Walter’s G1041, a line of parting blades with a reinforced shank, ensures maximum stability and reliable grooving processes, the company says. Suitable for grooving and parting-off on all kinds of turning machines, the parting blades feature coolant supply through the clamping block, enabling precision coolant delivery directly to the chipbreaker and insert flank. This, together with PVD AL2O3 coating on the inserts, provides superior chip control, tool life and heightening process reliability, the company says.

Secure Torx Plus screw clamping ensures simple and fast insert change, the company says. The tool's long GX-style inserts, securely clamped in the pocket, are said to enable superior flatness, enhance chip control and produce high quality surface finishes. It also facilitates higher cutting parameters, saving production time. G1041 blade size is 1.02/1.25" (26/32 mm). Parting off is up to 2.56" (65 mm) in diameter and cutting width is 0.079" to 0.157” (2 to 4 mm) with grooving depths of 0.630" to 1.25" (16 to 32 mm). Blade shank heights of 1.25" (32 mm) and 0.02" (26 mm) are available, as are right and left-hand tools and contra versions.

Prime application areas for the G1041 include bar feeder, turret machine and multi-spindle machine work; parting to center; cases where there is insufficient coolant for blade and workpiece; in long overhangs with vibration; and in cases of uncontrolled chip formation.
