New Xtra·tec® XT M5130 Shoulder Milling Cutter from Walter handles a wide array of operations and materials.

New shoulder milling cutter boosts productivity enhances reliability and cost efficiency.

Walter has introduced the Xtra·tec® XT M5130 Shoulder Milling Cutter, a new universal tool that has been engineered for high productivity and optimum stability, resulting in superior process reliability. It handles a wide array of machining operations including face milling, shoulder milling, ramping, pocket milling, and circular interpolation operations. The mill is best suited to machining steel, stainless steel, cast iron, non-ferrous material and materials with difficult cutting properties.

This wide range of uses results in lower tooling and administrative costs, as does the fact that its 90° approach angle dramatically decreases the need for finishing operations. Walter Tiger·tec® cutting tool materials, the high number of teeth, and small indexable inserts also makes it ideal for workpieces with small machining allowances.

The Xtra·tec® XT M5130 Shoulder Milling Cutter features two pitches for different applications, and a stable cross section due to 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.
