New ISO Inserts from Walter
Walter has introduced Tigertec Silver ISO K inserts, designed to boost performance and reliability in the machining of grey cast iron, ductile iron, and higher strength steel alloys under difficult conditions.
These inserts achieve dramatic performance increases due to the new aluminum oxide coating with an optimized microstructure that delivers improved crater wear and heat resistance. They also permit reduced machining time by enabling higher cutting parameters, and are suitable for wet or dry machining.
The Tiger•tec Silver ISO K has an MK5 geometry that features an open chip groove for reduced cutting forces and low cutting temperatures, a strong zero degree land plus a ground seating surface, all combining to further boost reliability and process security even with dynamic loads. Tigertec Silver ISO K comes in two grades, WKK10S and WKK20S.
