Walter introduces heptagon cutter designed to suit a range of cast-iron machining conditions
Xtra.tec F4045 heptagon cutter
The Xtra.tec F4045 heptagon cutter from Walter features indexable inserts with 14 cutting faces and is available in close and medium pitches to suit a range of cast-iron machining conditions.
Designed for cutting depths in the 4–6mm range, the F4045 is said to be able to easily and quickly swap the negative basic shape insert geometries — stable, universal and easy cutting — and the cutter can utilise Tiger.tec Silver or PVD Tiger.tec WKK25-grade inserts.
The clamping wedge pivots after just a few turns of the clamping screw at the side, making the inserts readily accessible, according to the company.
The Automata is a gantry loader designed and built by IEMCA for feeding, unloading and storing bulk components. It is available from 1st Machine Tool Accessories.
