New WIDIA Victory M1200HF™ and M1200 Mini™ Face Mills

(LATROBE, PA) – New additions to the WIDIA Victory M1200™ series of face-milling cutters and inserts, part of the new WIDIA Victory™ platform of advanced milling, turning, and holemaking tools, are providing superior results for manufacturers working in steels, stainless steels, high-strength steels, cast irons, and now even non-ferrous materials. In addition to the hugely successful M1200 face-milling range, the M1200HF™ (High Feed) face-milling system and M1200 Mini™ now extend the series.

M1200HF (High Feed) is a unique tooling solution that accepts standard M1200 HN .09 inserts already available today, but by utilizing machining science to incorporate a chip-thinning effect, can achieve extraordinary metal removal. “This design allows for feed rates of up to 14X higher feed per tooth versus even our high-performing standard M1200!” says Josef Fellner, global product manager, indexable milling team. “With 12 cutting edges, the WIDIA Victory M1200 series offers many cutting edges per insert, which all perform at higher speeds and feeds while achieving lower power consumption due to superior design versus other double-sided platforms available today. It’s a proven best-in-class system, and these new options really complement the series.”

The M1200 Mini offers the same 12 cutting edges and higher performance results of the M1200 series but in a smaller size (up to 3.5 mm maximum depth of cut). Extremely capable in aerospace, transportation, and general engineering applications, the M1200 Mini offers easier cutting at higher speeds – more metal removal at lower power consumption.

Features and benefits for the WIDIA Victory M1200 face-milling system include excellent chip forming and evacuation capabilities, high feed load capability, and superior accuracy of insert positioning, allowing for excellent tool life and surface finish. “The message is: exceptional value, productivity, and cutting performance,” says Fellner.  “The result is not only the best tool for the job, but the best cutting economics for a broad range of manufacturers. It’s truly the first and best choice in face milling.”
