Designed for universal applications, Walter’s Prototyp Advance line of solid carbide milling tools consists of six cutter types and 250 line items, each providing a balance of hardness and toughness. The lines’ high-performance WJ30TF grade and titanium aluminum nitride (TiAIN) coating also provide increased tool life. The tools are well-suited to machining a wide range of materials (ISO material groups P, M, K and S).

The line features standard geometries of 30- and 45-degree helix angles and comes in two main tool configurations: the shoulder mill and the shoulder/slot mill. Universal shoulder mills include the MC111 milling cutter with a 30-degree helix angle and four cutting edges, the MC112 30-degree cutter with four cutting edges, and the MC122 45-degree cutter with four to eight cutting edges. Shoulder/slot mills include the MC213 30-degree cutter with two to four cutting edges, the MC216 30-degree cutter with two or three cutting edges, and the MC322 45-degree cutter with four cutting edges.
