Walter MC232 Perform line of solid carbide milling cutters

Walter’s MC232 Perform line of solid carbide milling cutters feature a corner radius and reduced neck. Solid carbide milling cutters with corner radii allow improved approaches to individual component geometries. It also improves the tool life of the milling cutter, as the edge stability is increased.

The reduced neck, in turn, makes the milling cutter more flexible, as it can be used with an even wider variety of cutting depths. MC232 Perform line, with diameter sizes ranging from 1/8” to ¾” and 2- to 20-mm, can be used for all typical milling applications (shoulder, slotting, pocket milling, helical plunging and ramping) and are suitable for a variety of materials.

Users also benefit from other features of the Perform line, such as the high level of cost efficiency for small and medium batch sizes. Application of the milling cutter line include steel, stainless and cast iron. They are of particular benefit to job shops and manufacturers that are frequently changing orders or quantities.



  • When Thread Milling Makes Sense

    Threading a workpiece is a fundamental metalworking process that every manufacturing engineer takes for granted.

  • No-Burr Threading Helps Shop Compete

    With the switch from a ground top-notch tool to a pressed Ingersoll threading form tool on one high-volume job, Warren Screw Machine eliminated 2 minutes of hand deburring per part. Not incidentally,  the company also lopped 20 seconds per part off the threading cycle.

  • Making Micro Threads

    Production of micro threads can be challenging, but using the most suitable tools for a given application can simplify the task.
