Walter, a producer of precision cutting tools for milling, drilling, turning, boring and specialized tools, recently introduced two new indexable insert cartridges for the Walter F2010 face mill. These new cartridges, the FR751M and FR752M, bring the flexibility and performance of Walter BLAXX tangential indexable inserts to the Walter F2010 face mill. The family of indexable milling tools includes shoulder, helical and slitting mills.
The Walter BLAXX shoulder mill produces precise, almost step-free 90° shoulders. That system is only available for tool diameters up to 6.30 in. (160 mm). The F2010 face mill, equipped with the FR751M or FR752M cartridge, can now bring this technology up to a diameter of 12.40 in. (315 mm). In addition, the F2010 can now be used for fine finishing because the indexable inserts can be adjusted axially with micrometer precision.
These inserts come in two geometry variants: the L55T, a universal geometry that can be used on most materials, and the L85T, which has a particularly sharp cutting edge for machining aluminum.
