Octagon Face Milling Cutter Boosts Feed Rates
The M2028/M2029 octagon face milling cutters from Walter delivers high feed rates and lower tooling costs for a wide variety of roughing and finishing applications,
The M2028/M2029 octagon face milling cutters from Walter delivers high feed rates and lower tooling costs for a wide variety of roughing and finishing applications, thanks in large measure to their stable, negative, double sided inserts that feature 16 cutting edges.
The versatile M2028 for roughing and M2029 for finishing are suitable for use with ISO material groups P, M, K and S in a broad range of automotive, aerospace, energy, railway and general machining applications. The M2029 shows tool life increases in the number of machined parts from 30 to 80 for a turbo housing. It also yields a machining time reduction of 31%.
The inserts, which are available in Tiger∙tec Gold, feature marks on the top for easy recognition of geometry and a depth of cut. Depending on the cutter, the geometries available are the D57 geometry for stable cutting at high feed rates in unfavorable conditions, the F57 geometry for universal use under medium conditions and the light cutting F67 geometry for low cutting forces and medium feed rates under good conditions. These geometries are available in grades WKP35G, WSP45S and WSM35S.
