Milling grade coated to increase cutting-edge toughness

May 8, 2014

Widia Products Group offers the WK15CM Victory™ grade for face mills, shoulder mills, and copy mills with dedicated geometries for cast-iron milling. A fine-grained alumina layer helps increase wear resistance by improving coating integrity at elevated speeds.

A proprietary postcoat treatment helps increase cutting-edge toughness to fight thermal cracking and coating flaking. The cutting edges are micropolished to ease cutting forces and reduce friction and workpiece sticking.
