Indexable Turning Inserts Offer Mirror Finishes

Cermet WEP10 inserts from Walter.

The Cermet WEP10 indexable turning inserts from Walter are designed to deliver long tool life and high productivity. Their fine-grain titanium carbide substrate with Ni/Co binder produces a stable cutting edge. "Combined with a hard TiCN outer layer, this grade provides multiple advantages during finishing operations when compared to carbide inserts," said a company spokesperson.

These advantages include increased tool life due to its high wear resistance, no necessity for readjustments and maximum dimensional accuracy. In addition, Cermet WEP10's FP4 soft-cutting insert geometry is suitable for finishing a range of different materials. The FP4 geometry, with its unique edge preparation, is capable of yielding mirror finish surfaces at high or low cutting speeds. A variety of insert shapes are available.

Application areas for the new Walter Cermet WEP10 include finishing operations with continuous or slightly interrupted cut in steels, stainless steels and cast-iron workpieces. Targeted industries can be general metalworking, mechanical engineering, energy and the automotive industries.
