Walter GPS targets tool selection

Walter USA LLC, Waukesha, Wis., has unveiled its Walter Global Productivity System (Walter GPS). The Web-based tool selection system allows users to identify the most productive and economical tool solution for their particular application online.

The site (http://www.walter-tools.com/en-gb/tools/search_and_shop/pages/default.aspx ) helps users to first identify the task to be performed. Walter GPS then asks for the workpiece material and the basic geometry of the part. It then allows the user to enter tolerances and specific conditions, such as slanted entry or cross holes. The machine used and the hourly machine rate can also be entered. All this data can then be saved into the system and retrieved in the future.

Then, drawing from Walter’s catalog of more than 49,000 tools, the system suggests the most appropriate ones for the user’s application, together with cutting data, economic efficiency calculations, tool life data and information on optimum cooling. It is also possible to link to related machining operations. For instance, when searching for the ideal tool for a threading application, the user can also have information on the most  suitable core hole drill for the job displayed.

Walter GPS was designed to help users increase productivity and efficiency said Peter Muller, manager of solid drilling and reaming tools R&D at Walter. “With Walter GPS, users can benefit from the accumulated expertise and decades of experience of our specialists in all matters concerning machiing.”
