Via its Walter
Xpress rapid delivery service, the machine tool manufacturer is now offering customers special tools delivered within four weeks, less than half the time it normally takes — and at little more than the standard price.
Customers were already able to order certain milling cutters, drills and indexable inserts through the Walter Xpress service, but the company is now adding grooving tools and cutting inserts to the list.
As a result, the G1011 and G4011 monoblock grooving tools and the double-edged and four-edged cutting inserts from the DX, GX and MX systems can be ordered via Walter Xpress. These tools are available in shank sizes of 10 to 50mm, as a square shank with approach angles from 0 to 90deg or with Walter Capto C3–C8.
This now provides Walter customers with access to a wide portfolio for radial grooving, parting off and groove turning, with and without precision cooling, which they can tailor to their specific needs.
The goal is to offer customers tools that are perfectly adapted to their circumstances. For example, tools that are as long as necessary and as short as possible to achieve maximum stability, therefore decisively increasing the tool life and surface finish quality.
The customer can configure their tools online within minutes, alongside their on-site Walter engineer, selecting such features as the shank version that suits their needs, various approach angles, with or without internal coolant, as well as the required width, reach and approach angle for the application.
In addition to short delivery times and an attractive price-performance ratio, customers also receive an automated quotation drawing included with the quotation, validating the tool dimensions selected.
