Walter M2025/M2026 Octagon Finishing Face Mills Deliver Increased Surface Quality
September 16, 2015
Walter recently unveiled its M2025/M2026 octagon finishing face mills designed to deliver increased surface quality on large cast iron components. For these types of components, optimum sealing surface function can only be guaranteed when the surfaces are completely flat, and the new finishing mill tool ranges are built to produce that result. Plus, their high feeds and cutting speeds cut processing times and their ease of handling reduces setup requirements, saving time and cost.
These face mills are equipped with 16-edged octagonal peripheral inserts and three, 4-edged, wiper inserts. The basic shape of the wiper inserts is negative, while the cutting edge geometry is positive. Convex edge wiper inserts ensure an increased level of surface quality. All inserts are precision ground and the cutter bodies, likewise, feature precision insert seats, and cutting edges can be changed rapidly thanks to the wedge clamping of the octagonal inserts. Tool set-up savings are gained because no adjustment of the wiper cutting edges is necessary.
