Walter raises its lightweight machining prowess with the FMT brand

April 29, 2024 4:53 pm

Walter has launched the Walter FMT competency brand, combining its global presence with the technical expertise of lightweight machining specialist FMT. The new brand represents a leading partner with solution experience across the full lightweight machining process globally.

Walter is increasing its profile in the machining of lightweight components with the launch of the new Walter FMT competency brand. The machining solutions provider is combining its global footprint with the technical skills and know-how of lightweight machining specialist FMT (Frezite Metal Tooling) to form the new brand. Walter FMT represents a leading partner with solution experience across the full lightweight machining process – globally. Pedro Pacheco, FMT’s previous Managing Director, will lead the new brand.

Walter’s Expansion in Lightweight Materials

The proportion of lightweight materials, such as aluminium alloys, in the overall share of  processed materials in the manufacturing industry continues to grow significantly. Machining  specialist Walter has therefore been consistently expanding this area of its portfolio for  years. The PCD offer of Walter and its subsidiary Frezite have been brought together, in order to advance specific customer projects and further develop the market. The new Walter  FMT competence brand showcases the importance of lightweight machining for Walter to the  outside world. It stands for the added value that Walter offers its customers, through  various services from consulting and planning to implementation and maintenance, and for a  trusting partnership that goes far beyond the tools.  

Pedro Pacheco will be responsible for the new competence brand, as Vice President of Walter  Lightweight Business Unit. He served as the first managing director of FMT from 2006 to  2017 and took over the role again in 2019. Pedro Pacheco said: “My focus will be on  bringing together the expertise and working methods of FMT and Walter’s PCD division in  the best possible way. We want to significantly increase our reach in the market and  contribute to Walter’s strategic growth targets. I want to create the right structures and  processes to be able to provide current and potential customers with an attractive offering  that enables them to achieve their own economic goals.”
