TOOLING AND WORKHOLDING MMS JUNE 2018 150 Dynamic Milling Cutter Ensures Even Wear The MD133 Supreme milling cutter from Walter USA is designed for dynamic milling and delivers process reliability, particularly during unattended operation. Its productivity comes from a high metal removal rate and a reduction in machining time. The first in the compa- ny's projected line of dynamic milling cutters, it comes in diameters ranging from 0.25" to 0.75" (6 to 20 mm) and L:D ratios ranging to 5:1. The line is designed for operating parameters typical of dynamic milling, such as small width of engagement and a high depth of cut facilitated by a large cutting length. The chipbreaker produces short chips even when cutting depths are significant, the company says. The cutter is available in two grades. WJ30RD works well for steel and cast iron, while WJ30RA is designed for stainless steels with secondary applications in ISO S and N. Overall, the cutting system is designed for diffi- cult-to-cut materials or unstable conditions due to the machine, workpiece or clamping. The tool makes full use of the entire cutting length, giving it an even wear pattern. Additionally, heat is dissipated via the chip, improving tool edge life. It works well in both high- and low-volume production environments. With its flexibility, the milling cutter is suitable for the diverse range of tasks required for dynamic milling operations. Typical application areas for the company's dynamic milling cutter line include general engineer- ing, aerospace, energy, and the mold and die industries. | Walter USA LLC 262-347-2400 SMART Surface Grinding Okamoto Corporation Visit our website now.
