With so wide a range of uses, users can lower tooling and administrative costs. More savings accompany the decreased the need for finishing operations thanks to its 90-degree approach angle.
Walter Tiger·tec cutting tool materials, the high number of teeth, and small indexable inserts make it suitable for workpieces with small machining allowances.
The Xtra·tec XT M5130 features two pitches for different applications and a stable cross section created by the modified installation position of the indexable inserts. Available in diameters of 0.5-6.0 in. (10-160 mm), and geometries F55, G55/G65, K55 and M85/K85, the Xtra·tec XT M5130 is ideal for the energy industry, die and moldmaking, as well as general metalworking.
