Aimed chiefly at milling and boring machines, the M3016 features a carbide axial stop for high process reliability that works as an emergency cutting edge to protect the clamping screw and insert pocket from damage, reducing tooling costs in the process. The M3016 uses four grades of advanced Tigeṙ·tec Silver cutting tool material: WKP25S, WKP35S (CVD) and WKK25S, WSP45S (PVD), which boosts both tool life and process reliability while also reducing cutting material costs.
The BLAXX M3016 from Walter tackles ISO material groups P, M and K, and difficult applications such as machining frames made from cast iron for large molds, or housings for wind energy rotor hubs.
An advanced web-based detailed dashboard reports Daily, Weekly and Monthly breakdowns of machine availability. Shops can view their machines Cycle On/Off & Setup times and trending for their top Machine Downtime reasons over a specified range of dates. This breakdown and display of machine downtimes leads them to actions based directly from their machine monitoring data, which will create increased machine up-time. (second view)
New web-based machine monitoring dashboards and new monitoring reports from eNETDNC help shops increase their machine uptime.
