CBN Grades Suitable for Continuous and Interrupted Cuts
Walter introduces CBN grades WBH10C, WBH10 and WBH20 for improved turning of hardened steel up to 65 HRC.
Walter introduces CBN grades WBH10C, WBH10 and WBH20 for improved turning of hardened steel up to 65 HRC. These grades provide users high quality surface finish with wiper geometry and long tool life with TiAlSiN-coated CBN grade (WBH10C). Inserts with laser etched chip breaker geometry TM-M2 are also available. All inserts are ground for process reliability. The grades are available in both positive and negative inserts and are suitable for both continuous and interrupted cuts.
Additionally, the company has also introduced WBS10, a CBN grade for finishing high-temperature superalloys in either continuous or interrupted cuts. Available in both positive and negative inserts, WBS10 features sharp “EM2” microgeometry and superfine grain with ceramic binder.
