The FP6 positive inserts excel at finishing steels (ISO P) and provide superior chip control, the company says. They are available in grades WPP10S and WPP20S. The FP6 is an alternative to FP4 and MP4 and replaces PS5 in steel applications.

Walter’s FK6 positive inserts, available in grades WKK10S and WKK20S, are engineered specially for finish to medium machining. They are an alternative to MK4 and replace PS5 in iron applications.

The Walter turning program extension also includes positive wiper inserts for PF and PM geometries.
