Walter: Insert Grades WPV10 And WPV20 For Perform Turning Tools

WPV10 and WPV20 are the latest insert grades that Walter USA has introduced to its Perform line of turning tools. Designed for versatility and cost-effectiveness, they cater to users whose machines are limited in cutting parameters. These resourceful inserts can handle different materials, as well as machines that come in small or medium sizes.

Both grades have chemical vapour deposition coating and gold colour for easy wear detection. In field testing, the inserts demonstrated superior process reliability and good chip control with tool life increases of up to 100 percent when compared to their counterparts.

Doosan Machine Tools: DMP 500/2SP Vertical Machining Centre

Doosan Machine Tools: DMP 500/2SP Vertical Machining Centre

The DMP 500/2SP is Doosan Machine Tools’ latest addition to its existing line of vertical machining centres. Compared to single-spindle machining centres, this model has two spindles and two automatic toolchangers(ATCs). The system effectively doubles productivity by machining two parts simultaneously, reducing work loading, unloading and idle times.

For reduced set-up times, the right spindle features a W-axis adjustment of 20 mm, allowing quick compensation for any variability in fixture heights between spindles. With the 520.7 mm Y-axis stroke, it offers a machining space well-suited for a range of parts. The dual ATCs feature 1.7 second tool-change times, keeping the tools in the cut longer.
