WALTER-Speedmax ' new Xtra-tec tool range includes the F 4042 universal shoulder milling cutter.
Fitted with rhombic double-edged indexable inserts of high-positive geometry, the tool ensures maximum cutting performance at low power consumption.
The extremely smooth cutting action, which is practically free from vibration, ensures excellent surface finish and maximum tool life.
The approach angle Kappa of precise 90° prevents the generation of steps on the produced shoulder face, thus reducing the number of required operations.
The F 4042 cutter covers the complete range of metalcutting operations, and it is especially recommended for the roughing and finishing of steel, cast iron and non-ferrous metals. Due to its versatility, no finishing tool is required.
For the different workpiece materials, cutters with the ideal number of teeth and indexable inserts are available, thus ensuring suitability to the individual machining operations.
Three types of inserts, cutting length of 8, 12, and 16mm, are recommended for the cutters within the diameter range of 10mm to 160mm.
As mounting variants, the universal ScrewFit interface and the bore fixture for face mill adaptors are available.
For small diameter tools, cylinder and Weldon shanks are offered in addition.
