Walter has expanded its Blaxx family of cutters with the F5055 slitting cutter and the F5138 milling cutter.

The F5055 features high concentric and axial runout values to minimize vibration and a form-locking grooving system for insert indexing. Well-suited for cast iron, steel and stainless steel components, the cutter is available in diameters ranging from 63 to 250 mm for insert widths of 2 to 4 mm.

The F5138 helical flute cutter achieves high profiling and shoulder milling feed rates for work with steel, stainless steel, non-ferrous metal, difficult-to-cut metal and cast iron. It uses four-edged, tangentially indexable inserts, whose helically positioned cutting edges and free-cutting geometries provide high concentricity to reduce cutting forces and vibration. The cutter is available in diameters ranging from 1 1/2" to 3" (40 to 80 mm) with two different cutting lengths per diameter. Optional internal coolant supply to all cutting edges is also available. The use of the same indexable insert system as the F5141 shoulder mill enables sharing of the same insert sizes.
