Tooling expert Walter GB Ltd, Bromsgrove (www.walter-tools.com
), is now including customised indexable inserts as part of its Walter Xpress fast delivery service, complementing the success of the service for solid round tools and indexable-insert tool-holders and bodies.
‘Bespoke’ indexable insert specials tools can be provided in just three weeks, while ‘special’ indexable inserts can be supplied in four weeks.
The first indexable inserts to be available via the service are the high-performance P6000 drilling inserts (orders from 10 to 200 pieces), which have diameters from 12 to 37.99mm and are suitable for holes with IT8 or IT9 tolerances.
The inserts can be ordered in intermediate sizes or with a special shoulder design (for example, land or radius).
Also available on quick delivery — and pictured — are the four-edged indexable inserts in the MX Cut system (orders from 10 to 50 pieces), which have a maximum cutting depth of 6mm and cutting widths between 1 and 3.3mm.
These can be ordered in intermediate sizes with a full radius, straight edge or lands between 30 and 50deg.
