Turning Inserts maximize performance over wide materials range.

October 3, 2014

Delivering chip flow that promotes smooth machining, efficiency, and tool life, WIDIA Victory™ turning inserts include Universal Roughing (UR) geometry with optimized chip breaker and rake profile design without inflection points. Several grades are available. Available in PVD grade, FS geometry has ground, high positive design with precision grinding, proprietary nose geometry, and optimized edge treatment. Rake angle reduces cutting forces as well as built-up edge. Read More

Universal Hydraulic Chuck suits all rotating applications.

September 30, 2014

With thick front wall cross-section, HydroForce HT™ provides rigidity necessary for optimized cutting parameters. Chuck achieves G2.5 balance quality at speeds up to 25,000 rpm, and features vibration dampening to enable runout of 3 microns at 2X diameter overhang. Direct clamping is available for 0.75 and 1.5 in. diameters, and reducer sleeves are applied for all other diameters. Chuck is suited for milling, drilling, reaming, and other rotating applications.

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
