Walter MC232 Perform Milling Cutters Provide Universal Applicability for Milling Operations

May 4, 2017

Walter has added to its range of solid carbide milling cutters with the introduction of its MC232 Perform product line. These three versatile, cost effective new cutter types are available with two, three or four teeth, in a diameter range of 0.08 in. to 0.79 in. (2 to 20 mm) from a 0.24 in. (6 mm) shank diameter with a Weldon shank.

This marks the first time that solid carbide milling cutters have been included in the Perform line from Walter, which is designed to be highly economical and suitable for use in a wide range of applications, key advantages for shops that frequently machine smaller quantities. The properties of the new MC232 Perform milling cutters are particularly beneficial for users whose top priority is the universal applicability of their tools, rather than simply tool life.

Universal applicability is also mirrored in the technical features of the MC232 Perform milling cutters. Thanks to their geometry with center cutting edge and 35 degrees spiral, as well as their WJ30ED grade, these new corner/slot milling cutters are suitable for all common milling operations such as lateral milling, full slotting, pocket milling, ramping and helical plunging. They can be used in industries ranging from mechanical engineering, mold and die, to the automotive and energy industries.
