Walter introduces the MC232 Perform line of solid carbide milling cutters. These milling cutters feature a corner radius and reduced neck. Solid carbide milling cutters with corner radii enable improved approaches to individual component geometries. It also improves the tool life of the milling cutter, as the edge stability is increased. The reduced neck in turn makes the milling cutter more flexible, as it can be used with an even wider variety of cutting depths. Diameter sizes range from 1/8 to ¾-inch and 2-20 mm metric, which can be used for typical milling applications and are suitable for a variety of materials.
