New M200 Milling Series from WIDIA Offers High Performance and Productivity for Multiple Applications

LATROBE, Pa. — With the launch of the rugged new WIDIA™ M200™ series, customers get multipurpose milling in a single tooling solution.  The latest addition to the WIDIA Victory™ tooling line, this new entry from WIDIA sets the standard for performance and productivity, outperforming competing lines in roughing and semi-finishing applications, from die and mold to energy and aerospace.

The M200 Series’ interchangeable double-sided inserts (IC12mm) are capable of running in multiple types of milling operations and workpiece materials. This series of milling inserts is available in three distinctive geometries specifically designed for multiple milling tasks: ML for stainless steel and high-temperature alloys; MM for general purpose milling, including steel; and MH for heavy applications such as cast iron and high-strength steels. With 12 cutting edges, the M200 series offers a competitive cost per edge in a high-performance product.

Available in milling grades WK15PM, WP25PM, WU35PM, WP35CM, the innovative M200 series is designed to work effectively at high speeds and is engineered to deliver longer tool life in finishing to heavy roughing operations. Additionally, WIDIA included an anti-rotation feature in this new platform to enhance insert stability and safety during operation.

Tool bodies for the M200 series also come in a variety of internally cooled styles, including screw-on, Weldon®, cylindrical, and shell mill.  Each body style is designed with an easy-to-use anti-rotation feature, providing excellent stability at high feed rates and cutting forces. Each of the tool bodies also has ample clearance to allow pocketing, profiling, and 5-axis machining applications.
