Walter’s wedge-clamped Xtra•tec F4045 heptagon cutter offers the greatest cost efficiency for milling faces of all cast iron workpieces. The negative, sevensided indexable inserts, which are available in two sizes, have 14 cutting edges and cut very softly thanks to their positive geometry. The milling cutter can be supplied as standard with a diameter of 200 mm and has a close pitch designed for cast iron, seven-edge indexable inserts in a 45-degree position and two different insert sizes. For less robust machines or unstable clamping arrangements, Walter also provides a variant with a medium pitch. Seven edges – That means 14 useable cutting edges because the symmetrical indexable inserts are not only indexed radially, but also reversible in the true sense of the word. The F4045 is, therefore, an extremely efficient cast iron cutter, which drives down cutting edge costs. A positive overall geometry brings about a soft cutting action and reduced power consumption.
