Milling Cutter Combines Swift Metal Removal and Safe Handling

Walter says the soft geometries of its M2471 milling cutter with an indexable round insert achieve high material-removal rates even on low-performance machines.

Walter says its M2471 milling cutter is the first on the market to feature a double-sided indexable round insert with eight useable cutting edges. The company says the cutter’s technical features, sintered design and the eight useable cutting edges reduce cutting material costs by up to 20%.

This system’s 0.98” (25 mm) diameter with parallel shank or ScrewFit modular interface is suitable for face and copy milling steel, stainless steels and materials with difficult cutting properties. Walter also says indexing using the flank face of the indexable insert ensures simple, safe handling. The company offers the insert in two geometries: "G57 – The universal one" for medium machining conditions and "K67 – The easy-cutting one" for simple machining conditions. The insert is also available in Tiger·tec Silver PVD grades WSM35S and WSP45S.

Walter says the M2471 milling cutter’s soft cutting geometries and positive cutting characteristics give it a high metal-removal rate even on low-performance machines. The insert and body designs maximize overall stability during use of all eight cutting edges.

Walter recommends the M2471 for the aerospace and energy industries.
