Walter Tiger∙tec Silver Turning Inserts for Steel Turning Applications
Walter’s Tiger∙tec Silver Turning for steel turning applications consists of three new grades and four new geometries.
Walter USA’s Ceramic Inserts Optimize High-Temp Alloy Machining
Walter USA’s ceramic inserts directed at machining high-temp alloys such as Inconel, Waspalloy and Stellite feature grades WIS10 and WWS20. Super alloys, because of the high cutting temperatures generated with greater tool stresses and increased tool wear, can be tough on carbide tools typically used to machine them.

• Threading tools catalog covers entire ANSI threading program and solid carbide thread mill range, along with a selection of the most popular DIN items • The catalog has been completely restructured to provide the user ease in selecting the right product • All products in this catalog are now stocked in the U. S.
Octogon Cutter Added To Tooling Line
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.
Walter USA has added the WPP01 and WPP05 to its range of Tiger-tec cutting materials for turning steel. The line now accommodates steel turning requirements from roughing, to medium machining operations, to fine finishing. The WPP01 grade provides a solution for productive finishing work, while the WPP05 grade is suited for medium machining operations and roughing.
Eight Positive Cutting Edge Geometry Inserts
Walter USA’s WPP indexable insert range includes eight positive cutting edge geometries. The inserts are part of the Tiger-tec for Steel family, and are standard ANSI/ISO positive shapes. The positive cutting edges ensure a quiet cut with minimal vibrations and increased process reliability, especially under difficult operating conditions.
Carbide Tools And Indexable Inserts
- 2006 supplement catalog includes milling, boring, turning tools and inserts- Highlights latest developments in the Xtra-tec tool line and brand new boring line, grooving line, reamer line, PCD-milling-cutter line and the extension of the PVD Al(2)O(3) insert line in a clearly arranged format .
Cutting Material Innovations
- Every Tiger-tec steel geometry is listed with specifications and diagrams illustrating the cutting edge conditions in this pocket-sized brochure- Application examples are listed, as well as how to select the optimal indexable insert- Cutting parameters, a cutting tool material application chart, a hardness conversion table and more are included.
PVD Coated Milling Cutters
The Tiger-tec cutting tool coating material is being applied to a wider range of milling cutters. This coating was developed from Walter's PVD technology applied to an aluminium oxide coating. According to the company, when this coating is used with tools for cutting stainless steel, service-life of those tools is doubled.
Walter has created a PVD coating for its Tiger-tec cutting grades by applying aluminum oxide to its inserts. Until now, aluminum oxide could be used only with CVD coatings. These cutting tool materials are particularly designed for use in the aerospace and power generation industries.
Cutting Tool Material For Steel Turning
The Tiger-tec for Steel line, which is available in three different cutting materials (Walter grades WPP10, WPP20, WPP30) and eight different ISO insert shapes (negative basic shape), is recommended for roughing and finishing all types of current steels--from unalloyed structural steels to high-alloyed tool steels. In combination with cutting-edge geometry specially designed for steel machining, this insert is especially useful for virtually every applicaiton. In contrast to the black-and-gold colored inserts for cast iron, the color of these inserts has been modified so users can tell the inserts apart at a glance.
This catalog provides data on new carbide indexable inserts. More than 125 pages detail information on the Color Select family of inserts. New inserts have just been introduced for nonferrous materials and hard or hardened workpiece materials.
