Perform Line Insert Grades Boost Performance and Reliability
The Walter Perform Line of turning tools’s two insert grades, the WPV10 and WPV20, are beneficial to users who have difficulties measuring the tool life of an insert and who change inserts at set intervals.
The Walter Perform Line of turning tools’s two insert grades, the WPV10 and WPV20, can be used by users whose machines are limited in cutting parameters due to their stability and performance, and who need a insert that can handle different materials, as well as for those who machine small or medium batch sizes. The inserts are also beneficial to users who have difficulties measuring the tool life of an insert and who change inserts at set intervals.
Both grades have CVD coating and gold color for easy wear detection. These grades are available in three geometries: FV5 (finishing), MV5 (medium machining), and RV5 (roughing). Primary application for these turning inserts is steels (ISO P), with secondary applications in stainless steels (ISO M) and cast iron (ISO K).
In field testing, the turning inserts were said to demonstrate superior process reliability with good chip control, and tool-life increases of up to 100 percent when compared to other similar inserts.

Sometimes a shop doesn’t do enough turning work to justify the purchase of a CNC lathe. But when it needs to produce precision turned parts, even if for a very small lot size, the shop needs a solution.
Some primary factors are often overlooked when considering how to justify the implementation of a bar feeder for turning operations.
