The Victory platform will include new extensions to the best-in-class WIDIA M1200™ series face-milling cutters and inserts, new TN series turning grades specifically engineered for steel and cast-iron applications, and the new Top Drill M1™ modular drilling system.
“The WIDIA Victory portfolio defines the standard for productivity-improving products,” says Bernie McConnell, vice president, global marketing. “Best-in-class performance is an essential step toward best-in-class cost-cutting and improved profits for WIDIA customers.”
New M1200 Milling Tools
New additions to the M1200 Series of face-milling cutters and inserts from WIDIA, part of the company’s Victory platform of advanced milling, turning, and holemaking tools, are providing superior results for manufacturers working in steels, stainless steels, high-strength steels, cast irons, and now even non-ferrous materials. In addition to the hugely successful M1200 face-milling range, WIDIA has added grades and geometries specifically for machining aluminium and non-ferrous materials and a new member to the popular series: the M1200HF™ face-milling system.
“With 12 cutting edges, the M1200 series offers many cutting edges per insert, which all perform at higher speeds and feeds while achieving lower power consumption due to superior design versus other double-sided platforms available today” says Josef Fellner, global product manager, indexable milling team, at Widia. “It’s a proven best-in-class system, and these new options really complement the series.”
New Turning Grades for Steel and Cast Iron
The TN7100™ series is a new group of coated-carbide inserts of WIDIA inserts for turning steels. It is specifically engineered for finishing, medium-duty, and rough machining of all types of alloyed and unalloyed steels. The TN7100 series delivers exceptional value on key productivity metrics such as surface finish, longer tool life, consistent performance, and lower manufacturing costs.
The new TN7105™ coated-carbide grade from WIDIA is specially developed for light to medium turning applications in steel with a projected 30 percent performance increase over previous WIDIA grades. Improved edge toughness provides smooth outer surfaces that increase tool life through reduced friction and workpiece sticking. A new alpha aluminum layer supplies improved coating integrity at higher speeds, making higher productivity possible at high cutting temperatures.
The new WIDIA TN5105™ carbide grade for turning is engineered for medium machining and finishing cast and ductile irons. Excelling in continuous-finishing applications, TN5105 provides exceptional value in such key performance metrics as surface finish, extended tool life, and consistent performance, with lower overall manufacturing costs as the result.
With the same excellent wear resistance and edge toughness of TN5105, the new TN5120™ grade is specifically engineered for medium to rough machining of all cast-iron work materials, including wet and dry machining and interrupted and non-interrupted cuts. With a high-hardness substrate for superior speed capabilities, TN5120 is also most suitable for turning austempered ductile iron (ADI) materials, with their higher strength and toughness characteristics compared to conventional ductile irons and forged steels. ADI materials are commonly found in heavy truck, bus, automotive, railroad, agricultural, and other heavy-duty components.
Precision Holemaking with Top Drill M1™
The new Top Drill M1™ Modular Drill from Widia gives users the best of both worlds by combining the economic benefits of modular drilling systems with machining performance and hole quality comparable to solid-carbide tools.
The modular tools offer feeds/speeds and performance levels commonly achieved with solid-carbide drills. Metal-removal rates are up to 50 percent higher than competitive modular drills while providing longer tool life and improved hole quality. Non-regrindable inserts eliminate the logistical and tool-life challenges associated with using reconditioned inserts.
Widia’s new Top Drill M1 even provides an alternative to competitors’ HSS, spade, and brazed drills in tough applications, allowing speed and feed increases of 40 to 50 percent with longer tool life and improved hole quality.
