Universal eXcellence In Milling

Walter Xill·tec combines performance with wide applicability

With Xill·tec, the solid carbide milling cutters in the MC230 Advance product range, Walter is presenting a new range of products: A new type of high-performance geometry with an asymmetrical helix (35°/38°) was combined with Walter's own wear-resistant and high-performance grade WK40TF. The result is a tool family with high performance that also offers universal applicability for roughing and finishing. The milling cutter experts have consolidated the developments of the past ten years in the Xill·tec range. The asymmetrical helix, the most important feature of the geometry, enables smooth, low-vibration operation: This is essential for long tool life and process reliability. Fractures are avoided and the high level of operational smoothness contributes to the soft cutting action of the Xill·tec milling cutter.

The solid carbide milling cutters are suitable for all ISO material groups (P, M, K, N and S) as well as all common milling operations, such as shoulder milling, ramping, (helical) plunging and full slotting (up to 1×D), while exhibiting a high performance level. This is also true for innovative machining strategies such as dynamic milling. The comprehensive range of products also contributes to the universal applicability of the Xill·tec: The milling cutters are available with and without corner radii, with centre cutting edge, reduced neck, protective chamfer, cylindrical and Weldon shank. The universal applicability and an outstanding price/performance ratio make the milling cutters an appealing option not just for sub-suppliers and channel partners, but also for users in a wide range of different sectors.
