The Tiger·tec Silver line now covers the full range of steel turning applications.
Walter USA, LLC has announced the release of four new cutting tool insert geometries for its Tiger·tec Silver turning product line. They include the RP5 for roughing, the MP5 for medium machining, the MP3 for low carbon steels, and the FP5 for finishing.
- The RP5 geometry works best for roughing with high depth of cut and feed rate. Its positive 3° chamfer reduces power requirements and its open, deep and wide chip breaker groove maintains low cutting temperature, reducing wear.
- The MP5 geometry was specifically designed for general machining of steel – from continuous cutting of bar stock to interrupted cuts. In addition, its reinforced chip breaker blades ensure better chip breaking and reduced tool wear.
- The MP3 geometry is best suited for medium machining on long chip forming steels such as low carbon and forging steels. Its cutting edge works well for machining forged parts like gearwheels, ball joints, transmission shafts or cold pressed sheet components such as cover plugs or converter housings.
- For finishing operations and light cuts, the FP5’s double V chip breaker has a positive, curved cutting edge, which reduces the tendency to oscillate and improve surface finishes.
