Walter has unveiled the new Walter Titex reamers. These new reamers are solid carbide up to 13 mm diameter; above that sized diameter they have a solid carbide head. The reamers feature shank tolerance of h6 according to DIN 6535 HA and come in two versions: The straight fluted F2162 for blind and through holes, which comes in sizes ranging from 4 to 20 mm in diameter, while the spiral fluted F2171 for through holes is available in sizes ranging from 2 up to 20 mm diameter.
Both versions have diameter tolerance for h7 hole size, and cutting geometry that features unequal division for best roundness and surface quality. The versatile new reamers are engineered for use on steel (ISO P), stainless steel (M), cast iron (K), aluminum (N), heat resistant alloys (S), and hardened steels (H), as well as composites and plastics (O) rendering them well suited for the automotive, aircraft, energy and medical device industries, as well as general metalworking. They can help boost productivity, thanks in part to the fact that they are usable on machining centers with shrink fit and hydraulic chucks, and deliver reliable tool life due to their high run-out accuracy, thus enhancing process reliability. They also deliver optimal surface quality and roundness.
