Walter Surface Technologies’ line of annular core cutters is more resistant to impact and stress, less brittle and impervious to deformation thanks to a recent redesign of the popular product line. The Walter core cutters — the SST Core Cut, the ICECUT and the Carbide Core Cutters — now utilize a sophisticated mixture of high-speed steel and aluminum (M2Al), setting the standard for efficiency, reliability and high performance, the company says.
The SST Core Cut is the longest lasting uncoated core cutter available. Made with a surface treatment that reduces heat transfer, the SST Core Cut is ideal for use on construction sites and in manufacturing processes. It is designed with an exclusive multiple tooth design, where the teeth of the core cutters are made at various heights and depths so that they can provide a faster drilling time.
The ICECUT core cutter is known for its unparalleled performance when compared to other coated cutters. It is coated with aluminum-chromium nitride PVD coating (AlCrN), making it ideal where lubricants are problematic to apply or not permitted. This special coating forms a nano-sized lubrication layer when heated, which prevents debris from rubbing, melting or deforming onto the metal. In addition, the ICECUT core cutter has a heat resistance over 500 degrees C higher than a Titanium-coated cutter, and more than 200 degrees C than a Titanium-Aluminium blend, making it the most heat resistant core cutter available, the company says. Like the SST Core Cut, the ICECUT also features the multiple tooth design.
The Carbide Core Cutter is the company’s top performing cutter. It allows users to maximize productivity when cutting hard metals and uneven surfaces. Primarily designed for extreme applications, the carbide core cutter has the ability to pierce through abrasive materials and non-ferrous metals such as stainless steel. It has a special lubricant zone that allows lubricants to get closer to the teeth, resulting in a cooler and smoother cut.
“Annular core cutters are already a cost-effective solution when drilling large holes through thick and flat metal surfaces,” says Stephane Drainville, product manager at Walter Surface Technologies. “By formulating our core cutters with this new blend of high-speed steel and aluminum, we can increase the life of the product, precision and quality of the hole being drilled, which leads to additional cost savings to our customers.”
