New WIDIA Catalogs for North America

(LATROBE, PA) – An exciting new combined program of over 20,000 cutting tool solutions from WIDIA is now available to view in three new WIDIA master catalogs just released to the market.

Just released inch and metric versions of the new WIDIA Turning Catalog cover applications and supporting technical data for the wide range of WIDIA turning products as well as those of related WIDIA brands, including WIDIA-Manchester™, WIDIA-Circle™, and WIDIA Clapp-DiCo™.

Included are full technical descriptions of such lines as the WIDIA Victory™ TN5100™ series of inserts for turning cast irons and the new WIDIA Victory™ TN7100™ series of inserts for turning steels. Advanced materials science and coatings capabilities are at the heart of improved wear resistance, longer tool life, and enhanced metal removal rates.

WIDIA Indexable Milling & Holemaking is a dynamic, all-in-one reference work, detailing the latest key products, target applications, and supporting technical data for the extensive WIDIA indexable milling and holemaking product lines. Clearly identified modular sections introduce key features of each indexable milling and holemaking product, and also include best tool choice application guides, application data, and product-specific technical advice.

The newest WIDIA indexable drilling and milling products are covered, including new extensions to the popular WIDIA Victory M1200™ milling series, the WIDIA Victory M1200 High Feed™ and the WIDIA Victory M1200 Mini™.  New geometry design features enable the WIDIA Victory M1200 High Feed to achieve high metal-removal rates, resulting in significantly shorter cycle times compared to competitive tools.

The WIDIA Victory M1200 Mini also features geometric design features that result in lower cutting forces and higher feed capabilities, with many options available for addressing a wide range of work materials. On the holemaking side, line extensions to the WIDIA Victory TopDrill M1 line of modular drills deliver the precise holemaking capability and productivity of solid-carbide tools at a fraction of the cost. Other new holemaking products include the TopCut™ and TopCut Plus™ with high feed rates and enhanced self-centering capabilities. “Together with Greenfield Tap & Die (GTD), the oldest tap line in North America, now sold as WIDIA-GTD, WIDIA provides a complete holemaking solution from drilling to holefinishing, says Chris Merilin, senior global product manager, holemaking. “This optimizes purchasing and support efficiency for the customer via a single source for all their holemaking needs. ”
To complement the impressive indexable offering in milling and holemaking, the new Solid End Mills & Holemaking highlights the complete round tool offerings from WIDIA-Hanita™ and WIDIA-Rübig™, including standard and custom solutions in solid end mills, solid carbide drills, and multi-flute reamers.

Unique advantages such as in-house PVD high-quality coating facilities (TiN, TiCN, TiAIN, and AlTiN), a wide range of raw materials (HSS, HSS-E, HSS-Powder; solid carbide, and brazed carbide), and capabilities for diameters from 0.25mm to 75mm (0.010 in. to 3.000 in.) position WIDIA-Hanita and WIDIA-Rübig as the preferred brands for high-quality, application-specific tools.

“’Win With WIDIA’ is the overall theme encompassing these new catalogs, and with more than 10,000 new products available for the improved productivity of North American manufacturing, it’s job shops and customers of all sizes who are the real winners,” says Jerry Hanna, director, WIDIA Products Portfolio.

Many of the products featured in the new master catalogs will be on display at IMTS.  All of the new catalogs are now available in print or as a downloadable PDF file at, Downloads tab.
