The Walter Cut G1511 straight toolholder is optimized for cutting depths up to 6 mm.
New tools can reduce costs, boost safety and speed changeover times in grooving, parting and turning applications.
Walter USA, LLC (Waukesha, WI) has expanded its line of Walter Cut tools for parting, grooving and turning with three new models optimized for shallow depth grooving of up to a maximum of 0.236 in. (6 mm). These three new tools—designated G1511, G1521, and G1551—each have different approach angles. The G1511 is straight 0 degrees, the G1521 is angled at 90 degrees, and the G1551 is angled at 45 degrees. The straight and the 90 degree versions are suitable for radial and axial face grooving, as well as for turning. The 45 degree G1551 is primarily intended for recesses, undercutting and copy turning applications.Though optimized for shallow grooving, all three models can be used for a variety of applications including parting off small and thin-walled workpieces or for making sealing ring and snap ring grooves. Enhancing this versatility is the fact that inserts in widths ranging from 0.079-0.236 in. (2-6 mm) can be used in the same Walter Cut toolholder. These double-edged inserts are formed from the latest Tiger·tec cutting tool materials with geometries and coatings specifically for grooving.
