Thanks to their high-feed face geometry and low radial load, the high-speed MC025 Advance and MD025 Supreme solid carbide milling cutters from Walter (Waukesha, WI) provide exceptional process reliability. The cutters are available with cylindrical shank or ConeFit head systems.
The MC025 Advance is available in diameters from 1/8 inch to 1 inch (1 mm to 25 mm). A single grade is offered for universal applications for steel, stainless steel, cast iron and materials with difficult cutting properties as well as its ability to lower inventory costs. It has a long peripheral cutting edge for good chip removal and for providing support when machining walls. It excels at near net-shape roughing with high feeds per tooth at low depth of cut; and successfully tackles pocket, groove, and freeform surfaces. The cutter is finding acceptance in the die and mold industry as well as general metalworking.
Featuring a high number of teeth for maximum productivity and high-feed face geometry, the MD025 Supreme is ideal for use on complex components. It enables near net roughing with high feeds per tooth at low depth of cut; provides for a short and stable peripheral cutting edge; and, like the MC025 Advance, successfully tackles pocket, groove, and freeform surfaces. Available in diameters from ¼ inch to 1 inch (6 mm to 25 mm), the MD025 is offered in two grades to customize the application whether machining carbon steel, stainless, or materials with difficult cutting properties. Both grades are suitable for use in the die and mold industry as well as the medical technology, energy, and aerospace industries.
