New WIDIA Victory TOP DRILL M1(TM) Combines the Best of Modular and Solid-Carbide Drills
(LATROBE, PA) -- The new WIDIA Victory TOP DRILL M1(TM) Modular Drill, part of the new WIDIA Victory(TM) platform of advanced milling, turning, and holemaking tools, 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.
Available over a standard diameter range of 8.00 to 20.99 mm (0.3150 to 0.8264 inches), and in length/diameter ratios of 3x and 5x, drill bodies come in either flanged-shank (metric) or round-shank (inch) configurations. They feature solid coupling for consistent performance from insert to insert and easy insert changes on the machine due to a front-clamping mechanism.
Inserts are offered with a UP(M) geometry in grade K20FTiAlN, featuring an application-oriented differentiated point design aimed at cost-efficient holemaking in steel and cast-iron components.
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 Victory 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.
WIDIA products and services have defined innovation in the metalcutting industry for more than 80 years - from the world's first patent for carbide indexable inserts to the development of the world's first coated grades. The WIDIA brand offers a complete portfolio of precision-engineered products and custom solution services. With thousands of milling, turning, holemaking, and tooling systems products available through a worldwide network of authorized distributor partners, you'll find everything you need from one single source.
