WIDIA M6800 Milling Series

LATROBE, PA – Engineered specifically to streamline the milling of steel, stainless steel, cast irons, aluminum, or difficult-to-machine materials, the new WIDIA M6800 series delivers numerous performance and productivity breakthroughs, including roughing and finishing with the same cutter.

Specifically, improved flutes and high axial and radial rake angles reduce cutting forces for improved production and greater tool life. New elliptical angles generate true 90-degree shoulders where required.

“Pocket milling, plunging, circular milling, and profile milling are a few of the applications that will benefit from the new M6800 series,” says Jay Verellen, product manager. “We now offer maximum performance and productivity for virtually all shoulder-milling applications.” The M6800S, M6800M, and M6800LX offer a maximum depth-of-cut of 6mm, 10mm, and 15.7mm, respectively.

Three grades and 2 geometry choices are available in each of the M6800 sizes, offering a simple choice for light machining of cast irons through heavy machining of steels and high-temperature alloys.
