Turning Inserts ensure smooth machining.

October 24, 2014

Featuring Universal Roughing geometry, WIDIA Victory™ Inserts deliver optimized chip flow that results in smooth machining and extended tool life. WIDIA Victory FS geometry consists of ground, high positive design best used in finishing tasks where surface finish and minimized part deflection are critical. Inserts handle difficult-to-machine materials like Inconel and Rene in complex aerospace applications or cobalt-chromes and high-alloy stainless steels for precise medical applications. Read More

High-Torque Universal Hydraulic Chuck suits rotating applications.

October 22, 2014

With front wall cross-section thickness that lends to compact and stable design, HydroForce™ HT maximizes tool life, workpiece surface quality, and production flexibility. Rigidity optimizes cutting parameters and results. With vibration dampening, runout is 3 microns at 2X dia overhang, and balance quality of G2.5 is achieved at speeds up to 25,000 rpm. Direct clamping is available for 0.75 and 1.5 in. dia, and reducer sleeves are applied for all other diameters. Read More

Milling Grade is suited for machining cast iron.

April 30, 2014

Designed for extended tool life, WK15CM WIDIA Victory™ grade is available for face mills, shoulder mills, and copy mills. Fine-grained alumina layer promotes wear resistance by optimizing coating integrity at elevated speeds, while post-coat treatment increases cutting edge toughness by improving coating stress. This helps fight thermal cracking and coating flaking. Furthermore, cutting edges are micro-polished to lessen cutting forces and friction and workpiece sticking. Read More

End Mill Pullout Protection System increases reliability.

November 27, 2012

Accommodating round-shanked cutting tools, SAFE-LOCK™ system by Haimer GmbH pull-out-protection and adapter system enhances security in heavy-duty cutting. Positive locking and concentric accuracy of less than 0.00012 in. increase process reliability, cutting tool life, and productivity. Helical grooves ground into tool shank, together with respective pin drivers in holder, prevent tool from spinning or being pulled out of holder under extreme machining conditions. Read More
